Dear Coach,
We hope that you will accept this invitation to come to The Ohio State University for the annual WRESTLING COACHES’ CLINIC.

This year, Kerry McCoy (2002 World Team Member, 2X NCAA Champion, and Assistant Coach at Lehigh University) and Jim Humphrey (Former Head Coach: Indiana University, 1977 World Freestyle Silver Medallist, and 1988 Head Olympic Freestyle Coach) will be our featured clinicians. Along with the Clinic, this is a site to certify for the State Rules Interpretation Meeting. The meeting will be held on Friday at 8:30-9:30 AM.

We are pleased to once again be hosting the largest high school and junior high school wrestling coaches’ clinic in the country. The success Ohio Wrestlers have at all levels is a reflection of the commitment and hard work you put into your individual programs!

Hopefully, you can join us on October 10th and 11th, 2002. We are looking forward to another great clinic!
