Black Liberated Athletes Coalition (BLAC), is a club made out of specifically Black Athletes. However, we do welcome everyone and encourage anyone who is interested to join us.

At Waterloo, Black athletes feel as if the only space they feel comfortable in is either on the hardwood floor or the football/soccer field. So basically Black Athletes are only comfortable in their area of specialty, which is "sports".

This is why we have created BLAC. BLAC will be a club that will allow Black Athletes to do more than just throw a football, run the track, or dribble a ball. BLAC will be a club that allows Black athletes to get comfortable by doing the uncomfortable.

The purpose of this club is to promote the exchange of language and culture between students by forming small study groups. With the multicultural student body of UW, we are able to match up each student's preferred language to learn with other students who are knowledgeable in that language and can teach. This club compliments the academic languages courses nicely, and provide an opportunity to learn languages in a fun manner. Individual sessions will focus on improving the individual's speaking, listening and writing (grammar & spelling) skills through lectures as well as fun activities incorporating students’ hobbies and interests. This also serves as a great opportunity to prepare students who wishes to participate in foreign exchange programs.
