The objectives of the Washington State Wrestling Association are to promote wrestling at all levels throughout the state of Washington, and to ensure the continuation of, and improve upon, opportunities for safe competition with exposure to various styles of wrestling. It is the intent that the Washington State Wrestling Association will be able to meet these objectives by creating opportunities in wrestling for competitors of all ages and, along with their coaches, parents, and fans, encourage their continued participation in their sport as they advance through their lives.
The control and
direction of the Washington State Wrestling Association shall be placed in
the hands of those people who are now working with Washington's wrestlers,
and the goals of the Association shall include the development of
responsible wrestling administrators from the ranks of the Washington
program at the local, state, and national levels who will provide
leadership and direction to their membership, to develop an attitude of
sincere concern among all coaches toward the improvement of all levels and
aspects of wrestling from elementary through Olympic levels of
competition, to provide channels of communication within Washington and
with the various other states, furthering the exchange of ideas and
experience to the benefit of all wrestlers, to develop an attitude of
unity within the State of Washington toward program development and
achievement, to increase the positive attitudes of educator, wrestlers,
and the general public toward the art and science of wrestling, to assist
with those activities which can be developed in a state wide basis, to
provide a system for democratic representation of all competitors, coaches
and concerned people in local, state and national organizations and
activities dedicated to the sport of continuity of effort as wrestlers and
coaches step forward from elementary level to the most advanced and
successful endeavor for which they may strive.
