PWCA Coach of the Year:

To be eligible for Coach of the Year recognition, the coach must be a member of the PWCA and receive

the votes for District Coach of the Year in their respective district. A coach may be nominated as an at

large nominee, if extenuating circumstances exist, ie. did not receive the District Coach of the Year,

but has had a strong team showing in Sectionals, Districts, Regionals, and States. That nomination can

be placed on the floor at the PWCA Board meeting the Thursday evening at States, and must receive a

majority vote of the Board of Directors.


Once  a coach receives the District Coach of the Year Award, he will be given a standard form to fill

out pertaining to specific accomplishments of his team for the current season. That form needs to be

forwarded to the PWCA President. A booklet of all respective District COY nominees, will be compiled.

These booklets are then distributed to all officers, and district presidents, at the PIAA Wrestling Championships.


All officers, and district presidents are to turn in their ballots, no later than the completion of the

semi final round for each classification.
