I would like to give a BIG THNANK YOU, to all of the Tournament Volunteers that stepped up and help make this year's tournament a success. Without all of you this tournament would not be a succes. I would also like to thank ILA and the Tournament Committee for their efforts as well. I know as always there are areas we would like to improve on but I think overall the tournament this year was a huge success.
Beginning September 1st, any member who wishes to purchase a coach's card must do so on-line at themat.com. Part of this process will be a background check. Upon completing and passing the background check, you will be able to print off your coaching card for the 2014 season. To view the complete USA Wrestling policy and procedure for the background check; click the document below.
Missouri USA Wrestling requires all coaches to be Bronze certified, to coach in the State Series and National Events. We will continue to offer the Bronze certification classes and they will be listed under the About/Coaches Coordinator tab as they are confirmed. The cost is $70 payable at the class, since all coaches are required to go on-line to purchase their actual card and go through the background screening.
Missouri USA Wrestling is allowing on-line registration through the USA Wrestling website, www.usawmembership.com. Coaches and wrestlers may renew their membership, or become first time members, through this website. All it takes is a credit card. There is a surcharge for this service. Clubs who wish to purchase their club charters, tournament sanctions, competitor's or coach's cards may also use www.usawmembership.com. You need a valid USAWID to log in and process the memberships. Just a reminder that Missouri USA Wrestling requires that any first time competitor's must first submit a birth certificate to our office before your membership will become valid; all Missouri coaches must be a minimum of Copper certified and any first time coach must submit proof of this certification before their membership will be valid as well.
