The Randy Ralph Memorial Provincial Open Wrestling Tournament

November 1, 2016 at 6:03 pm Leave a comment

We are very proud to announce that we will be holding the first annual Randy Ralph Memorial Provincial Open Wrestling Tournament. This tournament will be held on Saturday, November 26th, 2016 at  at Roncalli High School in Avondale, NL. This is a open wrestling tournament, so any athlete of any weight class or skill level may participate!

This tournament is being held in honor of Mr. Randy Ralph. As a passionate wrestling coach and long time President of the Newfoundland and Labrador Amateur Wrestling Association, Randy was the very heart beat of the sport of wrestling in the Provence of Newfoundland and Labrador for a long time. A portion of the tournament proceeds will be going towards creating an award in Randy’s honor for a NL wrestling athlete. We will also gladly be accepting any donations anyone would be willing to donate.

That same weekend we will be offering a wrestling coaching certification clinic for Level 1 (community sport coach) for any one who is interested in becoming a certified wrestling coach with the NCCP. We will also be doing a wrestling officials certification clinic the same weekend. We have trained clinicians coming down from from Wrestling Canada to facilitate both courses.There will be no over lap between both courses so completing both is possible and encouraged. The officials clinic will happen Friday evening and the coaching clinic will happen Saturday evening as well as Sunday morning. We are really trying to promote the certification of coaches and officials in NL so The NLAWA is offering these courses to any one who is interested at absolutely NO COST !!
We would like to be as accommodating as possible. If you are only able to make part of the coaching courses, please let us know ahead of time, and we will schedule you to do the remainder at the first possible opportunity. If you can not make the officials course, you may still attend the tournament to get the swing of things, we will try to work you into the reffing schedule as best we can to gain experience. If you would like to help out with the sport any where in the Provence in any way, we encourage you to attend one or even both courses.

If you are interested or require any more information please contact Peter Petipas at (709) 746-2039.
