The University of Minnesota wrestling team, led by head coach J Robinson and his staff, will once again host a coaches clinic this fall. The event will take place on Oct. 26, 2012 at the Bierman Field Athletic Building in Minneapolis, Minn. The clinic offers professional instruction on the fundamentals and techniques of coaching wrestling and is open to all interested participants and fans of the sport.
The clinic's slate will feature 2012 Olympian and 2009 World Silver Medalist Jake Herbert, 2012 University Silver Medalist and four-time All-American Zach Sanders, and NHSCA National Coach of the Year and eight-time Montana State Team Champions Guy Melby.
Registration for the clinic will begin at noon on Oct. 26, followed by a welcome and introduction from Coach Robinson at 12:45. Jake Herbert will kick off the technical training sessions with an hour-long presentation at 1:15 p.m. Guy Melby will take over for the second early session at 2:30 p.m. At 3:45 p.m., participants will get the opportunity to observe a live practice by the Minnesota wrestling team before technique picks up again at 6:00 p.m. Herbert will speak for another hour before Zach Sanders will wrap up the night sessions at 7:00 p.m. All participants are invited to a social at the end of the evening, which will be held at Blarney's Pub and Grill.
Registration is now open for a fee of $100 ($115 if received after Oct. 23). Limited hotel rooms at the Days Inn University are available at a discount for out of town participants.
