As a force in education through sports, we vow not to stop at condemnation, but to strive to be a force for reconciliation, through the collaborative actions with coaches throughout our country.

We owe it to our young athletes and their generation to show them the possibility of a better world, one in which bigotry, oppression, hatred, and violence are truly unacceptable. As their trusted coaches and leaders, we can prepare them for a world, in which they are not only invited to the table to discuss issues that impact them most, but they are asked and empowered to lead these conversations.

During COVID-19, PCA has pivoted to Zoom workshops and
Webinars.
In the past few weeks, PCA has hosted events with the Phoenix Suns,
Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, and more.
PCA led the way in some of these conversations,
none more important that our Zoom Roundtable on
How Sports Can Battle Racism.

On Monday, June 29, PCA hosted a Virtual Roundtable titled "Sports Can Battle Racism: How Coaches, Parents, and Administrators Can Play a Positive Role." The conversation was moderated by PCA's Marti Reed and Trennis Jones and included representatives from PCA's partners RISEWe Coach, and the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation.
