Iowa Football Coaches Association


The Iowa Football Coaches Association is dedicated to making high school football in Iowa the best in the nation. The IFCA is a dedicated group of coaches from schools across all communities in Iowa, big and small. We boast an outstanding membership rate among football playing schools in our state. Our awards program recognizes coaches, student-athletes, cheerleaders, and those who support the game from the sidelines to the training rooms to the press box. We take great pride in the quality of the game regardless the size of the school. We hope you enjoy visiting our site.
