Jay Weiss Selected to Participate in NCAA Coaches Forum

The David G. Bunning Head Coach for Harvard Wrestling Jay Weiss has been selected as one of the presenters at the NCAA's first Student-Athlete Development Coaches Forum, to be held in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., from May 27-29.

Weiss was among a group of coaches selected to present at the forum, which is designed to provide a development opportunity for college students who are interested in becoming coaches following graduation. This year, the first year of the program, focuses on the sports of bowling, soccer, swimming and diving and wrestling.

"I am excited to be a part of this inaugural forum for students who want to become college coaches," Weiss said. "It's a great way to help mentor our future leaders. I believe it was only a matter of time before an event of this nature came about and will only become a better tool for future collegiate leaders."

Participants will hear programs on the areas of program management, eligibility, budgeting, student-athlete well-being, diversity, championship play and committee structure. Weiss will combine with four other coaches in presenting programs entitled, "Coaching: The Big Picture" and "Building Your Program."
