SCACA Coaches Hall of Fame

Induction into the SCACA Hall of Fame is an enduring expression of appreciation and gratitude for decades of coaching excellence.

On December 18, 1992, the Board of Directors of the South Carolina Coaches Association voted to establish the SCACA Coaches Hall of Fame. The first inductees were enshrined in 1993 at the First Annual Awards Banquet.

The purpose of the SCACA Coaches Hall of Fame is to try in some way to express to the coaches of South Carolina the appreciation we the members have for them and to express our thanks for their many contributions to high school athletics in South Carolina.

Each year selection to the SCACA Coaches Hall of Fame will rest with the Hall of Fame Selection Committee, made up of all Past Presidents and chaired by the First Vice President. Selections will be based on a set of criteria which includes the following:

  1. SCACA membership for a minimum of 20 years, unless coaching years are prior to 1965
  2. Integrity
  3. Character, behavior, leadership
  4. Accomplishments (have an overall winning record)
  5. Twenty (20) years as a head coach or athletic director in SC (combination of years can not be counted.)
  6. United States citizenship
  7. Professional, community/civic, church contributions
  8. National and state awards

Annual nominations may be made by any SCACA member or former member, school administrator, teacher or athlete in South Carolina.

Do you know a coach who deserves to be honored in the SCACA Hall of Fame?

You can nominate them for our next round of induction. Complete this form and send it to us by February 1.
