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.
