Play with Pride

SAVE THE DATE: The seventh annual Play With Pride Week is scheduled for October 8-14, 2023! Play With Pride Week is an initiative was developed in 2017 by the association’s LGBTQ+ & Allies Coaches Community.

Rainbow Laces

Each year, soccer programs across the country join United Soccer Coaches in showing their support for athletes and coaches of all sexual orientations and gender identities by wearing rainbow laces to support diversity and inclusion in the game. The rainbow laces order form for 2023 has closed.
