Welcome to NSWCA

“Dedicated to the attainment of educational objectives through all types of wrestling”

Nebraska Scholastic Wrestling Coaches Association

In 1975, a group of wrestling coaches headed by Jim Holechek of Lincoln East, envisioned an organization of wrestling coaches dealing specifically with wrestling and not under the umbrella of the Nebraska Coaches Association. The overall objective was to be “improvement of all phases of wrestling in the state of Nebraska.”
