US Youth Soccer (USYS) has taken firm action to establish and reaffirm their long-standing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. These actions will strengthen USYS culture and foster an inclusive, bias-free and equitable community that enables all of its members to achieve their full potential on, and off, the field of play. Through specific, deliberate and meaningful actions and investment, USYS seeks to make soccer a sport where everyone feels welcomed, respected and part of the team.
To ensure that each member of USYS understands that the ideals of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are essential to our organization, we ask that our members pledge to act off the field, how we do on the field; with a fierceness of character, determination, leadership, focus, passion and commitment to EVERY MEMBER OF THE TEAM.
As part of our commitment, USYS has assembled tools and resources to assist with further educating our community about the benefits and impact of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Together we can elevate the game we love for everyone.
