We are all deeply saddened by the racist and hate-filled letter recently directed toward a soccer coach in the Treasure Valley. Soccer is about making memories, learning, dealing with adversity, respecting others, and learning life skills through our varying youth soccer organizations. Racism and hate have no place in our community and in our beautiful game and let’s remember today that this person does not speak for Boise Nationals Timbers nor any member of our diverse and inclusive soccer community.
Thanks to Juniors FC for speaking out and sharing. We stand firmly behind them and we are all committed to working toward a hate-free environment across all phases of life, sport and beyond.
