Lakeland College Wrestling Coach Mike DeRoehn is one of 60 coaches representing all collegiate divisions selected to receive full scholarships to participate in the third annual National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) Coaching Leadership Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on August 3 and 4.
The purpose of this Academy is to utilize peer group discussion among college coaches, athletic administrators and CEOs to develop best practices for protecting and strengthening intercollegiate wrestling programs through this challenging economy. Further, the NWCA wants to help coaches better align their programs with educational values.
Nationally-renowned coaching development expert, Dan Gould from Michigan State University, along with his staff, will be facilitating these discussions.
The NWCA is able to cover the airfare, lodging, meals and convention registration fees for all participants due to the generosity of several wrestling benefactors.
"With the success of the 2009 and 2010 Academies, we are looking forward to mentoring another group of outstanding head and assistant coaches," said NWCA President Brian Smith. "Being able to double the Academy in size this year shows that there really was a need for this type of program at the college level."
