Kids & Wrestling

Of all the sports choices a parent and child can make, wrestling is perhaps the best sport for overall *physical development as it involves all muscle groups, and requires the greatest balance of athletic skill. Not only does wrestling improve coordination, speed, agility and intensity, it strengthens virtually all muscle groups from hips, legs, torso and upper body, including neck and grip strength. 

One of the great aspects of wresting is the use of weight classes. It allows kids of all sizes to compete with others on a safer, more equal playing field. Wrestling also demands a level of commitment, focus and discipline that’s unlike many other sports. Because of the characteristics specific to the sport of wrestling, young athletes can expect to develop tenacity, persistence, and skills that carry over into other sports arenas. 

Many parents and wrestlers note individual improvement in other aspects of their life resulting from the discipline and success found through wrestling. Wrestling teaches athletes how to compete. When you watch a game of basketball, football or soccer, you often see young kids on the field taking plays off. In a one on one sport such as wrestling, the athlete is forced by the nature of the activity to engage and compete with the opposition 100% of the time. Wrestling also teaches personal accountability. There is little room for blame when you are the lone participant from your team competing at the time. This can be intimidating at first, but over time becomes liberating. You can lose as a team and win your match, and vice versa. Personal confidence continues to build with each match and flourishes with more experience. 


Mission Statement

Our Mission is to develop student athletes who will excel in the classroom, the sport of wrestling and life. Our goal is to develop individuals who demonstrate the following qualities: character, confidence, commitment, discipline, responsibility, physical fitness, good nutrition, hard work ethic, and lifetime learning/teaching. We also stress the concept of parents and children working and having fun together so that the family may be strengthened in the process.
