There are two important changes this year at the Dave Schultz Memorial International (set for Colorado Springs, January 24-26) which everybody involved in the tournament must be aware of in advance and should be prepared for.

1. All coaches must get UWW Coaches License in advance

There is a new requirement for all UWW sanctioned competitions that coaches who participate at the events must have an annual UWW license. This must be secured through UWW’s Athena system in advance, similar to the license procedures for athletes and referees.

This must be secured in advance, not on-site at a competition. The cost is 100 Swiss Francs for each coach. The license covers medical expenses at competitions, and all coaches must agree to the UWW Code of Ethics and Conduct.

U.S. coaches must purchase this license through USA Wrestling.

IN ORDER TO PURCHASE LICENSE, COACHES WILL HAVE TO PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING:
1)UWW Coaches Declaration Form (Click Here)
2) Digital headshot
3) Copy of U.S. Passport (NO EXCEPTIONS)
4) Credit Card Information (Visa or Mastercard)

To purchase your license, contact Jaimie McNab at jmcnab@usawrestling.org.

FOR COACHES COMING TO THE DAVE SCHULTZ MEMORIAL, THE DEADLINE TO GET JAIMIE MCNAB ALL DOCUMENTS IS JANUARY 16TH

2. Athletes must make scratch weight at their morning weigh-in for their one-day tournament

The Dave Schultz Memorial International will be contested in the 10 World Championships weight classes in each style. WRESTLERS MUST MAKE SCRATCH WEIGHT for this competition.
