Staffing Commitments

In conjunction with providing playing opportunities, the MMM will also ensure coaches of color be present on the coaching staffs for College Connection Showcases. A round table forum will be facilitated to encourage networking and support systems for the minority coaches and players present at the Showcases. 

We are excited to start this new initiative to provide and support more opportunities for minority involvement and inclusion with our programs. We are motivated to increase diversity in the sport.
