  • Provide a brief summary of your history, if any, with prior Team Texas events (i.e. years and events participated in as an athlete, years and events as a Team Texas coach):

  • Would you be willing to attend Team Texas Regional Clinics if scheduled? The idea of the Team Texas Regional Clinics would be to bring the Team Texas coaches to the wrestlers in advance of the Team Texas competition events, provide more opportunities for Team Texas wrestlers to train with their coaches and each other, and market Team Texas. Attendance would be volunteer time with possible reimbursement for travel expenses (goal would be to reimburse coaches for out of pocket travel and lodging.).

  • Are you willing to serve on a Team Texas Curricula Committee? (Idea is to develop a written and video curricula applicable to Team Texas such that all Team Texas Coaches use same terminology and teaching steps. This committee would need to rely heavily on experienced Team Texas Coaches to develop curricula that addresses Texas problem areas).

  • Do you have a facility that you could make available for Team Texas practices?

  • Do you have a facility that you could make available for Team Texas Regional Clinics?

  • Do you have a facility that you could make available for Team Texas Pre Event Practices (1-3 days before departure for event)?
