“Our Scholastic Coach of the Year Awards Program which honors our nation’s coaches who work tirelessly on behalf of their athletes is one of my favorite NWCA initiatives. At a time when coaches are needed now more than ever, we get to take time and thank the entire profession by recognizing their peers at the state and national levels. Thanks to those who we call Coach,” Mike Moyer, NWCA Executive Director, said.

The National Wrestling Coaches Association, established in 1928, is a non-profit organization for the advancement of all levels of the sport of wrestling with a primary emphasis on developing coaches who work in academic environments.
