Women’s Soccer – Explosive Growth & Explosive Problems

After Title IX was initiated in the 1970s, soccer emerged as a popular sport for women. It is now the fourth most popular sport in the United States in terms of participation. Although there are still more men playing soccer in high school and college than women, the numbers of soccer-playing women have exploded since the 1980s. So has the abuse (physical, sexual and emotional).

More than one in four women college athletes (all sports) experience some type of sports-related sexual abuse during college, and often coaches are the perpetrators.

The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) is responsible for the game’s good health at more than 1,500 US soccer colleges, where high codes of conduct for administrators, coaches and players are expected to deter misconduct. But student-athletes say it isn’t working.

Abuse Is Never Right. Contact Us for a Complimentary Consultation.

A Case for Women is working with DiCello Levitt Gutzler, the law firm currently representing a number of exceptional women who allege widespread violations of Title IX and being subjected to devastating abuse while playing volleyball for the University of South Alabama.

Coaches Are Given Carte Blanche When They’re Winning.

In addition to sexual abuse, there are reports of verbal and psychological abuse, which includes daily body-shaming, personal taunts, isolation, manipulation and physical punishment reminiscent of military hazing. The torment results in higher instances of eating disorders, depression and suicidal ideation. Many players end up quitting, even if it means forfeiting their scholarships.

Psychologically, the problem goes so deep. For love of the game and a chance at greatness, top athletes are vulnerable to degradation, humiliation and sexual predation from the same authority figures who can give them a shot at their dreams.

The Movement is Beginning.

College soccer players need to come forward to create lasting change in their school’s athletic culture. Action is time-sensitive while administrators are in the spotlight, pressured to address allegations of coaching misconduct they have previously ignored. It may be a temporary window of opportunity.

We’ve Fought This Battle Before.

A Case for Women is an organization of mission-driven women helping others take their power back after being abused by predators under the negligent eye of profiteering institutions. Our team has been honored to work with gymnasts who were abused by Larry Nassar, college athletes abused by Robert Anderson at The University of Michigan, boys hurt while under the protection of the Boy Scouts of America, women violated while using rideshare companies and much more.

Our goal is to create systemic change through helping one person at a time engage in civil legal action.

It is our honor to work with plaintiff law firms that provide affordable services on a contingency-fee basis. On this initiative, we are working with powerhouse law firm DiCello Levitt Gutzler (Chicago, DC, NYC, Cleveland, Detroit, St. Louis and Birmingham), to assist college soccer players caught up in this crisis.

Widely recognized for “relentless and effective” defense of personal injury victims, DiCello Levitt Gutzler most recently earned acclaim for its handling of a suit against Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard, who is behind bars after being indicted in the U.S. for sex trafficking and the rape of at least 57 women.

Now the firm turns its attention to power violations in college soccer and other university team sports long overlooked by administrators and board members. DLG is currently reviewing cases on behalf of players who were sexually and/or emotionally damaged by a coach’s misconduct.

DiCello Levitt currently represents a number of exceptional women who allege widespread violations of Title IX and being subjected to devastating abuse while playing volleyball for the University of South
Alabama.

Such abuse of power can permanently alter a person’s life. We Want to Hear Your Story.
