Our Commitment to Social Justice

NVYSL recognizes the importance of this moment in our society, a collective reawakening to persistent damage done by systemic social injustice.

There is no room for discrimination, microaggression, or unconscious bias on our youth soccer fields.  Anything that disenfranchises members of our community on the basis of sex, race, religion, immigration status, gender identification, socioeconomics, disability, etc. is a direct attack against our constitutional mission.

While we cannot hope to cure these ills in the short term, we can begin by simply stating a commitment to equity in our youth soccer community.  NVYSL affirms and echoes the statement made by United States Youth Soccer (USYS) at :

NVYSL rejects all racism, hatred, intolerance, inequity and violence.  We will strive to listen, learn and act positively to confront hatred, make change and inspire peace.  We are stronger when we unite as one voice.

NVYSL Eagerly Awaits our Return to Play

The COVID-19 pandemic has interfered with all aspects of our lives in varied and unexpected ways, and that includes cancellation of our Spring 2020 soccer season.

As we gently transition into successive phases of the Reopening Massachusetts Plan announced by Gov. Baker (, NVYSL looks forward to a time when we can facilitate opportunities to play soccer in a manner that is safe and productive for every member of our community.

NVYSL believes that resumption of youth sports will provide a potent vehicle for physical, emotional, and social recovery in our kids.  In other words, youth soccer is worth fighting for!

Until we can meet again on the pitch in a safe way, NVYSL wishes our entire community health, well-being, and resiliency during these challenging times.
