Coaches are the lifeline of our sport.
Help us celebrate softball coaches around the country.
What: NFCA Day. We invite you to celebrate NFCA Day as a united community on your social media platforms. Join NFCA member coaches around the country as we build the coaching profession and move our sport onward and upward!
When: April 18, 2020 and leading up to it!
Where: Near or far, self-quarantine or in groups of 10 or less. Use your platform to recognize coaches in your community.
Why: This day will be used to celebrate and raise awareness for the softball coaching profession, the NFCA, and your school’s softball coach. The softball community will join together to show appreciation for the coaches in our sport across all divisions.
HOW TO CELEBRATE
Just like you, we had to adjust our campaign, too. But it's still simple to celebrate NFCA Day. Amplify the message across all social media platforms. This is your opportunity to honor a coach, thank a colleague, or recognize a competitor. There is no wrong way to celebrate this day!
Whether it’s by recognizing those who blazed the trail before you, encouraged you along the way, or continue to be motivation in your life - use #NFCAday to shout out their accomplishments and thank them for their efforts. Support staff, don’t be afraid to do the same for the coach at the helm of your program.
Get Your Student-Athletes Involved
This day is for coaches but student-athletes can get involved too. Use the day as a platform to thank your coaches. Let everyone know what your coach means to you. Marketing and Information offices are encouraged to create videos, posts, and appreciation stories about their coaches. Use the quote “Best. Coach. Ever.” to ignite this celebration movement.
While the NFCA began as an association for college coaches, our grassroots membership is growing at an unprecedented rate, with high school and travel ball members accounting for more than 50% of all active members. Remember many of these coaches are currently caught in limbo as well during this time with varying messages from their high school associations and governing bodies. Lift each other up as you rise!
At Arizona, Mike Candrea is the BEST. COACH. EVER. He never stops learning and inspires us to be better. #NFCAday @NFCAorg
Ashland's Emlyn Knerem is the BEST. COACH. EVER. She pushes me to be my best. Thanks to her, I can be called an @NFCAorg All-American. #NFCAday
I would not be coaching today if it weren't for Carol Hutchins. Thank you Hutch for your guidance and belief. #NFCAday @NFCAorg
