About Us

The San Diego Soccer Women website and social media profiles show the world that women can play soccer throughout their lives, featuring players ranging in age from their thirties to seventies and eighties competing in leagues and tournaments. Positioned as an advocate for “play at every age,” Brandi Mitchell started San Diego Soccer Women to connect and expand the global community of recreational female soccer players over age 30. San Diego Soccer Women increases opportunities for women to join, continue or return to the game without the limits of age, gender or ability through recreational soccer teams, leagues, tournaments, travel, events, nonprofits and gear. Next steps for Brandi including improving access for women through beginner sessions, walking soccer and goalkeeper training. Inspired by the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, she sees a future where everyone can experience the physical and social benefits of play.
