On The Hard Road
Leadership Development Plan Pasco High School Wrestling Robert K. Bodnar Head Coach
Athletes, coaches, parents, and staff:
This leadership handbook was developed with the intent that all athletes participating in Pasco High Wrestling will acquire leadership skills as a benefit of participation in our program. As leadership is a program goal of Pasco High Wrestling we are making our leader-athlete development plans available to athletes, coaches, parents and Pasco High Staff. We hope that through this information, all involved will be more knowledgeable about the goals of the program and how students will benefit from participation in the sport of wrestling.
Leadership skill development will make students more effective students, employees, and citizens. We hope with the implementation of the wrestling teamís leadership development plan, the teamís program goals ,as defined in our team mission statement will be met more effectively. Our intention is to provide this information so that all involved understand how leadership development fits in our plans and goals. We feel that implementing these leadership plans will make our attempt at achieving these goals more specific and measurable.
Pasco High School Wrestling Teamís leadership development plan was constructed by R.K. Bodnar in association with the ďDeveloping Team Leaderís course developed by Dr. Thomas Kane, Southwest Missouri State University. The National Wrestling Coaches Association and the United States Marine Corps support this leadership training course. In order to understand how leadership development fits into program goals we will need to take a look at the team mission statement for Pasco High Wrestling.
Athletes parents and staff must be committed to the Pasco High School Wrestling teamís Mission Statement in order for the successful implementation of program goals. We ask that athletes, coaches, staff, and parents read and discuss our mission and ask any questions you may have prior to the start of the season.
