UWW Technical Courses for Coaches
- Introduction & Outline -

Introduction Coach Pathway
The Development Department’s goal is to help National Federations further the development of wrestling within their country. While wrestling has many different areas of focus, one of the most important is the role of the coach. Coaches directly work with athletes and their job can have a profound impact.
A coach’s role is to help develop the athlete to be the best that they can be and to be successful on and off the mat. As a result, the Development team has created coaching courses to better help prepare coaches. These courses are not a part of a coaching licensing program for UWW. Only a certificate of completion will be issued to coaches that successfully complete the course.
To equip coaches with the skills and knowledge to improve their competency as a coach. This will be done through courses that provide interactive learning. All courses will be coach-centred where all coaches will practice their skills directly and then allow them to discus, share, evaluate and reflect.
