Book Description

Dec 1992
This is a complete, yet concise book covering the basics of coaching and the fundamentals of wrestling. Developed by the American Coaching Effectiveness Program in co-operation with USA Wrestling, this book is devoted to providing readers with coaching and sport-specific information. It's also the No. 1 resource in the Copper Introductory Level of USA Wrestling's National Coaches Education Program. Youth- and high school-level wrestling coaches will learn their major responsibilities as coaches, the tools required to be effective coaches, the communication skills needed to coach young athletes, the steps in planning and teaching sport skills, the methods for preventing and caring for injuries, and how to protect themselves from legal liability. In addition, this book features the essentials for coaching wrestling, including guidelines for conditioning and weight monitoring, descriptions of how to teach wrestling techniques, illustrations of wrestling skills and drills, a self-test to examine wrestling knowledge, descriptions of practice drills that will develop wrestlers' Seven Basic Skills, and an easy-to-use practice plan to improve wrestlers' abilities throughout the season. With the fundamentals of coaching and wrestling combined in one resource, the Rookie Coaches Wrestling Guide contains everything wrestling coaches need to make their coaching experiences safe, successful, and enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great beginning coaches book 11 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This was the first book I read on wrestling. I had very little background in the sport and did not wrestle as a youth. My son's program needed coaching help. This book was a good starter book. Along with the basic wrestling information it introduced, it also had valuable administrative and coaching tips. Positive attitude and reminders on what makes a good role model and youth coach are emphasized throughout the text. I recommend this book for other beginner wrestling coaches.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR TEACHING YOUTH 23 July 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is the A-z of basic wrestling coaching for new wrestlers and coaches alike. This book should be the first book purchased by any youth wrestling club and a prerequisite for any new coach of wrestling. It not only provides excellent ideas to teach youth wrestlers but is done in such a way your volunteer coaches understand and and can teach like veterans. A real winner

4.0 out of 5 stars An insightful book 7 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is really informative on the basics of coaching wrestling, from communicating, teaching, first aid, scheduling practices, and drills. Though it lacks wrestling moves themself. It gives the most out of a sixty-three page book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was looking for 19 April 2012
By mat6034 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was looking for something to help me coach my son in wrestling. This wasn't much help. Very little info on teaching him wrestling moves. This book is mostly about "Do you really want to be a coach?"
