Four wrestling organizations came together to launch the Coalition to Keep Wrestling in the Olympics: USA Wrestling, the National Wrestling Coaches Association, the Amateur Athletic Union and the National United Wrestling Association for Youth Wrestling.
Many other organizations have contacted USA Wrestling about joining, and are in the process of sending in their information and donation. We expect to be able to add to this list on a regular basis going forward.
This new coalition will include any and all organizations who are willing to stand up and work together for a common goal, which is to insure that wrestling remains on the program of the Olympic Games.
This is not an organization of individuals. There are other ways that private citizens can support this cause. This is geared entirely to organized groups willing to publicly add themselves to the coalition.
This will be a collection of groups of all sizes, including both non-profit and for-profit organizations, basically any organization which stands behind the effort to keep wrestling in the Olympics.
In order to join the coalition, a group must provide a contact name, email address and phone number, which will allow us to network together and execute the strategy.
Each organization must also be willing to provide a small minimum donation, which will be used exclusively on the effort. The minimum donation suggested for membership in the Coalition for Keeping Wrestling in the Olympics is $100 for national and international organizations, and $25 for local organizations. Obviously, larger donations are encouraged and welcomed.
The financial support will help fund all of the actions which together makes for a successful campaign. It will be used directly on projects such as public relations, international communication, research, education, promotional materials, networking and international travel for meetings with the IOC and members of national federations and national Olympic Committees. Additional projects will be developed by the leadership committee for this effort. Coalition membership will help keep this issue in the forefront and allow wrestling to make its case to the world. It will only be used for this project, not other wrestling programs.
