Coaches Wives - Behind the Bench

Mrs. Mayle Pujol to Keynote Behind the Bench Luncheon

Mrs. Mayle Pujol is the wife of Coach Tony Pujol, UNA Head Basketball Coach. She is the guest speaker at our March 19, 2019 Behind the Bench Luncheon at Java Jaay's Cafe, 1713 6th Avenue, SE, Decatur, Alabama.

She will share her testimony and encourage those in attending.  Here is a part of her was a normal hot, Miami day in 2003 until my husband and I exchanged news.

You go first, I said! “No, you go ahead,” he said!  And needless to say this went on for a couple of minutes along with nervous laughter and fear of the unknown, which had all settled deep in my gut. Finally I yelled, I’m pregnant!!! To which he responded with so much excitement in his voice, “I got the assistant men’s basketball position at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina.” Did you hear me say I’M PREGNANT and WHAT, WHERE??? YOU DID IT!!! A moment that changed our lives forever....

The rest is our story of peaks and valleys. We couldn’t have done this alone, it truly takes a village, faith and courage. My name is Mayle. Proud wife of Anthony Pujol, Head Men’s Basketball Coach at The University of North Alabama. Mom to three amazing, resilient, smart, beautiful young ladies. Together with our fur babies and hedgehog, we make Pujol Party of 8 during our travels.

     Behind the Bench is a ministry designed to encourage and inspire coaches' wives by helping them grow spiritually and providing them with a sense of community. FCA understands that a coach's wife stands in the background (Behind the Bench) while juggling all the demands of raising a family, maintaining a marriage, working, and being in the public eye while the coach gives tirelessly and sacrificially to help young athletes reach their full potential.     

     Since 1954, the Lord has been impacting lives across the nation and internationally through FCA. Our philosophy is to minister “to and through the coach”. The “4 C’s” of FCA are coaches, camps, community and campuses. Camps are opportunities for impact, the community and campuses are the places of influence. In the middle of it all is the coach and his wife.

    In our communities, so many wives are teachers on the campuses, active in the community, plus they are the heart of the home in and out of season. We desire for every wife, no matter what sport(s) her husband coaches, or what school or community they are part of, to experience God’s love and know Him more through this ministry. We want every coach’s wife to have the opportunity to study God’s word, learn from other wives, and grow in the calling God has given her as a wife, mother and in her vocation.

Coaches Wives  
Behind the Bench Luncheons  

In December 2017, we kicked-off our Behind the Bench Ministry to serve our Coaches Wives. We've enjoyed guest speakers Mrs. Myra Carter, wife to Coach Steve Carter; and Mrs. Charlotte Allen, wife to former Coach Ricky Allen. It’s an honor to serve our Coaches Wives and we desire this ministry to grow and be an encouragement to our ladies.
