Gender Equality With CONCACAF Women
CL17 is delighted to be working with Concacaf W supporting their Next Play programs across the region. So far Cl17 has joined Concacaf W in Barbados, Los Angeles, and Dominican Republic addressing UNSDG5: Gender Equality in conjunction with Women’s Soccer events.
In LA we trained 34 young female coaches and then supported these coaches to deliver an exciting event for over 160 girls ages 6-12 from the Los Angeles area. These coaches came from all over Southern California and for most of them it was their first experience in coaching – especially in coaching Purposeful Play with a focus on social impact. We were also energized by the participation of several former and current professional women’s football players from all over the Concacaf region – including Costa Rica, México, USA and Canada. And it was great to see an old CL17 friend and World Cup Champion with US Women’s National Team in Lorrie Fair.
We are looking forward to using football, CL17 Purposeful Play and the Concacaf W Next Play methodology to create more safe, fun spaces for girls in other Concacaf countries in the near future including México. Contact CL17 to find out how you can get involved in this exciting inspirational partnership.
