After much thought and careful consideration, BC Wrestling has moved to conduct a core review of all of our performance programs.
BC Wrestling understands the past several weeks have been difficult for our high performance athletes, and for our incumbent coaches, however the board has a responsibility to be thorough in its evaluation process, and to make the best decision possible after taking into account all factors and reviewing the program delivery model.
Making a change to a program in any sport is one of the most difficult tasks for an organization, and the decision is never an easy one, however BC Wrestling believes it has an obligation to its athletes, to put them in the best position to achieve success while employing the most prudent expenditure of limited association resources.
At this time, BC Wrestling would like thank coach Dave McKay for his contribution to the wrestling community in British Columbia. Dave is a quality person and he handled that decision with the same class, professionalism and character that we've come to expect since he returned to the organization. We wish him well in all future pursuits.
BC Wrestling is planning to return to the North West Boys Duals Championship at Oregon State University. This will give our team of wrestlers the opportunity to not only compete but also learn how to prepare themselves both physically and mentally for competition.

Ben and Daniel Dyck are back to wrestling. After taking a break after graduating high school, they have decided to end their hiatus' and return to the sport. Picking up right where they left off, the boys have joined Team Goldrush in Prince George, B.C. to once again compete at the National level.
While wrestling for Team Goldrush and working as personal trainers, they also have the goal of starting a wrestling team at the University of Northern British Columbia in the next few years.
With the right amount of training and determination, they will be at Senior Nationals next March, with the possibility qualifying for the Pan American Games or Commonwealth Games next year.
Best of luck as you make your return and welcome back.
