Student-Wrestler Leadership Course

Overview: The NWCA, through a partnership with nationally renowned professor Dr. Tom Kane, has developed an innovative, online leader training course uniquely designed for student-wrestlers at the junior high and high school level.  This course takes about 2 hours to complete and would be an ideal “pre-requisite” for any student-wrestler who wants to be a team captain. Too often, we ask young people to be team captains without providing them with any formal leadership training. 

How many times have you ever heard a coach say, “I have the most talented team ever but I have not leadership”? More often than not, the coach doesn’t have any leaders because he/she has never provided formal leadership training. This online program is designed to help student-wrestlers learn the following leadership principles:

  • The nature of what team leadership really is.
  • How to earn the respect that anchors quality leadership.
  • General actions that exceptional leaders take.
  • How to build the confidence and morale of teammates.
  • How to reinforce a "team first" attitude.
  • When to intervene or take action as a leader.
  • What to do when serious team issues arise.

Cost: The cost for the student-wrestler course is $99/team or $19.95 for an individual wrestler. The course can be accessed 24/7 over the internet from the convenience of a home computer.
