Today, the “Benefits of Wrestling for Your Child” brochure was highlighted on TheMat.com, our Facebook page, and through a blast email to coaches. Only a few hours after posting it, we are being inundated with email requests from clubs for quantities of 100-500 customized brochures. I’m excited that coaches see this as a valuable resource from USA Wrestling.

To all WSWA Coaches, Officials, and Athletes:

Please take a moment to renew your USA Wrestling Coaches Card or Officials Card for the 2011 - 2012 season.

The following link will take you to the renewal site:


The new season is now here. All Washington State Wrestling Association Members can renew their Coaches, Officials, and Athletes cards online. If you do not remember your password, please email me and I will send it to you.  Please do not just create a new account.  Remember that all members who purchased coaches and officials cards who are 18 years of age or older are required to have a background screening completed through TClogiQ. If you had one last year, it is good for 2 years so you won't need to renew until next season.  You need to complete the background screening process before purchasing your card.  To complete the screening you will need to click on your profile link and then click on the BG Check History link.  There will be a link there that takes you to the TClogiQ website.  Once that is approved you may purchase your USA card.  You will be able to print your card once your background is approved.

If you have any questions during the renewal process for your membership, e-mail me at: KDburchett@aol.com

Washington State Wrestling Association wishes you a very successful wrestling season!

Take care,

Kim Burchett
