We study new strong resonances associated with the physics responsible for the strong electroweak symmetry breaking. We write down the lowest order effective chiral Lagrangians describing the couplings of these new resonances to the Standard Model fields and calculate signals for I = J = 0 S-resonances and for I = J = 1 ρ-resonances in the WWtt scattering in the process e + e - → υυtt at the Next Linear Collider. We also find low-energy constraints on the ρ-resonance couplings to the top quark.
