Players, your voices matter!
Our Goal : How do we want to make soccer a better place?
EVERYONE should feel safe in their life, and especially when they play.
As you know by now, SFYS is so much more than just a league facilitator. We understand that sport doesn't work without a solid foundation, with a connected community and effective network of integrated programming. To that end, SF Youth Soccer is pleased to announce a partnership with Jude Moore and Queer Youth in Action (QYA) to facilitate our inaugural SFYS Youth Advisory Committee (YAC). Jude is bilingual, a former teacher and a current and former soccer player.
What is a YAC?!
The purpose of the SFYS YAC (Youth Advisory Council) is to give you, the players (the MOST IMPORTANT people in the org!) a voice to represent yourselves and your peers - and be seen and heard by adults in positions of power. The SFYS YAC members will help determine what you want our community to learn, consider, understand ... and how you want to make our soccer community a better place for all.
As well, YAC is a place of community for you to take a breath and feel safe and comfortable around each other in opening up any painful or difficult dialogue: our SFYS YAC is rooted in transformative and restorative justice practices and ultimately is about providing space to think about how to heal community and bring joy to all.
You can bring up anything in YAC – big things like inequity of material resources, racism, homophobia & transphobia, body shaming, etc. BUT ALSO can bring up small things that you find difficult – every consideration is treated with respect and seriousness.
