Three categories will be considered for membership.
1. High School. In this category we will honor those people who have been outstanding achievers at the high school level. They can be either a head coach or an assistant coach.
2. College. In this category we will honor those people who have been outstanding achievers at the college level. They must be native to the State of Wisconsin if their achievements have come in an out-of-state school. This includes players as well as coaches.
3. Citation. This category would honor anyone who has been an outstanding contributor to the football program in the State of Wisconsin. This includes members of the media, administration, trainers, officials, etc.
All high school coaches considered for induction must have a minimum of ten years of coaching in the State Wisconsin. Priority will be given to coaches who have been out of coaching for five years or who have coached until retirement age. Criteria for selection will be based on record, longevity, and service to WFCA. It is further proposed that all head coaches in Wisconsin reaching 20 years of service be automatically nominated to the selection committee for consideration coach who has satisfied the above criteria and has reached the age of 50 can be nominated to the Hall of Fame even though he is still actively coaching.
Any member of the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association may nominate a deserving coach to the Hall of Fame Committee. Once a coach is nominated, his name remains on the list. His name will automatically come up for consideration in succeeding years without being resubmitted.
The member must furnish the necessary background information including records, contribution, etc. (This is very important.)
