Stance of Social Equity

FYSA supports and pursues social diversity throughout our programs. We are committed to providing equal access to our programs for all of the youth of our state without bias towards race, color, religion, age, sex, income level, social status or national origin.

We believe that soccer is the game for all kids and that by striving to reach, develop and serve all of the diverse communities throughout our state, we work to ensure that our belief becomes a reality.
