Re: Alaska USA Wrestling
Wow what a fantastic start to the 2015 Alaska USA Wrestling Season, clubs have more wrestling opportunities than ever for the 2015 season. Please check the WWW.ausaw.org for the current schedule of tournaments. Alaska Avalanche and Nikiski Freestyle wrestling clubs have each hosted a tournament and did a fantastic job hosting tournaments.
The first freestyle tournament AUSAW did experience some technical difficulties, but rest assured the volunteers at AUSAW are evaluating how to ensure future tournaments run smooth. I would like to thank the pairings officials for overcoming these challenges.
Alaska USA Wrestling has additional equipment to ensure we can smoothly run two tournaments a weekend. With dual tournaments in different regions of the state you will have more wrestling opportunities than ever before.
I would also like to remind Coaches and Team Leaders, any wrestler practicing with your club needs to be a current carded member of USA Wrestling and all coaches must be current carded coaches. This ensures your USAW insurance is in force. Also, coaches are required to be copper certified or higher to coach mat side at AUSAW events. This requirement was developed at the request of AUSAW members to ensure the safety and good sportsmanship at AUSAW events. The copper certification can be completed online at www.themat.com.
The schedule for the AUSAW state tournament will be available in the next couple of weeks at www.ausaw.org.
