Marcie Van Dusen, 2008 Olympian and past US National Team member is coming to Minnesota on December 11th, to be the guest coach at MN/USA Wrestling’s All Female Wrestling Practice.

Marcie is widely considered one of the best female clinicians in the sport today. She has run practices for various teams across the country over the past few years and is excited to be part of this year’s MN/USA Wrestling All Female first practice of the season. She is also currently head coach of the Menlo College women’s wrestling team in Atherton, California. Menlo College currently competes in Women’s College Wrestling Association (WCWA).

“I’m excited to have Marcie attend one of the first practices of the year. She is an excellent technician and a model example of dedication and the rewards of hard work. Marcie is a great role model for the sport, and having her at our practice is an asset to MN Women’s wrestling. It is a great opportunity for the girls to learn from her coaching, discipline and life experiences that were granted to her through wrestling”, said Rachael Holthaus, MN/USA Wrestling – Girl’s/Women’s Assistant Director & Coach.

MN/USA Wrestling’s All Female Practices are held on various Sundays throughout the season at the Pinnacle Wrestling School facility. All participants of the All Female Wrestling Practices must have a current USA Wrestling card. Cards will be available for purchase at the December 11th practice. For more information click here.
