Wisconsin National Team Coach Alisha Howk at Fargo, 2021.
The Wisconsin Wrestling Federation requires all coaches working with its youth membership, whether in the practice room or at tournaments, to hold a current USA Wrestling Leader Card. Furthermore, the WWF urges all youth and high school coaches to participate in USA Wrestling's coaching certification series (Copper, Bronze, Silver and Gold) to enhance their development and provide a better foundation for training athletes in the areas of technique, match tactics, nutrition, strength and cardiovascular training, and wrestling philosophy. We also suggest that coaches utilize the USA Wrestling Core Curriculum Series, an expansive and detailed resource for freestyle, Greco-Roman, and folkstyle coaches. If you are interested in coaching with Team Wisconsin please submit the application form below to Scott Kluever.

The law requires all youth athletic organizations to educate coaches, athletes and parents on the risks of concussions and head injuries and prohibits participation in a youth activity until the athlete and parent or guardian has returned a signed agreement sheet indicating they have reviewed the concussion and head injury informational materials. The law requires immediate removal of an individual from a youth athletic activity if symptoms indicate a possible concussion has been sustained. A person, who has been removed from a youth athletic activity because of a determined or suspected concussion or head injury, may not participate again until he or she is evaluated by a health care provider and receives written clearance from the health care provider to return to the activity.
The Wisconsin Wrestling Federation is providing the following links for your resource to complete the requirements of the law. Reminder that all parents, athletes and coaches must complete the education, understand and acknowledge this understanding prior to competition. Clubs should keep record of those completing the requirement for the year.
