team captains

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Team Captain. Without Team Captains, we wouldn’t be able to produce a premium tournament experience for all participants. For 2023, it is our intent for Team Captains to assume an expanded role.

If you wish to lead a team, please register as a Skater during registration, and check the box that you are interested in becoming a Team Captain. 

Once we have a pool of interested candidates, Seattle Pride Hockey Association will reach out to each individual to connect and hear your vision as Team Captain. We intend to select all Team Captains by Friday, April 20, 2023. You will then want to plan to participate in the below meetings. (Be sure to mark your calendars in advance in the event that you are selected!)


…prior to the tournament:

  • Assemble teams through a draft to be held on Monday, May 1, 2023 at 8:00 PM at Union Seattle. (In-person attendance will be required of anyone interested in being a Team Captain. If unable to attend in-person, please try again in 2024).

  • Attend one final virtual pre-tournament logistics meeting on Monday, June 5, 2023 at 8:00 PM via Microsoft Teams.

…during the tournament:

  • Offer and lead introductions in the locker room prior to your first game. Everyone’s name, position preferences on the ice (don’t worry, every team will get a handy lineup sheet), plus pronouns and potentially any strategies you may have.

  • Direct and lead a team of LGBTQ+ and ally participants. This includes uplifting your team if you find yourself down a goal in the third period.

  • Ensure all participants take part in both the All Stars of Pride and Player of Pride nominations process.

  • Help facilitate participant questions as they relate to the schedule, locker room assignments, and team standings.


As a thank you for your dedication and time as Team Captain, individuals selected to be Team Captains will receive a $75 voucher to utilize at 32 Bar & Grill.
