The National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) is a recognized leader in helping student-athletes maximize their performance through the use of proven weight control/sport nutrition practices. In fact, over 240,000 middle school, high school, and college student-wrestlers use the NWCA Optimal Performance Calculator (OPC) powered by Trackwrestling annually to establish an ideal competition weight. In addition, over 7,000 coaches and 8,000 athletic trainers participate in the program each year.
The OPC is regarded as the gold standard tool for helping coaches, athletic trainers, and wrestlers administrate the nationally mandated wrestling weight certification program. The OPC is web-based and provides significant automated features which significantly reduces administrative workload for coaches and athletic trainers. All wrestlers can enjoy the integrated sport nutrition program so they have a practical way to achieve their optimal competition weight class.
The NWCA has developed a partnership with MySportsDietitian to develop a customized sports nutrition program based off the wrestler’s assessment data free for each team.
Each school in the OPC system can set up a free user account for 45 free athlete user accounts. To get started, please complete the registration link at:
