  4. ISWA, IHSWCA, Coaches, AD's, and Central Regional Leaders, Hey all! I know things are tough now, but in all fields, education is what improves us! The more educated we are, the better we are. We owe it to our kids, and wrestlers to be the "best versions of ourselves that we can be!" Congratulations Indiana! Super proud to be a part of a state that wants to learn. During COVID, USAW made their Bronze and Copper certifications FREE! (they still are free at themat.com ). Currently Indiana LEADS THE COUNTRY with 270 Certifications during COVID with the next most in any state being 180. This says alot about yourself, our state, your staffs, and clubs. I want to share with you four upcoming learning opportunities that I will be taking part in. I challenge you to take part in 1..2... or all four!!! The crazy part is, I have been a part of all four of these events before, and I make sure I attend them as often as possible. I hope you will take a look, and do the same! They will surely improve the way you coach and teach! First item: UNITED WORLD WRESTLING - ACADEMY AND COACHING CERTIFICATION Years ago I got to get my UWW Certifications in Greco Roman Wrestling. You used to have to fly to a destination to work with the worlds best. But now, the worlds best have come together to make this certification available online! After more than a year of development United World Wrestling has launched its innovative online academy for assisting wrestlers, coaches, referees, and administrators with programs aimed at education, certification and career advancement. The first version of the site includes the Online Rule Test, the Ready to Wrestle Program, the Introduction to Coaching course and the Level 1 Coaches Course. Coaches interested in anti-doping instruction can also access WADA’s "Coach True" program."The launch of UWW’s Academy has taken incredible energy and I think that right now is the perfect time to introduce it to our community," said United World Wrestling’s President Nenad Lalovic. "The IT and Development departments have created this online resource to assist with remote learning and as an opportunity in the middle of this unprecedented pandemic for coaches and referees to complete additional certifications."In addition to the programs listed above, the Academy’s site will also offer informative lessons including the Wrestle4Fun program, scientific journals, and videos covering techniques and strength and conditioning exercises. This link will allow you to set up your UWW Academy Personal Account. Please click the following link to the United World Wrestling Academy: https://academy.unitedworldwrestling.org/ Second Item: NWCA Virtual Convention - July 20-31, 2021 I attend this convention most years, and get so much out of it!!! I believe you will too! Take a look at the speakers. It really is an amazing lineup. Know that it is $99 dollars, but $25 of that will be donated back to the IHSWCA. Personally I am speaking on 7/30 at 11am, love to have you on with me talking about recruiting and retention of athletes! To see a lineup of speakers and schedule, and to register: http://www.nwcaonline.com/2020-nwca-convention-schedule/ Third and Forth Items: Currently there are two awesome In person educational, in person, clinics in the works: ISWA Annual Meeting and NEWLY FORMED, Program Development Clinic September 13 -Gary Mayabb - Greco Coach from the Olympic Training Center will be one of our speakers!

  6. Checking for interested teams- the NWCA (National wresrling coaches association) hosts the NWCA National duals on January 8th/9th, 2021. This has the top D2, D3, Naia, Juco, NCWA, and Women’s teams competing for a nationals dual meet title! Many of our former Indiana Hs wrestlers now competing in college will be wrestling there. Last years info: http://www.nwcaonline.com/news-events/events/2020-nwca-multi-division-national-duals/ This is held in the louisville fairground convention center and freedom hall (current concert venue and former home of louisville cardinal basketball)- big stadium! The NWCA has asked me to put together teams primarily from Indiana and Kentucky as a “border war” for a tourney. but after discussion we want this to be open to any team within our travel sanctions. i am looking for teams that might be interested to wrestle our dual meet tourney along side these college teams! teams invited: formulating that now format: a lot depends on the number of teams we get and who there you want to see! But ultimately we are looking to have 2-3 matches on Friday night and 5 on Saturday. interested teams email coach struck dstruck@gccschools.com more questions? Text me at 8127862308 (I realize this is state duals weekend many years, we hope to be able to accommodate teams each year that want to go in and out of these two tourneys as well)
  7. Dear Coach, and Indiana Wrestling Leaders: (email sent to all IHSWCA Coaches Membership, and ISWA Members in our Coaches Application pool) Hope your all staying safe!! I know your like me. You are at home, doing work you never did as you were always coaching, watching series you never would have watched, hopefully reading and working out more than you normally have had chances to do, and just wondering when the heck you will get to get on the mats again!! While I can't tell you exactly when that will happen. I can tell you what information I have, and what things we can be doing at home to better ourselves as coaches and wrestling leaders. I actually type this email while on a ZOOM meeting with USA Wrestling, and the latest date to target, and re-evaluate the state of the virus is May 10th as an aspirational date - not a hard date, but an aspiration. While I can not predict 30 or 45 days out, this is just an aspirational date, and things can change daily. As far as local clubs and such - please pay attention to the rules your state, local and school governments set forth to you! SUPPORT WRESTLING! I know some of you out there are wondering if you will get refunds, and such on wrestling items with USAW. Well, I'd say probably. But, think about what your asking for a refund on first. If you can let you money go - remember your just supporting wrestling!!!! Wrestling businesses, ISWA and USAW revenue is going to be down as well. If you can keep supporting, buying your cards, and all those things.... i know I will be grateful that you choose to support wrestling. Make sure you are following the ISWA Twitter and Instagram accounts. Daily "at home" wrestling drills are being shown. Its some great stuff!! Please repost it to your teams and clubs. If you have anything wrestling specific to post, and share - send the drill with a caption, and the tags to 812-786-2308 I want to share with you some other information below: A) A message from the USAW National Coaches Council. B ) National Wrestling Coaches Association Scholastic CEO Leadership Academy - It has been a good way for coaches to gain professional development, CEU's and other requirements schools have asked for teachers/coaches to complete. The certificate is also something you would like to hang in a frame on your office wall. C) USA Wrestling makes online National Coaches Education Program courses free to members until April 5th, 2020= Lets have Indiana be leaders in Copper and Bronze cards! They are free right now - challenge your club members to get their Bronze or Copper card for free!!! When the virus subsides, have them ready to coach!

