UWW’s Education Program and the Mexican Olympic Sports Center (CDOM) welcomed 40 participants from all over Mexico for a Level I Coaches Course from March 5-9. The course was made possible through the support of the Mexican Olympic Committee, Olympic Solidarity, and the Mexican Wrestling National Federation.
The purpose of the four-day course was to provide coaches with tools to strengthen their professional work. The course consisted of several theoretical and practical sessions that were structured to be transferrable from the classroom to the mat.
The opening ceremony was held at the Presidency Auditorium of the Mexican Olympic Committee and was attended by distinguished personalities such as Maria José ALCALÁ IZGUERRA, President of the NOC, Guillermo DÍAZ GUTIÉRREZ, President of the Mexican Wrestling Federation and Daniel ACEVES VILLAGRÁN, Vice-President of NOC.
The Olympic Wrestling Gymnasium was inaugurated as part of the event, a space designed to house the national teams and the Olympic Wrestling initiation school.
In April, wrestlers from all over the continent will train at these new facilities for the Pre-Pan-American Championship Training Camp.
