The Wisconsin Football Coaches Association (WFCA) believes that football along with other sports have been a shining example of how teammates work together to achieve common goals. As a professional organization of coaches, we acknowledge that many students, coaches, and families of color face the challenges of racism. We also believe that it is our duty to instill an attitude of acceptance and inclusion amongst our athletes, regardless of race, creed or religion.
We believe that football and other sports have the power to break down barriers and work to eliminate injustice, prejudice, and discrimination. Football and other sports bring people together, build unity and teach lifelong values such as personal responsibility and respect for others.
The WFCA condemns exclusion and is committed to positive social change within our society for all people. As leaders, we will use our platforms and positions to promote justice, equity, and fairness. The coaches of the WFCA are united in our commitment to fight racism and other forms of discrimination to create an inclusive society where all individuals are able to flourish and achieve their dreams and aspirations!
