Coaching Development

Why you need to attend the convention.

Wrestling needs you now more than ever! Please join some of our most successful high school and college wrestling coaches from across America at the 2009 National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) Convention scheduled for August 6-9 at the beautiful ocean front Bahia Mar Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Everything is designed to help you strengthen your wrestling program and/or grow wrestling in your area. This experience will provide you with the following:

  • An opportunity to learn practical and systematic approaches to promote positive growth of individual wrestlers and wrestling programs.
  • Learn how to respond to the challenges facing wrestling (increasing number of forfeits, unreasonable parents, funding challenges, etc.).
  • Organizational skills to help you promote and market wrestling in your area.
  • Learn to develop a system of teaching for all grade levels that enhances the improvement of the specialist and the multisport athlete.
  • Develop a leadership mindset to enable you to create a positive team culture.
  • Provides an opportunity to share ideas, problems, and goals with college coaches in order to establish a better bridge between the NCAA and the high school athlete.

In this intense 2-day period, you should be able to assess your present situation and lay plans for 2009-2010. Just like we tell our athletes, “Success Never Rests.” I would strongly encourage you to bring your whole staff, from youth through high school. Spending this 2-day period together will help to get everyone on the same page.
