Minch - IHSWCA Consultant Re: IHSWCA Information Date: September 17, 2015 Welcome to the 2015-16 wrestling season. Well the technology dinosaur (yours truly) is finally trying to become update to this era. Hopefully this information is posted in enough areas that all Indiana head wrestling coaches receives this information. If not, I apologize up front! For you convenience, all IHSWCA Forms can be located on the website (www.ihswca.org) Jake Harreld – former head coach at Fishers HS is gracious enough to continue to manage our website. While the IHSWCA cannot take your payment electronically “YET”, I’m working on it, You can preregister for the clinic by emailing me at (jsaminch123@sbcglobal.net). Either use the attached form or just state your name & your other coaches name and say “SAME INFO AS LAST YEAR” & then bring payment to the clinic. This year’s clinic features three individuals with Indiana ties. Angel Escobedo, Reece Humphrey, and Coyte Cooper. Angel (4X State Champ – NCAA Champ) & Reece (3X State Champ – NCAA All-American & World Team member) are both Indiana high school products. Coyte was an NCAA All-American at IU. This should be a great clinic! Please see attached 2015 Fall Clinic Flier. We will once again offer the IHSAA Rules Interpretation Meeting at the clinic. It is scheduled for Thursday evening @ 6:30 pm at Warren Central HS our clinic site. So even if you cannot attend the clinic, you can make the rules meeting and then attend the coaches social afterwards at our host hotel the Clarion East – formerly the Ramada Inn. Tyson Skinner – Madison Consolidated HS will be taking over for the 2015-16 & 2016-17 school years as our President and Greg Ratliff – Edgewood HS was voted in as Vice President along with Sam Riesen - Churubusco HS as Secretary at last Spring Clinic’s business meeting.

I hope to see all of you at the fall clinic. While there are many clinics being offered this fall in several areas of the state, the IHSWCA is the only clinic exclusively for coaches.

    First of all: My apologies for not posting the Acad. AS teams sooner. As explained earlier, my computer died last week and I was unable to acquire a new one until Thursday. Then I was very preoccupied conducting the IHSAA State Tournament. I did get all the certificates printed with minimal errors. If the certificates were not picked up at the state meet, they will be mailed to coaches TODAY. Again, please excuse my tardiness. JD Minch - IHSWCA Ex. Director / IHSAA State Tournament Director / Retired Coach of North Montgomery HS

  21. The message below in quotes comes from John Licata, who is the NWCA Coaches Coordinator. I think that Indiana HS Coaches have made a great effort to improve in this area over the last ten years, but we definitely need to maintain the improvement. I agree - ties are not always required, but WE most definitely need to stay away from wearing jeans, caps, etc.. as you will read, to any high profile meet. I'm not taking shots at anybody - just want you all to know what the media and our fan base is seeing and wandering about. JD "I am in receipt of some constructive criticism that resulted from our NWCA National Dual Tourney hosted this past weekend in Iowa. This will be addressed to all the Collegiate Coaches that are involved in the NWCA Leadership Academy. I am including all the State Leaders and State Reps, as all of us can have a positive impact at our schools in our states. The concerns that were expressed are as follows: Coaches in the corners wearing Jeans. Ball caps worn by coaches. Coaches poorly groomed. Coaches spitting dip into paper cups. Wrestlers littering through out the arena. Wrestlers using profane language. I have no doubt that these were the actions of very few and some what isolated.. That being true, non the less, I wanted to raise the awareness. Additionally, being a leader by example may not be enough? Addressing the situation in a professional manner while it occurs may not be comfortable for some, but still useful. Lets hold each other accountable and not accept anything less. We recognize that a coach may not want to wear a suit and tie for the long day and due to nature of our sport's physicality. However we can sure dress in a professional manner. At the Duals we had more media than any event other than the Olympics and Nationals. We must portray our sport in a better fashion to be accepted by the mainstream media. The product you allow is a direct reflection on you as the coach and your institution. It is also a reflection on all coaches and the NWCA. We should do better!! John Licata John Licata Coaching Coordinator"
