During the summer of 2012, Rapinoe joined fellow national team members Hope Solo, Sydney Leroux, Alex Morgan and Stephanie Cox to play with the Seattle Sounders Women in between camps with the national team as they prepared for the 2012 Summer Olympics.
Of the signing, Sounders head coach Michelle French said, "Stemming from her leadership and success at the University of Portland, Megan has continued to evolve and grow into one of the most exciting, unpredictable, creative, and flashy players in the women's game." In January 2013, Rapinoe signed for six months with Olympique Lyonnais, the French side that had previously won six consecutive French league championships and two straight European titles, for a reported 11,000 euros (or approximately ,000) a month.
She was also named to the All-West Coast Conference First Team and the All-West Coast Conference Freshman Team.
Rapinoe played and started all 25 games as an attacking midfielder, scoring 15 goals and adding 13 assists for 43 points – ranking fifth for freshman point totals in the school's history."I know this sounds weird, but getting hurt was one of the best things that ever happened to me. Before, everything was going how it was supposed to be and I wasn't really appreciative of what I was doing and what it took to be there. The rehab process makes you stronger on all fronts, mentally and physically. I would never wish it on anyone, but I don't wish I could take it back." As a sophomore in 2006, Rapinoe was among the nation's leading scorers with ten goals and two assists in eleven matches.
She scored her first two goals on October 1, 2006, during a friendly match against Taiwan.
Elk Grove United finished second at the nationals after the Lazers scored a game-winning goal in the second half.
Rapinoe grew up in Redding, California, with her parents, Jim and Denise, and five siblings, including her fraternal twin, Rachael.
