• Gender Equality With CONCACAF Women

    Last week CAC was back with Concacaf W supporting their Next Play programs across the region. Building off of our work in Barbados at the end of 2019, CAC joined Concacaf W in Los Angeles in conjunction with the final match of the Women’s Olympic Qualifiers addressing UNSDG5: Gender Equality.

    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 CAC friend and World Cup Champion with US Women’s National Team in Lorrie Fair.

    We are looking forward to using football, CAC 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 the Dominican Republic and México. Contact CAC to find out how you can get involved in this exciting inspirational partnership.
