The Foundation

The Foundation was established by the AFCA in 1998 to fund its education mission. Contributions generated by The Foundation will ensure that the coaching community will continue to have the finest possible professional development and educational tools now and in the future. These tools will be accessible and affordable to coaches from high schools, colleges, and universities - small and large, rich and poor, big city or small town, and everything in-between.

“Coach George Smith is not only an influence on young people, but the influence is multiplied many times in the beliefs of the young people he helped mold into amazing human beings. George is an outstanding coach, but more importantly, he is an outstanding gentleman.” —Tina Jones, Principal of St. Thomas Aquinas High School
