Minority Opportunities Athletic Association, Inc.

Fact Sheet


The Minority Opportunities Athletic Association (MOAA) provides opportunities to exchange ideas, advocate increased participation and administrative opportunities for minorities in athletics. The MOAA also promotes generating a sports culture that supports the values necessary to teach and learn respect for self and others.



A group of minority professionals in athletics formed the MOAA out of concern for the lack of diversity in sports administration. The Association was formed in 2000 as a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization and will hold an annual Convention in conjunction with the NACDA Convention, develop a resource center that identifies programs and supports diversity, conduct research to find solutions to athletics problems and provide postgraduate scholarships for ethnic minority college graduates who will pursue a graduate degree in athletics administration. 


The Association is guided by six principles:


1.  Promote the ideals of diversity, integrity, sportsmanship and teamwork among the organizations and individuals that participate in athletics.


2.  Provide member services that address the needs of minorities professionally, emotionally, financially and physically in athletics.


3.  Encourage members to serve as community outreach agents who promote moral, ethical and educational values.


4.  Enlighten the general public, media, institutional educators and athletics administrators about the benefits of athletics participation.


5.  Work with the legislative arms of athletics governance groups on issues that affect minority participation.


6.  Develop the Association into a financially and structurally sustainable entity.
