In an effort to highlight Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) in softball, volleyball, basketball and lacrosse, the Athletes Unlimited Intersectional Equity Working Group (formerly Racial Equity Working Group) launched #BecomingUnlimited – a program to highlight  the talents of BIPOC girls and young women in sports. The program is not only looking for players who are talented in their respective sports, but who are also active leaders on their teams and in their communities. 

The criteria for a #BecomingUnlimited athlete includes: 

  • The athlete is a strong player in their respective sport
  • The athlete’s social channels reflect values that are consistent with the values of Athletes Unlimited 
  • The athlete has demonstrated a commitment to community engagement and civic leadership
  • The athlete is a middle school or high school student (ages 11-18)
