2021 Urban Soccer Symposium

register today!



The 2021 event will feature crucial plenary conversations, workshops, and thought leadership discussions around the pivots made during a global pandemic - a time when inequities have been illuminated in great detail. Our very own Grassroots Soccer Manager, JT Dorsey, will be presenting the Urban Soccer Diploma at this years event in March. This is free to register and open to all sports, join us today!

To advance the conversation on play equity, workshop topics will include:

  • Integrating anti-racist coaching practices
  • Using empathy to drive connection
  • Fostering social change through sport
  • Hiring and retaining female coaches and leadership
  • Using collective advocacy to increase funding for sports-based youth development

We hope you will join us for this unique convening to learn from each other and gain tangible tools to use while enhancing the lives of all young people.
