The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Athletes Advisory Council Application

US Youth Soccer has officially announced the formation of its Athletes Advisory Councils, which will bring together as many different perspectives as possible to provide feedback and ideas on our sport.

Eight individuals will be invited per council group, with the councils holding a one hour Zoom session quarterly. Those selected to serve on the council will hold a one-year term, and will then be replaced by a new group to allow as many perspectives as possible. Please see below for a list of councils that will be launching:

13U - There will be a council for both boys and girls.

15U - There will be a council for both boys and girls.

17U - There will be a council for both boys and girls.

US Youth Soccer also wishes to hear the thoughts of those no longer playing since recreational soccer is not prevalent in the older age groups -- which we are striving to change. There will be three more councils for those that are no longer playing soccer.

13U - One council with four boys and four girls.

15U - One council with four boys and four girls.

17U - One council with four boys and four girls.

Finally, US Youth Soccer aims to be as inclusive as possible, and will create one last council that represents the transgender population.

13-17U - One council of four boys and four girls.

The council meetings will be moderated by individuals that have played youth soccer at the elite level within the past six years, and they will provide each council with core questions while allowing the conversations to naturally progress.

Please use the form below to apply.
