Above is information from our one page flyer announcing an opportunity to do additional wrestling training during the upcoming season. We did this last year in January and February and are expanding the opportunity this year through out the season to a larger group of participants.
This is not an “elite club,” but simply an additional training opportunity. It is not intended to take away from individual club participation, but to enhance skills and opportunities for some of the experienced wrestlers which should also improve them as practice partners and competitors for their own clubs.
We hope this information will be forwarded to wrestlers, parents or coaches and encourage those with multiple years of experience who are interested in intensive training and the opportunity to train with other wrestlers in the central region.