D ) Official Statement on the 2020 Olympics - moved to 2021 E ) Officiating courses available for free through July 1 on the NFHS Learning Center Hope everyone is managing through this tough coronavirus time… We are thinking about you and your families! Danny Struck ISWA State Coach IHSWCA Vice-President IHSWCA Regional Rep USAW National Coaches Council @danny_struck IG and Twitter A) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- A message from the USAW National Coaches Council. The USAW National Coaches Council represents the second largest demographic in the country.. the coaches. Yet within that coaching demographic is the parent, the wrestling apparel vendor, the tournament director and many others. These are undoubtedly difficult times for many members of our wrestling community. Yet, while difficult, we do know the resilience and fortitude of our wrestling community will sustain our passion for the worlds oldest and greatest sport during this period of delay. Since time immemorial, our sport has been blessed with weekly tournaments, an abundance of wrestling apparel, educated active coaches, gymnasiums/clubs to practice and an infrastructure which allowed all this to thrive. We will return to practice before you know it. We will be competing and reunited with our coaches when the time is right, the coaches who are always there for you win or lose, every weekend. We want to encourage everyone to be safe, but also be confident in the timely return of wrestling, the day when wrestling roars back into our lives and communities. That optimism can be contagious, spread it! Take a leap of faith, bet on wrestling, be part of the return! Yours in wrestling, The USA wrestling National Coaches Council B )------------------------------------------------------------------------ FROM THE NWCA: - FREE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSES!!!! I hope you are doing well and what we all need to do to beat this COVID-19 Virus. I want to encourage you to take the time to complete the online modules as a part of the National Wrestling Coaches Association Scholastic CEO Leadership Academy. Either you have registered for a past Scholastic CEO Leadership Academy or are registered for one of this years SLA's. If you have not completed the online modules there is no better time than now. I think we all have some free time on our hands and this is a good way to help progress with the growth of wrestling. If you have registered for an upcoming SLA that has been postponed until this Fall it will be a good time to go ahead and complete the modules now. If you have completed the online modules and the Leadership Academy without receiving your certificate of completion email me and I will make sure we get this to you. It has been a good way for coaches to gain professional development, CEU's and other requirements schools have asked for teachers/coaches to complete.

  10. Wrestlers and Coaches- will be considered eligible for selection to the HOF anytime they meeting the requirements in section A, B, C, D, E, but this in no terms means that he/she automatically is in the HOF. There is no limitation on the number of times individuals/groups may be brought before the selection committee, as long as they meet the requirements. All though the HOF selection committee cannot legislate sound moral character or outstanding citizenship, these qualities will never-the-less be considered for each candidate. Other outstanding contributions with wrestling and towards the advancement of wrestling will be considered. The HOF banquet is held each year the day after the IHSAA State Finals. Normally our selection meeting is late May. Link to nominate: https://ihswca.org/history/hall-of-fame/nomination/ Link to Hall of Fame archives: https://ihswca.org/history/hall-of-fame/
  11. 2019 INT- RTC SCHEDULE/LOCATIONS (Schoolboy-Juniors) Mission Statement: INT-RTCs unify the Indiana wrestling community under one goal to advance the sport across the state INT- RTC 2020 primarily in Olympic Styles of wrestling. The intention of an INT- RTC practice is NOT to be a club practice, rather to be a site for potential ISWA National Team members, coaches and hopefuls to come together and train in Olympic Styles. The purpose of the ISWA INT-RTC’s are to allow individuals to achieve their full human and athletic potential. The INT-RTCs provide ISWA National Team hopefuls access to national team and silver level coaches. INT-RTCs should mirror ISWA and USA Wrestling’s mission, vision, and values. A key focus is to raise the relevance of Olympic Style wrestling in Indiana. Within IHSAA rules, INT-RTCs provide additional opportunities for Indiana National Team Coaches to further develop and enhance their individual programs, while helping the surrounding area clubs and schools. This cooperative effort strengthens the connection between the Olympic Movement and high school athletics. An INT - RTC will not tolerate any site, or visitor talking “recruitment”. This should be a pressure free, Olympic spirited, environment. (Recruiting kids to our national teams should be a daily occurrence though!) Each INT- RTC will have a weekly 20-30 minute focus written by a Indiana National Team Staff member so that every site every week, no matter where they are, they have a unity and common vocabulary to them. If there is more than one INT-RTC in the area each night of the week - all of them should start with this common practice plan. The intention is to get as many “paired” sites working together to get more kids training together and not just working one site, one style - rather visiting others and spreading the talent.
