GTC wrestling welcomes volunteers willing to invest their time and energy into our club kids, and to growing the future of the club. Those interested in helping coach must first be approved by the GTC Wrestling Board and the Commissioner of Coaches. Once approved, individuals will be required to complete the following steps below, as outlined by OKWA.

 

**All email confirmations of completion and certificates will need to be forwarded to grovetakedownclub@gmail.com to be kept on file by the club.**

OKWA uses USA Wrestling to streamline it's process for background checks and required training. You will be responsible to cover the $30 background check fee up front, but GTC will reimburse you the cost when provided a receipt. You do not need to purchase an actual USA membership, the training piece is free.
