Celebrating Juneteenth: Educate and Inspire


Positive Coaching Alliance is proud to celebrate Juneteenth. Through our work with Black and Brown community leaders to implement local sports equity agendas, Sports Can Battle Racism programming, and national coach recruitment strategy, together we strive to increase equity and access in Black communities and lift up and celebrate their inspiring stories.

RECAP:  From Barriers To Belief

A month-long journey in celebration of Black History Month as we took our first major step in expanding the Racial Equity and Access in Youth Sports Task Force from a singular community initiative in Oakland, to a national effort in low-income communities of color across the country. More content coming in Summer 2022!

Sports Can Battle Racism

In response to the national call for an end to racism, PCA launched the Sports Can Battle Racism (SCBR) initiative—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.  Click here to learn more about Sports Can Battle Racism.
