|NCEP Bronze level webinar to take place April 1-2|
By Meagan Templeton-Lynch USA Wrestling
A National Coaches Education Program Bronze level webinar will be hosted by NCEP Manager Cody Bickley, on Monday and Tuesday, April 1 and 2, from 6-8 p.m. (MDT).
This webinar will provide comprehensive coaching education for wrestling coaches committed to expanding their knowledge in the art and science of coaching wrestling.
USA Wrestling would like to invite volunteer, high school, collegiate and elite international coaches to participate. Coaches who aspire to be national team (all age groups) coaches as well as professional coaches who wish to continue their knowledge of the sports science, sports first aid, and wrestling technique and tactics are also encouraged to participate.
“The timing of this webinar will allow coaches to complete the course prior to the start of folkstyle nationals,” said Bickley. “This will help alleviate some of the responsibilities of coaches who are traveling into Iowa for the event.”
Combined with the subsequent Silver and Gold level certifications, coaches can vastly improve their knowledge and ability in this NCEP advanced program.
Copper level is not a pre-requisite for the Bronze; however, it may be valuable to those coaches that do not have an advanced formal coaching education.
The Bronze course consists of a four hour clinic, as well as a self study of the USA Wrestling Coach’s Guide to Excellence and a self study test.
The cost of the webinar is $75 and includes a book, participant’s packet, shirt or hat, certificate and bronze card. The deadline to register is April 1 at 4:00 p.m. MST.
Once you finalize your registration, allow 10-15 seconds to be redirected to the payment link.
In response to your registration, you will receive an email confirming your registration with information you need to join the webinar on April 1. Both nights of the webinar are mandatory if you wish to receive your certification.
