Dear USA Wrestling Coaches, USA Wrestling through the United States Olympic Committee is committed to offering the 2003 Spring Coaches' Seminar. All states were invited to send at least one participant to attend the weekend's activities. Not all states were able to have a coach attend the seminar; therefore, USA Wrestling's National Teams staff has opened the remaining slots to coach members. If you feel that you can attend the Seminar and arrange your own transportation, USA Wrestling would like you to be invovled. Coaches will be housed at the Olympic Training Center and receive meals at the Athlete Center. Participants will benefit from the excellent sessions ranging from technique to mental skills. Please contact Dave Bennett, Developmental Freestyle Coach at 719-598-8181 ext. 601 to reserve your spot in this clinic. (Further information contained below.)

Seminars will focus on freestyle and Greco-Roman, with an emphasis on strategies, mental skills, weight training and technique.

In addition, coaches will participate in a session dedicated to video review and will attend USOTC resident program practice sessions. Attendees of the 2003 Spring Coaches Seminar will be provided complimentary room and board at the Olympic Training Center from March 13-16, 2003. Attendees must simply provide their own transportation to and from Colorado Springs. Each coach will also receive a polo shirt as a souvenir from the seminar.
