Pink Turf: Waitlist Form for the 2020 Season
Pink Turf Soccer League (PTSL) is an adult non-profit recreational soccer league open to members of the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Women (cis and trans), trans people, intersex people and Indigenous two-spirit people are all welcome in the league. PTSL understands trans to be an inclusive term which includes trans men, trans women and non-binary folks (including genderqueer and genderfluid people).
We’ve been a cornerstone of Toronto’s queer community since 1985, making us the longest continuously-running 2SLGBTQ+ soccer league in Canada. We play throughout the summer at Withrow Park in the city’s East End.

The Pink Turf Collective tries to ensure our ten (10) teams, which are selected via a new blind draft each season, are balanced with players of all skill levels. In our experience, having balanced teams helps to promote our league values and improves league-wide spirit!
To assist the Collective, we ask players to provide a self-assessment of their skill level from 1-6. These numbers are not published or available to our members unless they are a Collective member, assisting with the new player assessment or team formation.
Your self-assessment in no way impacts your eligibility to play in the league or our desire to have you join us!!
If you are not sure how to rank yourself, please consult the chart below.
Are you a new or returning player?

If this is your first year playing with us or you have not played with us in a few years (and to assist us with making the teams as balanced as possible), we ask that you attend a clinic with us.

Our Clinic will be held at Ballsports Polson Pier (176 Cherry Street in Toronto, Ontario). The facility has free parking and it is also accessible via TTC.
The Clinic will take place on one of the turf fields in the covered dome, which is past the driving range and beach volleyball courts. Once you are inside the dome, turn left and join us on Field 2.
We will be doing some soccer-related drills, followed by a scrimmage.
we will notify you of your timeslot at least a week prior to the Clinic. Please ensure you arrive at least ten (10) minutes before your timeslot. Please bring cleats, socks and shinguards. If you do not have these items, please let us know.
