Dear Coach‘s Wife,

I, along with the entire AFCWA Board of Directors and Trustees, would like to invite you to become a member of the American Football Coaches Wives Association! Our organization is here to provide you with camaraderie, support, information, and service, as well as new and lasting friendships. Whether your husband coaches in high school, college, or the pros, we are all wives of football coaches and we share a common sisterhood. We face the same concerns, joys, and needs as a coach’s wife. As part of the AFCWA, we are here to support YOU.

American Football Coaches' Wives Association

This year the AFCA convention will be held in Louisville, Kentucky. While your husband is attending meetings and chalk talks, the women of the AFCWA will have their own get-togethers, a brunch, a luncheon, program speakers, entertainment, and a hospitality room where you can relax, meet new friends, and catch up with dear friends. 

Your annual membership dues go toward scholarships for wives who desire to continue or further their education, provide a donation to the host city’s local children’s hospital, and support our service projects. You will also receive a bi-annual newsletter filled with articles from other coaches’ wives, tailgate recipes, and fun and helpful information.

If you are unable to attend this year’s convention in Louisville, you can still become a member of the AFCWA. Please consider joining the fun! You can visit us at or Like us on Facebook. We look forward to having you on our team!


Blessings for a successful season,

Sally Shannon
AFCWA President
