OTTAWA — As part of National Coaches Week, a time to celebrate the positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada, Wrestling Canada Lutte (WCL) would like to take the opportunity to say thanks and give recognition to its NextGen coaches Carol Huynh and Kimin Kim.

Both Huynh and Kim have also been strong contributors to the direction of WCL’s high performance programs, where their voices have been welcomed. WCL is re-establishing the goals and program structure moving forward to meet the everchanging demands of wrestling development in Canada and will be communicating these changes in the near future.

“National Coaches Week is an excellent opportunity to recognize all our coaches for the work they put in throughout the year,” said Chris Woodcroft, WCL High Performance Director. “I would personally like to thank both Carol and Kimin for all their efforts in making the WCL NextGen program what it is today.”

Huynh and Kim have both been instrumental in the growth and development of the WCL NextGen program over the last several years. Through their leadership, they have contributed to a solid foundation of the NextGen Program including, but not limited to, policy development, athlete and coach selection, and coaching directly impacting our U23, U20 and U17 athletes.

WCL would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Huynh on being selected as an assistant coach with the University of Calgary Dinos Wrestling Club and wish her all the best in her new role.

WCL appreciates all the efforts of coaches within our community and hopes that all athletes and parents also take this week to say thanks to coaches who have had an impact on their careers, much like Huynh and Kim have had on the many individuals they have worked with as part of the NextGen program.
