For a hundred years, the American Football Coaches Association has been dedicated to improving football coaches through ongoing education, interaction, and networking. Our primary goal is to provide resources for personal and professional development amongst the football coaching profession.
The AFCA now has more than 10,000 members, including coaches from Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, and Russia. Through annual publications and several newsletters, the association keeps members informed of the most current rules changes and proposals, proper coaching methods, innovations in techniques, insights in coaching philosophy, and business conducted by the board of trustees and AFCA committees. A convention is held each January to give members a special opportunity to exchange ideas and recognize outstanding achievement.
The AFCA is the team of the football coaching profession. All current and former football coaches or administrators involved with football are encouraged to join.

It works closely with the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, the National Football League, the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame, Pop Warner, and other organizations involved in the game of football.
