Racism, Inequality and Violence Statement

Sudbury Youth Soccer Association (SYSA), stands with the world against all racism, inequality and violence.  The recent events are painful reminders that bigotry and racial injustice continue to exist in our society.  As a community, let us use our voices to confront and reject hate.

Youth Sports play an integral role in uniting people regardless of race, religion or creed, and we will continue to foster that environment. Be assured that we remain fervently committed to ensuring that every child continues to feel cared for, respected, and safe. SYSA’s goal is to give all players in our program the opportunity to grow as athletes and as young adults without fear of intolerance or hate. Let’s band together with a mission to make the change we wish to see both locally and globally.  We are all in this together.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.- Martin Luther King Jr.
