Anti-racism in Coaching

Coaches in Canada play an integral role in creating a fair and inclusive environment for their sport. While the impact of racism in sports and coaching can be far-reaching, so can the effects of anti-racism coaching education.

Anti-racism in Coaching eLearning module

The new Anti-racism in Coaching eLearning module addresses critical and timely issues raised by coaches and sport organizations in Canada. To upskill coaches working with racialized participants, the module will provide historical context about marginalized people in Canada, build awareness of racism in sport, and provide tools for contemporary anti-racist coaching methods – all through a Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) lens. 

Community of practice

In continuation of the important steps taken with the creation of this module, the CAC will develop a community of practice to continue the crucial conversations around anti-racism in coaching and sport.   

Module fees

The $15 fee will be used to sustain the Anti-racism in Coaching module as current information becomes available and to continuously improve the module content. In addition, the CAC is excited to announce the launch of a grant program to increase the number of opportunities for equitable, diverse and inclusive coach development initiatives for the sport community that will be supported in part through fees collected.
