United World Wrestling Americas Delivers NF Workshop

By Tim Foley

LIMA (May 16) – The Development department of United World Wrestling this month organized a successful National Federation Workshop prior to the  Senior Pan American Championship in Lima, Peru.

Representatives from 17 countries from every corner of the American continent participated in the Workshop, which took the aim to improve the communication between the National Federations and show them how to take advantage of all the support available to develop the Olympic Wrestling in their countries.

"This is a great start for the people like me,” Jesus Salazar from Mexico said. “As as a volunteer, I work very hard for the NF and this information is vital to our organizational success."

Certificates were granted to all the participants.

The objective of this workshop is to give guidance to all the Pan-American NFs in a variety of tasks including: use of official email and operation of Microsoft 365; use of Athena to buy licenses and register for events; and the UWW websites; locate and sign-up for Olympic Solidarity and promotion of Olympic Values; prepare a strategic plan; and remind about general information such as the upcoming Youth Olympic Games, hosting requirements and the 2018/2019 calendar.

"We are really thankful with the UWW for organizing this activity, the support and training do not have to be only for athletes, referees and coaches,” said Carlos Ñancuvil from Chile. “It is mandatory for every NF to train and also educate the administration for the fully developing of wrestling. "
