Equality Coaching Alliance was formed in 2011 as a virtual network to bring together LGBT sports coaches and their supporters. We strive to represent all sports at all levels: youth, scholastic, adult recreational, professional and elite.
What we do:
- Provide a members-only online forum for coaches, whether closeted or out, to interact with each other, sharing concerns, raising questions, and seeking and providing peer counseling
- Work on education and advocacy initiatives to improve awareness of LGBT coaching issues and encourage more inclusive and supportive sports environments for athletes and coaches
- Provide educational coaching speakers for seminars and conferences
- Speak out on developing relevant issues and events that affect LGBT coaches, through media outreach and our ECA Blog.
