This case study assessed the lived experiences of staff and volunteers following the implementation of a gender-inclusive registration policy at a youth soccer club. Policymakers at other youth soccer clubs, the provincial and national organizations were also interviewed to add to the depth of the landscape regarding policy development and implementation. Results showed that while policy development, including language, is still in its early stages, decision-makers at all levels were open to discussing the topic and their lived experiences. Policies set by these organizations are used as examples by other youth sports to aid in their respective inclusivity policy development.
