US Womens Soccer Investigation Finds "Systemic Abuse”—Victims of Sexual Abuse May Seek Justice & Compensation


The team at Shield Justice Watch urges victims that suffered sexual abuse while playing soccer for the NSWL organization to get a free, private case evaluation.

A yearlong investigation found U.S. Soccer executives, N.W.S.L. owners, and coaches at all levels of American soccer had turned a blind eye toward years of reports of abuse from players.

A U.S. Soccer-commissioned investigation into abuse throughout the National Women's Soccer League unearthed new allegations of verbal, emotional, and sexual misconduct at the highest levels of the sport, and found that coaches, executives, the NWSL, and the federation itself "failed" countless players.

Just a few of the reported abuses included:

-One coach called in a player to review a game film and showed her pornography instead.
-Another was notorious at the highest levels of women’s soccer for alternately berating his players and then quizzing them about their sex lives.
-A third coach coerced multiple players into sexual relationships, behavior one top team found so disturbing that it fired him.

Those details and others fill a highly anticipated investigative report into abuse in women’s soccer that found sexual misconduct, verbal abuse, and emotional abuse by coaches in the game’s top tier, the National Women’s Soccer League, and issued warnings that girls face abuse in youth soccer as well.

"Our investigation has revealed a league in which abuse and misconduct-verbal and emotional abuse and sexual misconduct-had become systemic, spanning multiple teams, coaches, and victims," former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates wrote in a 319-page report.

"Abuse in the NWSL is rooted in a deeper culture in women's soccer, beginning in youth leagues, that normalizes verbally abusive coaching and blurs boundaries between coaches and players."

Yates and her investigative team interviewed over 200 people in total, and wrote that they "heard report after report of relentless, degrading tirades; manipulation that was about power, not improving performance; and retaliation against those who attempted to come forward.

The investigation found that NWSL teams, the league, and U.S. Soccer, the sport's national governing body, which previously ran the NWSL, "not only repeatedly failed to respond appropriately when confronted with player reports and evidence of abuse, they also failed to institute basic measures to prevent and address it, even as some leaders privately acknowledged the need for workplace protections.

In a statement alongside the release of Yates' report, U.S. Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone said: “This investigation’s findings are heartbreaking and deeply troubling.

The abuse described is inexcusable and has no place on any playing field, in any training facility or workplace."

The team at Shield Justice Watch believes that victims that suffered sexual abuse while playing soccer for the NSWL organization should receive justice and compensation for losses.
