How many days until Pro Sports Wives Day?


Pro Sports Wives Day is an annual celebration held on 11 February. We wouldn't know how the wives of those professional sports figures are managing both their families and their husbands' careers at the same time. Of course, these women are real-life heroes, and they definitely need to be recognized for all the continued support they have for their athletic friend. It celebrates wives who are passionate about sports, their focus and her incredible work for both family and country.

History of Pro Sports Wives Day

How is there not a day that is always recognized for these pillars of grace and beauty? The first time of Pro Sports Wives Day was in 2006 and rightly has been repeated every year. With this date set aside, it is given the role of recognizing the annual honorees as well as all wives of active and retired sports professionals. Why do they need this you ask?

The wives of professional athletes don't just appear in a few events to look beautiful or appear on reality TV shows. Most wives do not seek notoriety for themselves but use their position in the community to make a difference. They help their husbands with founding funds and other organizations to bring comfort and social change in the communities in which they play.

Think about the teams you follow and I bet you haven't heard much about any of the players' wives but you probably know how that team reaches out to your community. Yep, you guessed it! While their husbands are out doing interesting plays and traveling around the country, their wives are trying to stay home - for the family and for the community.

Pro Sports Wives Day is to recognize the wives of current and retired professional sports players, coaches and executives. The wives of professional sportspeople often work behind the scenes to support teams, leagues and charities. They help their husbands set up foundations and other organizations to benefit the communities in which they live, and they raise funds and awareness for a variety of causes.

The Professional Wives Association, a group that works to bring together wives in all professional sports, created the dates and dates listed in Chase's Calendar of Events. Over the years, awards have been given to wives for things like mentorship, philanthropy, entrepreneurship and courage. Awards have also been given to female athletes who are also wives, such as former soccer star, Mia Hamm.

How to Celebrate Pro Sports Wives Day

It's amazing to know that almost 80% of professional athletes are divorced! It's easy to see why when you think about all the life has to entail. It takes a strong and special woman to take on the task of being a professional sports wife. To honor them, you can spend time researching your favorite player and find out why his wife won the championship. Perhaps you can give those causes a little of your time or financial support.

A marriage built in the shadow of a professional sports career is far from the norm. Women who can keep their marriages and families strong even though they are real heroines and deserve our respect and thanks. Next time you watch your favorite team and favorite player, take a moment to think about his behind-the-scenes life and help us honor Pro Sports Wives Day!
