Athletics consist of a variety of sports at a variety of levels and each team consist of a variety of positions. Regardless of the sport, the team, the level or the position, being an Athletic Spouse comes with a unique set of challenges that can be difficult to understand. The National Association for Athletic Spouses (NAAS) recognizes that Athletics is a community within itself and that it is important for us to be connected.
Below you will find a variety of communities. Some are position specific, others are sport specific; while we want everyone to find the community or communities that fit you best, we also want to recognize that Athletic Spouses as a whole is 1 community and NAAS is here to bring us ALL together.
The Coach's Wife- This is a place to share your questions and ideas on anything from how to keep your kids content in the stands to how to deal with negativity from fans. **Note: All members must first verify being a coach’s wife and agree not use the group to sell products or services.** (This private group is open for the wives of coaches - of any sport and at any level.)

Wives of Strength Coaches- A group for Strength & Conditioning Coaches' Wives. It can be difficult for us to get to know each other in "real" life since there is usually only 1 or 2 of us at any given school.
