Hello Wrestlers and Parents,
I am so glad that you are considering the sport of wrestling. Not a lot of people know about REAL wrestling, many more are familiar with the funny stuff you see on TV. I started my wrestling career when I got cut from the basketball team in 8th grade. I was undersized for basketball, but I had a lot of heart. I sure am glad my coach encouraged me to wrestle. At first, I had no idea what I was doing, and that is how most kids are in middle school...but within a few week I had the basics down and was having a blast. Throughout the sport I learned how to push myself harder then I could have imagined. My teammates helped me become the best I could be. I enjoyed the sport so much , that I eventually ended up wrestling in college, and now I look forward to coaching future wrestlers. I learned that wrestling is a life skill, something that carries over into all parts of a person's development. Life will certainly throw struggles and challenges our way, but when we wrestle well, we can overcome anything in our path. I use the lessons I learned on the mat everyday at work and at home. Check out this website www.orangewrestling.com for some more good reasons to wrestle, I really hope you will join us. I look forward to working with your child to teach them life skills through the sport of wrestling...and by the way-we are going to be great!
