Microaggressions are the everyday, subtle, intentional — or oftentimes unintentional — behaviors and interactions that communicate bias or derogatory attitudes toward historically marginalized groups. They can be heard on the playing field, on-campus, or in locker rooms, as an insult, or even as an unconscious errant comment or gesture.
Words have meaning, and in order to do our part to dismantle the systems of racism that persist, we must be aware of and confront our biases and the impact they have on others. Microaggressions will continue to exist only if we let them.
Join us in understanding and growth through our Sports Can Battle Racism initiative.

Pre-register for our next Sports Can Battle Racism Roundtable webinar powered by TeamSnap coming up on February 3rd, 2021! In celebration of National Girls & Women in Sports Day, as well as Black History Month, we will be hosting a conversation with Black Females on the topic of Self Expression Through Sport.
Through our roundtables, we are providing coaches and leaders across the country with the tools needed to battle racism and foster a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
In response to the national call for an end to racism, PCA has launched the Sports Can Battle Racism (SCBR) initiative as a focused effort to go beyond condemnation and develop solutions that work to battle racism within the environment of sports.
PCA strives to be a driving force in this effort by partnering with coaches and leaders across the country, providing them with the tools needed to foster a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
