Coaches, Wrestlers and Parents,
College Women's wrestling is exploding. In the next few years we may see as many women's programs as men's programs in college.
College programs and organizations like the National Wrestling Coaches Association are compiling lists using the OPC, the weight management system, that most states are using. Since Alaska does not use this Alaska USA Wrestling is attempting to help our female high school wrestlers with the recruiting process by compiling our own data and sharing it with college programs.
This form is for junior and senior wrestlers. It can be filled in by the wrestler, their coach or their parent. Please share this with all wrestler and parents in Alaska.

|SafeSport Training Required for USA Wrestling Members|
As part of USA Wrestling’s ongoing efforts to educate our members, all Wrestling Leader members of USA Wrestling must complete SafeSport training during the 2019-20 membership season. You purchased a two year membership during the 2018-19 season, meaning that you completed SafeSport training during or before the 2018-19 membership season. Safe Sport training is now required annually by the US Center for SafeSport and the US Olympic & Paralympic Committee. As such, a "refresher" course is now available online for you to complete. For those who completed SafeSport training before the 2018-19 membership season the full-length SafeSport course will be required.
SafeSport training is now built into USA Wrestling’s membership system, so you will be able to access the training by logging into your account at www.usawmembership.com. If you have questions on how to access the training, help can be found at https://www.usawmembership.com/help/category/3/question/11 or by contacting USA Wrestling at 719.598.8181.
We appreciate your continued support of USA Wrestling and your efforts to ensure a safe environment for all participants.
AUSAW is requiring that athletes who will also be coaching or officiating obtain a Wrestling Leader Membership as well as the athlete membership.
AUSAW is NOT accepting Event Volunteer for coaching or officiating.
All Coaches, Pairing Officials & Mat Officials MUST have a current Wrestling Leader Membership.
