Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion

Calgary United Soccer Association (CUSA) is committed to encouraging diversity, equity and inclusion in its administration, policies, programs, and activities.


Diversity - the presence and integration of a variety of individuals with different personal characteristics, particularly Under-Represented Groups, in a group or organization.

Equity - fairness afforded to individuals with diverse personal characteristics regardless of those characteristics. 

Inclusion - acceptance of individuals with diverse personal characteristics into a group or organization regardless of those characteristics.


Membership Engagement:

In celebration of the diversity within the CUSA Membership annually we host the Indoor Nations Cup.  Players participate representing their country of heritage. 

2024 saw 50 teams participate, from 30 different nations in 4 different divisions (Men's Open, O35, O45 and Women's).
