Mission Statement: INT-RTCs unify the Indiana wrestling community under one goal to advance the sport across the state INT - RTC 2024 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 an 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.
