  1. Coaches--Pendleton Heights will host the first NWCA Leadership Academy designed for high school and middle school coaches. This program is FREE to all NWCA members and will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday, May 12 at Pendleton Heights High School (enter West side of building). I have attached the flyer for the clinic which contains links to join NWCA and to register for the clinic. We will have pizza lunch available for $5 at clinic. Contact numbers are in the flyer if you have any questions. You might want to consider asking your AD to cover the NWCA membership as a clinic fee. Our presenter is Dave Crowell, the only Pennsylvania high school coach to win a state title at three different schools! Dave Cloud Indiana CEO Academy May 12 2018.docx
  2. Just checked with the NWCA. Our first six coaches have registered and received their pre-academy document package. Please get your registration done as soon as possible so you have time to get your evaluations done BEFORE you attend the academy on May 12 at PH. Dave
  3. Coach Randy Qualitza is looking for an assistant coach who would like to take over as head coach after a year in the program. Coach Q is a member of the IHSWCA Hall of Fame (Coach, Class of 1985) and the recipient of the Billy Thom Award (2013). Randy's letter is below. If you are interested, reply to Q by the e-mail at the end of the post. Dave Cloud Looking for an Assistant Wrestling Coach Want warm weather instead of the snow you had in March? An opportunity awaits a young coach who would like to work as an assistant coach for one year under Coach Randy Qualitza. The candidate would learn the system for one year and then take over as the head coach. Presently there is only one position open: TV Productions and other teaching assignment. Other positions will open at the end of the school year. It would be an advantage if the candidate were able to coach football as a JV coach. The school is in Hollywood, FL in Broward County, the South Broward Bulldogs. You can view the website on Facebook: South Broward High School Wrestling. If interested contact Coach Q directly: rq1943@yahoo.com
  4. Prayers for Jim Beeson -- long time IHSAA official

    Truly one of the most decent people I have had the pleasure to know in my time in Indiana High School Wrestling. Wishes for peace and reflection on a great life to Jim and his family from all of us in Arabian Wrestling. Dave Cloud
  5. I have posted a survey from NWCA executive director Mike Moyer on the High School Forum for Indiana Mat. Would you please take the time to respond to this survey so the NWCA has as much information as possible for some proposals they would like to put forward to help grow our sport. Thanks for all you do to support wrestling at ALL levels in Indiana. Dave Cloud NWCA rep for Indiana
  6. As the Indiana rep for the NWCA, I would like to ask for your help. I would like to have everyone in the wrestling community use the link below to take the survey. I have attached the message from Mike Moyer, executive director of the NWCA. Thank you for your help and please spread the word about this survey. I have also posted it on the Youth page for IndianaMat. Thanks! Dave SUBJECT LINE: Youth Sports Survey Your opinion is needed and appreciated. The National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) is asking for help from a broad range of groups in doing a comprehensive review of the state of wrestling and your input is needed. Over the next month the NWCA will collect the results and compile a report which will be published in mid-May. Below is the link to a survey that will not take more than 3 minutes to complete. Your participation will help improve the experience of thousands of kids considering the sport of wrestling in the future. Thank you and here is the link. https://kwiksurveys.com/s/8serhbVH Sincerely, Mike Moyer
  7. Every head wrestling coach in the state should have received a survey from the NFHS. Please get this done as soon as you can so your input can be considered. It only takes 8-10 minutes. Dave Cloud
  8. High School Wrestling Participation up

    That is great news. Congrats to the coaches who recruit kids to our great sport. Glad to see almost 1000 more boys 54 more girls becoming part of the wrestling family!
  9. Congrats to Coach Skinner and Mark Durham and everyone involved in the Southport Frosh/Soph tournament today! You guys did a great job and it was good to get our young wrestlers on the mat. Mr. Durham did a great job setting it up and adjusting along the way to balance the weight classes. PH will be back next year to defend our title. I encourage everyone to make this a part of your schedule for next year. It was a very good experience for our kids. Dave Cloud
  10. Southport Freshman/Sophomore Tournament

    Yes, it counts two matches like any other tournament.
  11. Triton Central Saturday

    think they just wanted to have varsity teams there. I don't think Warren or Perry's JV squads are back, either.
  12. Triton Central Saturday

    PH is not going to be there. We sent our JVs last year and they did well but we were told they didn't want us back. Dave Cloud
  13. Congrats from Arabian Wrestling to Carter and the Greenfield Central Coaching staff. Great job getting him to that level!
  14. Football vs Wrestling....risk/reward

    I understand the anxiety you feel about your son participating in a collision sport like football. About a third of my wrestling team plays football. All season long I am like a worried mother for every game. BUT, we have to always remind ourselves that no matter how much time and effort we put into these kids, we don't own them or their non-wrestling time. Some of Indiana's best wrestlers from out state (David Palmer, David Locke, Randall Hayes at Delta; Spero Karas, Joel Stubblefield, Ben McKenney, Donny Sands at PH to name two schools) played football. But like Danny Struck and others have argued, if we want football coaches to encourage their players to wrestle we need to be willing to make it a two-way street and encourage our wrestlers to play if that is what they want to do. And yes, I have lost my share of wrestlers during the football season. It IS heartbreaking and very hard to take and my selfish instincts tell me to influence the kids to save themselves for wrestling but is the right thing to do for the kids? By the way, thinking this doesn't make a you a bad person, just a concerned parent, coach or both. Dave Cloud
  15. Congratulations, Mason. All of Indiana is proud of you! Dave Cloud Arabian Wrestling
  16. Looking for Jim Ledbetter!

    As always, you can count on the wrestling community to help out. A board user reached out to me with an e-mail for Jim Thanks to everyone who looked at the post! dave
  17. Can anyone help me get in contact with Jim Ledbetter? The number I have for him has been disconnected. Please contact me at: dcloud@smcsc.com Thanks! Dave
  18. Coyte Cooper TEDx Talk

    Dr. Coyte Cooper, former IU wrestler, speaks about dealing with setbacks and how we can use them to make ourselves stronger and our lives better. If you are not uplifted and excited to improve your life after listening to Coyte speak you are quite possibly dead! I have seen him at NWCA Convention several times and always enjoy his presentation. Also, a very personable guy who has worked hard to promote wrestling with his Best of Brand contests. The link to the talk is below.
  19. We would like to get in a couple of events from December 13-15 or 19-22 with our JV kids. Should be a competitive squad and would be willing entering them in a varsity event. We did this last year and finished third behind only Perry and Warren's JV's at a varsity Super Six. Please e-mail me at: dcloud@smcsc.com if you have anything. Would be willing to consider wrestling against varsity if you need another team Thanks, Dave
