The Black Coaches & Administrators (BCA is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to foster the growth and development of ethnic minorities at all levels of sports both nationally and internationally. The BCA is committed to creating a positive enlightened environment where issues can be examined closely, debated sincerely and resolved honestly. The BCA's focus involves the concerns of its colleagues in professional sports, NCAA (Division I, II, and III), NAIA (Division I and II), junior college and high school levels.
On May 31, 2007, BCA Board of Directors unveiled the new name of the organization during the 2007 BCA National Convention and Expo. The name change was made to clarify the expanding membership population of administrators and coaches within the BCA. Subsequently, BCA is now Black Coaches & Administrators.
The BCA Past, Present and Future:
In 1987, the issue of ethnic minority advancement was being discussed simultaneously by two separate, but significant African American coaching groups, the assistant basketball and football coaches. Eventually, these two groups merged to form the nucleus of what would become the Black Coaches Association. The BCA was founded in 1988 and the membership was extended to all coaches.
Throughout the BCA's 20-year history, the organization has been at the forefront of the effort to enhance the employment opportunities and professional development of the ethnic minority professional. While maintaining this original mission, the BCA has continued to view the immediate and future concerns of the association within the framework of our rapidly evolving society.
The BCA of the future has a "Planned Positive Vision." Our organization will systematically work toward the resolution of the issues we face by following a positive goal-oriented program of achievement.
