Greetings ladies! I hope this finds you all doing well and enjoying the season with your coach and your families. My name is Lindsay, and I am your AFCWA President. My coach and I have been married twelve years and we have three daughters: Emma, Erin, and Eden. One of the many things I most love about the AFCWA is the opportunity to meet coaches’ wives from all over the country and connect with them. It is also where I met some of my closest friends who truly get this football life and where I draw support when I need it.
Our great organization strives to connect with you and reach you where you are. We have over 300 members whose husbands coach at various levels from high school, college to professional. We are here to serve you, our members, and would love to hear from you! We can connect with you thorough our social media platforms in Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or you may email your board of directors anytime. We provide some members only benefits including Zoom sessions to check in with our members and connect with each other. As no one understands this life quite like another coaches wife. We have seen so many connections made with our members and we encourage you to invite wives on your staff to join us and become a member of the AFCWA.
This convention year, we find ourselves headed to the Queen City, Charlotte, NC. As this will only be the second time the AFCA/AFCWA convention will be in this location, we look forward to bringing you some programs and activities that will be unlike what we have seen in the past few convention cities. We look forward to seeing some old friends and meeting some new ones. This year I encourage you to reach out to a new coach’s wife and encourage her to attend convention with you. I know I personally use my time at convention to reconnect with old friends who understand my life as a football wife with young children so I can fill up my tank for the year ahead.
Wishing you the best,
