NCWA CEO Leadership Academy Set for Sept. 29

The National Wrestling Coaches Association is bringing their CEO Leadership Academy to Asheville, North Carolina this fall.  Developed by Michigan State's Dr. Dan Gould and modeled after the NWCA's College CEO Academy, the Scholastic CEO Academy was created to help wrestling coaches in many critical areas such as:  fundraising, recruitment and retention of athletes, communication strategies, working effectively with parents, and leading as a transformational wrestling coach.  In addition to high quality professional development for coaches, this program is FREE of charge and completely funded by the NWCA and the US Marine Corps.  The Leadership Academy is also partnering with Eblen Charities, Headlock on Hunger, and the Asheville Wrestlers in Business Network to provide a host site and lunch for attendees.

The NWCA is recruiting 50 head, assistant, middle school, and high school North Carolina wrestling coaches to participate in the Academy which includes 3-4 hours of online modules and a 6 hour in-person workshop in Asheville on September 29.  The workshop will be led by a trained facilitator (typically a nationally known scholastic wrestling coach) and will also include onsite mentor coaches. 

‚óŹ   Participating coaches are required to do the following:

-     Before the Asheville workshop, and, at your convenience, complete a series of short online modules (approx. 4-6 hours). Coaching staffs can work together to complete this.  Content areas include: recruiting/retention, program development, the transformational coaching style, communicating effectively with parents, and program building.

-     Complete a 360 evaluation self-assessment.

-     Attend the 6-hour in person Asheville workshop led by an NWCA facilitator and veteran mentor coaches from North Carolina.  Lunch provided.
