Building on the success of previous efforts to support and unite outreach organizations, US Youth Soccer will host the 2023 Grassroots Symposium. By uniting traditional soccer clubs, leagues, and associations, with nonprofits that use soccer as a tool to positively impact the lives of young people and families in their communities, the soccer community has developed actionable steps, plans, and processes to reduce the barrier of entry to quality soccer programming.

The 2023 Grassroots Symposium will build off the 15 years of crucial conversations which have led to dramatic shifts in the way that all young people have accessed the game. The event will continue to provide soccer practitioners (program administrators, executive directors, board members, and coach trainers) tools to ensure programs are rooted in inclusivity and belonging. The Symposium will serve to convene stakeholders across the board to connect traditional soccer programs and community-based organizations, providing resources on how to amplify partnerships, build relationships, and create club communities where all young people can thrive.
