Welcome to the first edition of the NSCAA Diversity and Inclusion Newsletter. Published quarterly, we'll provide information, updates, news and insights about our constituents and groups that serve diverse and underserved soccer communities.

As always, please feel free to contact us at feedback@nscaa.com with ideas and suggestions, or for more information.

NSCAA/FIFA Women's World Cup Blog from GermanyThe NSCAA WWC special topics group arrived in Germany on Monday June 27th. As it turned out, our hotel was only a 10 minute walk from the Dresden stadium through a city park. As we walked to the match, you could feel the excitement in the air and as we got closer, fans were flowing into the stadium.

The NSCAA did a terrific job securing front-row seats for our group and we could not only see but could also hear the action at field level.  Reserve players were warming up an arms-length away!
