DEI | Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

CASA SOCCER LEAGUE is committed to supporting and fostering diversity, equity and inclusion among its players. We recognize that diversity, equity and inclusion are multifaceted and that we need to address these subjects holistically to better engage and support all groups, particularly those who have been historically marginalized and underrepresented. We also recognize that our differences bring richness to soccer.

This commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion means that:

CASA will not tolerate discrimination based on age, gender, race, national origin, sexual orientation or any other social identity category and/or defining characteristic.

CASA will cultivate and support an inclusive culture and environment, where all individuals regardless of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion, nationality, age, socioeconomic background, financial means, marital and family status/makeup, physical ability, health status, neurodiversity, ancestry, and citizenship are supported and able to succeed in the sport of soccer.

Discrimination of any kind or intolerance of any level has no place within in our league whether on the field, on the sidelines, in the stands, or at our events.

Yunio Martinez (he/him/his)

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Officer :  Ymartinez@phillysoccer.org

"Soccer, for me, is a place to leave my problems aside, play the sport I love, and meet new friends. I have played soccer in Philly since I moved here from Guatemala. Eight years ago, I joined the LGBTQIA soccer club (Philadelphia Falcons). I have served on the Falcons board for 8+ years, and I am happy to say that in 2021 I became CASA Soccer League's first ever DEI Officer! The community has shown an immense amount of support for our first years DEI initiatives and I am excited to see what the future holds"
