USL will have all players and staff undergo mandatory training to address diversity and inclusion

The USL will work with the USL Players Association and the boards of governors of the Championship and League One in order to increase sanctions for players and coaches found to have used foul and abusive language.

It has partnered with The Institute for Sport and Social Justice to provide league-wide training and education for all staff and players. The organization has been delivering large training services to collegiate and professional sports organizations -- including Major League Soccer  -- working to address social issues, including diversity and inclusion, in sports.

The Institute's trainers -- former athletes who are familiar with the sports culture -- work to engage participants in meaningful discussions and develop strategies to address social issues.

    Looks like Landon Donovan and the San Diego Loyal made their point!  Good for them. 


    Also, should the league referees be issued a list of known slurs used by players, coaches and fans? When a referee says he heard the word, but didn't know what it mean, so no reprimand of the offending player?  There's got to be some kind of directive, list, whatever, because no one should be allowed to stay on the field if they've engaged in a red card offense. Staff and players need the training but don't forget the refs!
