After review and reflection, BC Wrestling will be changing its development program. The goal is to enhance the type of programming to support our athletes in their development. Included in this approach is a revamping our current coaching structure. Our current High Performance Coach will undertake the lead in developing and implementing our current development program. With the assistance of other coaches, we will be re-developing our program for implementation in the spring. All inquiries with regard to development programming should be directed to Dave McKay. Information will also be updated on the BC Wrestling website.
BC Wrestling would like to acknowledge the work of John Pineda in his role as development coach. We know how much of an impact he has had on athletes throughout the province. We wish him the best in his future endeavours.
