2024 Grassroots Symposium

September 20 - September 22

US Youth Soccer Presents the 2024 Grassroots Symposium: Building on a Legacy of Inclusivity and Impact

Salt Lake City, Utah | September 20-22

 

US Youth Soccer proudly presents the 2024 Grassroots Symposium, a testament to our commitment to fostering inclusivity, belonging, and positive impact through the beautiful game. Building on the success of previous editions, this year’s Symposium will take place in the vibrant city of Salt Lake City, Utah, bringing together soccer practitioners, administrators, and visionaries from across the nation. New for the 2024 event will be a series of workshop presentations focused on TOPSoccer and the disability soccer community.

 

Empowering Soccer Practitioners:

The heart of the 2024 Grassroots Symposium lies in equipping soccer practitioners – program administrators, executive directors, board members, and coaches – with the tools they need to create programs deeply rooted in inclusivity and belonging. 

Our goal is to empower those who shape the future of youth soccer, ensuring that every child, regardless of background or ability, finds a place to thrive within the soccer community.

 

Uniting Diverse Organizations:

This year’s event is set to unite not only traditional soccer clubs, leagues, and associations but also nonprofits that leverage soccer as a powerful tool for positive impact. By bringing together these diverse entities, we aim to create a collaborative space where ideas are shared, partnerships are forged, and collective strategies are developed to maximize the positive influence of soccer on the lives of young people and families.

 

Event Highlights:

  • Engaging Workshops: Dive into interactive workshops covering a spectrum of topics, from effective coaching methodologies to building inclusive soccer programs. We are excited to feature tailored content created in collaboration with TOPS Soccer and other disability inclusion experts.
  • Dynamic Keynotes: Gain insights from renowned figures in the soccer world, whose stories and experiences will inspire and motivate.
  • Networking Opportunities: Connect with like-minded individuals, fostering relationships that extend beyond the symposium and contribute to the growth of the soccer community.
