Registration is free for this year’s event.
The Symposium is described on the US Soccer Foundation’s website as presenting a “unique crossroads for youth sports practitioners, administrators, coaches, and community members to envision a world where all young people have the same access to high-quality sports programming.”
Through a blend of virtual workshops, keynote speakers, and networking opportunities, attendees will walk away with tangible tools they can use immediately to enhance their programming, and ultimately the lives of all young people.
