WASHINGTON, D.C. – Coaches Vs. Racism (CVR) is a 501(c)3 national non-profit leading the charge to end systemic racism in sports. They are mobilizing coaches in the pro ranks as well as collegiate and amateur levels across the country to create an action-filled, educational and grassroots approach to inspire  .

CVR has teamed with the Big 10, College Coaches, Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and professional sports teams to promote awareness of social injustice, economic divide, equality, reform, and Systemic Racism (SEERS). Together, the groups aim to create a positive sports environment for all players by using education, conversation and community to build equality and understanding. The non-profit will work with coaches to ensure all players have access to the tools and resources necessary to develop student and professional athletes to their full potential and level the playing field.

As part of their mission, Coaches Vs. Racism has created the HBCU Roundball Classic, bringing Big 10 Schools, major universities and HBCU teams together for high-profile competitions. The games seek to amplify awareness of incredible athletic talent from both schools, and will place an emphasis on HBCUs who traditionally lack resources and equipment and are routinely overlooked by professional talent scouts.

“Our focus is to shine the spotlight on systemic racism as a root cause of the inherent disparities that exist in the sports,” said Darryl Woods, executive director of Coaches Vs. Racism.
