“United Soccer Coaches is the trusted and unifying voice, advocate, and partner for the development of coaches at all levels of the game.”

Diversity Statement

United Soccer Coaches is committed to fostering diversity by offering a welcoming and supportive environment for all our members, leadership, and other constituents. We nurture a learning and working environment that respects differences in culture, age, gender, race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, and socio-economic status.

We recognize that diversity enriches the membership experience, improves the practice and profession of coaching, expands learning opportunities, and enhances creativity and professional growth in the coaching community. United Soccer Coaches emphasizes both demographic and intellectual diversity. We are committed to attracting and developing qualified persons of diverse backgrounds to participate and lead in our organization.  This includes our advocacy work, our recognition programs, the development of our services and education, as well as our coaching and outreach programs. Embracing diversity and inclusion requires a coaching curriculum and other learning experiences that provide exposure to diverse cultures, human characteristics, and ways of thinking. Our organizational must create a climate that stimulates innovation, values contributions from those unlike ourselves, and encourages the success and advancement of all our members.

United Soccer Coaches particularly acknowledges the acute need to remove barriers to the recruitment, retention and advancement of talented members, leadership and other constituents from historically underrepresented populations. As such, United Soccer Coaches fosters diversity in our staff and advocates for all of our members by welcoming their participation in our programs, by embracing diversity and inclusion training, and by remaining mindful of diversity and inclusion in the formulation of policy and in decision-making.
