Welcome to NOC Wives! 

We, as Nations of Coaches, are passionate about serving, connecting and equipping you as a coach’s wife. We believe you have a unique calling as “Mrs. Coach” and God has empowered you to be a woman of great influence for His glory! We want to join you right where you are, providing you with a safe space to feel seen, loved and treasured. 

NOC Wives is based on the verse from Proverbs 27:17, “Iron sharpens iron, so one {wo}man sharpens another”. The power of sisterhood is found when we come together in our commonality of being coaches’ wives, as well as daughters of God, to share our joys, trials and triumphs. We want to be women who encourage one another, pray for one another, seek truth from God’s Word with one another and simply love one another, all for God’s glory.

We invite you to be a part of NOC Wives by participating in several opportunities:

We exist to be here for you! Our desire is to come alongside you as you walk out this amazing calling of being a coach’s wife.

Order Your NOC Wives Cookbooks

Time around the table – particularly the “table” that brings us together during a seven month basketball season – is without question, unique! That is why NOC Wives designed a cookbook mindfully arranged by coaches’ wives for coaches’ wives. Our goal, through intentional recipe screening, accompanied with devotions in each section, is to provide great food choices for large and small crowds alike. These choices promote a common theme of connection for any and all who find themselves doing life around a basketball table.

You can now order an NOC Wives Cookbook (or multiple!) and receive it in time for the holidays or to give as a Christmas gift! A percentage of all sales will be used to bless coaching families who are in financial need or crisis.

Join our online NOC Wives Bible Study happening October 2021 – March 2022!

(Meetings are first and third weeks of the month)

You are invited to connect virtually with coaches’ wives from across the country while studying God’s Word. The NOC Wives Bible Study small groups create a safe space for you to share the common joys, triumphs, and struggles of being a coaches’ wife. As we each have powerful and unique experiences, there is something special that happens when we come together to encourage one another as women, in our marriages, and through God’s Word. 

For the October 2021- March 2022 Session, groups are meeting via Zoom on the first and third week of each month and going through the devotional book Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence. When you register, you can choose the group with the day and time that works best for you.

Canopy is a relaxing retreat created just for you, the coach’s wife, to receive encouragement and connect in community. It is a time to rest and renew your mind so you are equipped for the season ahead. Our goal is for you to walk away from the retreat covered and empowered to live out the incredible calling God has given you as a coach’s wife and so much more.

“For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent (canopy); he will lift me high upon a rock.” Psalm 27:5
