Our full-year training philosophy (see below) is based on commitment and respect.
Commitment as making practice/tournaments on time and consistently. No member is expected to train every day. Additionally, it's your money...Spend it as you like. However, if your kid only makes a few practices a week, they will not build confidence, fitness, or skills required to compete.
Respect is understanding our CORE Values and treating teammates and coaches accordingly. We pair kids by age/skill/weight. When they skip practices/tournaments, it reduces their teammates' development, our ability to earn team points, and is disrespectful to the coaching staff that sacrifices personal time to coach them.
Our full-year training philosophy is also split into 2 styles...Folkstyle Wrestling and Freestyle/Greco Wrestling. Folkstyle is the American style. You typically see this at the youth, middle, high school, and college levels during fall/winter months. Freestyle/Greco is the international style. You typically see this at the youth, middle, high school and Olympic levels during the spring/summer months.
We understand and encourage our wrestlers to compete in a variety of sports. This will make them better overall athletes and people. Just be sure to limit other sports to the months outside of your focus season. Your focus season should be 3-6 months and end with a state or national tournament. There are state and national tournaments all year, so you can make any season work for your focus season. You just have to commit! Make a plan to stay active in wrestling (1-2 days a week) during the other seasons. Any coach on our staff can help you with this.
