"IT'S NOT WHETHER YOU
GET KNOCKED DOWN, IT'S WHETHER YOU GET UP"
Mondays / Thursdays 6:00 - 7:00 for the beginner group. This will consist of 1st / 2nd year wresters, or anyone else for that matter, that are looking to learn the basics building blocks of becoming a good wrestler.
Mondays / Thursdays 6:00 – 7:30 for the advanced group. This will consist of any wrestler that feels confident that they know the basic fundamentals of wrestling as well as have the correct attitude and attention span as to not be a distraction from the rest of the class. They should have a good understanding of correct stance, takedowns, defense, starting positions, pinning combos etc…and be expected to take practices seriously.
We will likely warm up & review the basics as a group, then split up to focus on drills relevant to each groups skillset. Further practice opportunities will be available for the beginners as the season progresses.
Apparel: Gym shorts and t-shirt is recommended for practices. No street shoes will be allowed on mat. Wrestling shoes or socks will be the only footwear allowed on the wrestling mats. Head gear is optional, but at this level most kids are not wearing head gear.
