Wrestling Canada Lutte: TOPS Athlete/Coaching Summit, helps Wrestlers improve their pathway to the podium!

TOPS (Team Orientation Performance Summit)

A majority of Wrestling Canada Lutte's National Team athletes took part in the second annual TOPS Summit held in Calgary following the 2014 World Team Trials.
The focus of this Summit has two mandates:
1) Testing and monitoring of athletes. This includes functional movement assessments, assessments of strength, power, and stamina. Such monitoring is important in evaluating where our team members are strong and where there are gaps (areas for improvement). This data also helps to create a "gold medal profile" for developing athletes including targets and benchmarks Wrestling Canada looks for when identifying podium performance potential.
2) Education and lifestyle excellence. Athletes from the Junior, University, and Senior National teams work through a number of seminars dedicated to helping them achieve greater success on the mat by improving areas outside of their mat skills. This years seminars focussed heavily on Nutrition (training nutrition, weigh control nutrition, and recovery nutrition). Athletes also attended sessions on Mental skills, Video Scouting, Athlete Self-Promotion and fund raising, Athlete Tax assistance, Motivation, and more. Many of Canada's top coaches also participated in these and additional sessions designed to look at how we can improve our daily/weekly training environments to improve athlete performance and wellness.

I would personally like to commend and thank all of the athletes and coaches who helped to make this Summit a true success. Also thank you to all of the outstanding practitioners, presenters, and organizers of this Summit. If we can all commit to making even modest improvements in many of these off-mat/lifestyle areas. The sum of all these improvements will lead to tremendous international success!
