Supporting our Players

  • We welcome players with diverse gender identities in our league, and our players' families include people with a variety of gender identities.  We expect all referees to respect and support all of our players, ensuring a positive experience for all in our league.  We encourage referee to use gender inclusive language when referring to players and to learn more about gender identity terms and personal pronouns
  • Evanston AYSO is a diverse community in many ways beyond gender identity as well, and that includes both our players and volunteers. We strive to create an inclusive community; if there are ways we can do better, or you'd like assistance identifying learning resources, please contact
