Marriage & Family Ministry
YOU CAN PLAY A PART
by strengthening coaches on
the home front
If a coach’s home life isn’t strong, then his team can’t function at a higher level.
That’s why Nations of Coaches serves coaches and their spouses – to strengthen their marriages and families.
Game-Changer Marriage Retreat
Every year, coaches and their spouses are invited to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, good fellowship and learning, and some much-needed alone time at the WinShape Retreat in Rome, Georgia. This annual event is specifically designed to build into your relationship with your spouse, so your marriage can not only survive, but also thrive, throughout the high-pressured basketball season and beyond. The Game- Changer Marriage Retreat is presented by Nations of Coaches and WinShape Foundation.
Location: WinShape Retreat Center, Berry College, Rome, GA – Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the WinShape Retreat Center is surrounded by forests, meadows, and streams on a 27,000-acre wildlife preserve, about 90 miles from Atlanta.
Date: The 2020 Game-Changer Marriage Retreat will be May 5 – 7, 2020. Registration will open on January 15, 2020. Spaces are limited.
Cost: A $100.00 registration fee per couple which secures your reservation. The remainder of the cost (valued at $620.00) is gifted to you and your spouse by Nations of Coaches!
* Cancellation Policy: An additional $200.00 cancellation fee applies if you cancel your reservation after April 15, 2020. (This is 50% of retreat expense due to NOC having to pay for the room in full after the cancellation deadline.)
“My husband and I attended the NOC Marriage Retreat. The wisdom, encouragement, and empathy we experienced are still fueling our tanks six months later!”
– Hope Radebaugh, wife of Barclay Radebaugh, Men’s Head Basketball Coach, Charleston Southern University

Season of Change / Transition
WE STAND WITH YOU
during the tough seasons of life
in college athletics today is very short.”
There are weeks spent on the road, long nights away from your kids, early morning meetings. Everyone wants a piece of you when you’re the coach, and it’s hard to keep giving.
There’s the pressure of expectation; the pressure to discipline and mold young men, and to be a role model and ambassador for your school. And then there’s the pressure to keep winning!
That’s why Nations of Coaches stands with you in the toughest times, giving you support during job transitions, financial troubles, health problems, and family breakdowns. If you want a helping hand with complete confidentiality, just say the word using the form below.
