The Black Coaches Classic grew out of a concern for the underrepresentation of Black leaders in coaching and in the administrative ranks of scholastic and collegiate athletics. Bob Hohler wrote in the Boston Globe on August 22, 2020, that, "The lack of Black leaders in New England college sports is what institutional and systemic racism looks like".

​The Black Coaches Classic seeks to provide resources and support for coaches, game officials and administrators. Programming happens in three phases, youth engagement, coaches recognition, and community enrichment. We produce a basketball coaches clinic, complete workshop style for community enrichment, . We recognize decorated coaches at our basketball invitational. We continue to engage youth in the summer and other out-of-school programs side by side with partner programs.

Abusive coaches make up only a tiny percent of all those who take their time, energy and love for their sport to devote it to children, yet the impact of their behavior on their victims and those that witness it is long-lasting and potentially life altering.

We can do better!

  • Student Voice

    If a player has their voice heard and valued, they are more likely to be invested in all aspects of the team. Players will become more engaged when they realize that their voice matters. They will play with more effort and be more goal-focused.

  • Coach's Role

    In an age where employers crave decision-makers and creative problem-solvers, training young people as we do now to robotically conform to every order just as 1900’s factory workers did, is not filling the needs of 21stcentury youth.

  • Curriculum

    There is no curriculum for athletics, there are no specific outcomes or goals for students that apply to all teams, school and district-wide.  Coaches are left rudderless, and therefore, players have uneven experiences within the same school.
