Our full-year training philosophy is based on commitment and respect.
Commitment: Making practice/tournaments on time and consistently. Not expected to train every day, but inconsistency will not build confidence, fitness, or skills required to compete in wretsling or life. We also schedule in strategic breaks to balance things out.
Respect: Understanding our CORE Values, and treating teammates and coaches accordingly. We pair kids by age/skill/weight. When you skip practices/tournaments, it reduces your teammates' development, our ability to earn team points. Disrespectful to coaches and teammates.
Our full-year training philosophy is also split into 2 styles...Folkstyle, and Freestyle/Greco (FS/GR). 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.
