The Symposium is the pinnacle of the year for our membership to both energize and educate our community leaders, to Celebrate Females in Soccer. We salute the trailblazers who have paved the way for the next generation, to close the gap in equality for an enriched player experience and drive for credible leadership. Our guest speakers are a blend of local, national and international expertise to address on and off the field topics to not only improve our female player’s experience in the game, but also to provide valued career opportunities.
