More Mental & Spiritual  Support

Health & wellness is essential to athletic performance. While much is emphasize on the athlete's physical well-being, there is barely consideration for nurturing Black athletes' mental/spiritual well-being. Though at higher risk, programs fail to give adequate help. 


The Black Student Athlete Organizations Webinar was hosted by CADSA during Summer 2020 to provide an informational session for student-athletes around the country looking to start their own groups on campus. The event had over 60 participants, and athletes from DI-DIII colleges shared their insights and perspectives about the collective activist movement.
