Why Wrestle?

Wrestling is a fantastic and unique sport. In some ways it is similar to other sports, but there are clear and notable differences.

Much like other sports it requires discipline, dedication and desire to achieve success.

However, the difference in wrestling is evident in practices, and mostly in the individual thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.

Although youth wrestling is a team sport, youth wrestlers are challenged individually by competing against a single opponent who is relatively in the same age group, weight and skill level.

You don’t have to worry if your child will compete against someone who is considerably bigger, older or more skilled.

In other sports, you depend on other teammates on the field or court to support your efforts. In other sports and on occasion, some athletes can sometimes take “plays off” or not go 100% and still come away with a victory

In wrestling, this is impossible. If you give less than 100% for one second, you may lose. One hundred percent full effort and focus is required to be successful.
