Why Wrestle?

Wrestling is a very intense, highly competitive sport. It teaches the wrestler to pull
from within themselves great power and strength, it forces the truly competitive
wrestler to push themselves both mentally and physically beyond what they once
thought possible.

Of all the sports, wrestling is perhaps the best sport for overall physical
development because it involves all the muscle groups, and requires the greatest
balance of athletic skill. During training a wrestler works on constantly improving
their strength, flexibility, stamina, balance, speed and technique.

Wrestlers learn the value of preparation and hard work, and the role it plays in
achieving one’s life goals. What wrestlers learn on the mat can be transferred to
real life experiences. Wrestlers are self reliant, they are mentally and physically
fit, they have a great work ethic, they are self disciplined, competitive and
responsible. Wrestlers also are goal oriented and very confident.

Is Wrestling Safe?

Wrestling, like all sports, has the risk of injury.  Wrestling has fewer serious injuries than football, basketball or ice hockey.  The majority of injuries associated with wrestling are strains and sprains.

Your wrestler will get bumps, bruises, mat burn, and bloody noses.  Don’t panic, it’s all part of the sport and your child will never be asked to wrestle if they are hurt or not feeling well.
