MEMBERSHIP

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.


ELIGIBILITY

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.  A 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.


NOMINATION

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 for a period of 5 years. If not selected within the 5 year period, his name will be removed from the list.  In order to be reconsidered, his name would have to be resubmitted.

The member must furnish the necessary background information including records, contribution, etc. (This is very important.)

To nominate a coach or other citation candidate for the WFCA Hall of Fame, simply send his name and address along with a paragraph explaining why you think they should be inducted to:  office@wifca.org or PO Box 8, Poynette, WI 53955, We will do the rest! 

Note: Nomination Deadline is June 1st!  No Exceptions!  Nominations received after June 1st will be added to list of nominees for the following year.
