Letters to the Editor

"Freestyle/Greco Club Startup Info"

Bill,

My name is Ted Sierer. I am a wrestling coach at Highland High School.  I used to be the head coach at Brighton High School. I would like to start up a freestyle/Greco club here at Highland, but I am a little unsure about what I need to do. While I was at Brighton, I never had to worry about it since Jed Jones took care of most of that.

Would you please let me know what I need to do to get a club started here so we can begin competing this spring.

Thanks, Ted Sierer

Editor's Response

The club will need to be chartered with USA Wrestling. There is a new system to do that online, but I am unsure how (I still need to do that myself). For that information, contact the Membership Chair, Dawn Malan. Her e-mail address is dmmalan@comcast.net.

In terms of scheduling, the tournament schedule is on UtahWrestling.org. These tournaments (unless otherwise noted) are sanctioned through USA Wrestling, so they require a USA Wrestling Card for the coaches and for each wrestler. The cost this year is $35 and can also be received online. (Click here for more information and here to apply.)

At tournaments, if you help provide referees (preferably certified) and/or pairers (again, preferable certified), then you will be eligible to receive rebates from the tournament in exchange for that help. The state has scheduled three referee/pairer clinics this year, also noted on the Freestyle/Greco-Roman schedule.

This year, the Board voted unanimously to open up the Greco-Roman tournaments to all ages again (like it used to be). So I heartily encourage you to bring your wrestlers of all ages to the Greco-Roman tournaments on Friday nights.

Other than that, I would be happy to answer specific questions, if you have them.

I forgot to ask you one other thing ... do you know when/where any classes are being taught for coaches to get their Bronze level certification?

I don't know the answer to that one, but Brock Moore (state coach trainer) would.
