Invited Guests

The Monterey Clinic of Champions is the kick-off clinic for the 2012-2013 season hosting coaches from programs throughout California to hear notable peers and experts on a variety of topics.  This year,  for the first time, two Clovis Wrestling staff members have been invited to speak and share some of what makes the Clovis Wrestling program successful.

I'll be speaking on behalf of the program with regards to philosophy, training, program design, teaching structure, drills, and other various parts of the Clovis Wrestling program.

Kim Tirapelle will be speaking as an expert on not only Sports Dietetics, but the importance of and implementation of nutrition & weight management strategies in wrestling.

It's a great honor to be invited to share a small part of what others have come to recognize as a standard of excellence in the sport.  Congrats to all who have helped build this program, from inception to date!
