Welcome to the

2020/2021 WWCA Membership Registration!

Please click on the gray registration bar below to begin the  registration process.

(Additional register information, updates and links below)

 

Included in this year's membership, in addition to the benefits received through the use of your membership card, is an opportunity to attend the 2020 WWCA Fall Virtual Clinic!  The clinic is free to all WWCA members and will begin on Wednesday, October 14, followed by a series of four additional weekly "live" clinic sessions on Wednesday evenings (total of five Wednesdays).  In addition to the WWCA live clinic sessions, coaches will also be able to access over forty pre-recorded clinic sessions offered through the National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) and free to all WWCA members!  A Schedule of Events and session opportunities are posted and described below.

 


Please be advised of the following requests and changes to the WWCA membership registration process and the virtual clinic:

  • Please carefully read and follow the registration instructions for the online registration process.
  • All registration must be completed online.  Mail-in registrations will no longer be accepted.  However, if you experience difficulty or have questions, please contact Wendall Bean for assistance.
  • While a school or program representative can register more than one individual in a registration session, members should create their own account that includes their own individual email address.  This is especially important with regards to the ability to access the virtual clinic, end-of-the-season voting process and the receiving of WWCA email communications.
  • Members (or school districts) still have the flexibility of paying for membership via credit card, ACH or personal check.  However, please remember to send a copy of the receipt when sending payment by check.
  • Individuals may register for membership any time throughout the season.  However, in order to access the live clinic session for a given week, registration must be received on the Tuesday prior to that week's clinic session.  The pre-recorded sessions through the NWCA can be accessed any time after the start of the live clinic sessions through January 31, 2021, and as often as desired.
