A great wrestling coach demands respect and leads by being an example of hard work, character, and dedication. Young men desire to be lead and are always up for a challenge. It is up to the coach to find a way to get the best out of each individual. Understanding when and how much to push a wrestler is essential in getting them to first improve and then succeed. At first a coach earns respect by simply being present. You cannot expect your wrestlers to be there every day if you are not. This respect runs both ways and is built around trust. Once a wrestler experiences a win due to the knowledge learned from his coach a belief is born. He must not only believe in himself but also in the fact that his coach is determined to help him get better. A great coach is quick to admit when he is wrong and is continually seeking out knowledge of the sport. The commitment a coach has to his team goes beyond the mat.  Wrestlers need to know that their leader will stand up for them at school and in their home life.
