We invite youth soccer organizations to pledge to prohibit heading for under-14’s by calling ISLE’s Executive Director, Mike Gilleran, at 415.317.0371. Your organization’s name will then be listed on our website. The goal is universal participation so that no team has a competitive advantage based on putting child athletes at risk!

About the Institute of Sports Law and Ethics
The Institute of Sports Law and Ethics was founded by Santa Clara Law, the SCU Department of Athletics and Recreation, and the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics. Its 32-member board includes distinguished athletes and sports executives. The institute’s signature event is an annual Symposium on Sports Law and Ethics in September, covering subjects such as concussions, steroids, amateurism, and the commercial use of athletes’ images. In 2012 ISLE added a community outreach component, established the ETHOS Award, and created a task force to study amateurism.
