Welcome from our president!
Are you an American Football Coach’s wife? You have found the right place to connect with other women around the country who celebrate your joys, comfort your pains, and all around support this life!
Welcome to the American Football Coaches Wives Association! We strive to provide camaraderie, support, information and service to the wives of American Football Coaches. We meet annually at our Convention in conjunction with our husband’s American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Convention in cities across the United States.
We are an organization of over 300 strong whose husbands coach at all levels including High School, JUCO, NAIA, Division III, Division II, Division I, and Professional. The beauty is although we are at different levels with different situations, we ALL experience very similar lives. No one understands this life like a fellow wife! In over thirty years of existence, while times have changed, we are still in need of someone else to cheer us on in our trials and tribulations as well as high five us in our victories.
Throughout the year we have many opportunities to uphold one another! Join us on our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) to connect with each other both virtually as well as live! We also have a Seasoned Wives New Wives support system which connects individuals together to have a sounding board, a safe place, sage advice, and life-long friendship. We present the Donell Teaff Scholarship each year to a deserving wife who is pursuing higher education. Our Founding Mothers and early members felt strongly about supporting wives who wanted to better themselves. Annually this scholarship is awarded at Convention. Who can forget service?! After all, our life really is all about serving others. Each year at Convention we are able to serve those who have sick children by making a generous donation to the local Children’s Hospital. This is done through the generous hearts of members and friends of the AFCWA.
We continue to ebb and flow to provide an experience and opportunity which meets fellow wives where they are! We would love for you to join us today and throughout the year! Hope to see you soon! Make plans now to join us in Nashville January 10-12, 2021 for a few days of deep connection with the Wives of the American Football Coaches Association!
Please reach out if we can help you in any way!
