  • The Curby Cup - Help Save Olympic Wrestling

    Jacob Curby Cup Organizing Committee
    USA Wrestling
    April, 2013

    Dear Friends in Wrestling,

    The Jacob Curby Foundation is dedicated to the mission of the advancement of Olympic-style wrestling competition in the United States. It was founded on behalf of Jacob Curby, a member of the United States National Greco-Roman Wrestling team who suddenly passed away in 2010.
    For this memorial competition we have invited several top Greco-Roman teams from around the world to come to Lyons Township HS in La Grange, IL to wrestle the American National Team in a World Cup format.
    THIS IS THE PREMIER GRECO-ROMAN COMPETITION IN THE USA. The competition date will be on Saturday, May 11th. Our honorary chairman is Dan Gable! In addition to the great international competition, this will also be a Rally to Save Olympic Wrestling! Here is an overview of the events:

    May 11th Saturday
    9:00 Takedown Radio from Lobby
    10-12 Clinics in Vaughan Gym (Dan Gable and other stars will speak to all clinic attendees at 11:45)
    Girls Clinic-conducted by Helen Maroulis of the US National Team
    Youth and High School Greco Clinics-conducted by the Athletes of the USOEC
    12:15 Lunch to all clinic attendees
    1:30 Competition begins with 2 preliminary rounds
    Round 1: USA vs. Hungary Lithuania vs. Serbia
    Round 2: USA vs. Serbia Hungary vs. Lithuania

    6201 Joliet Road Countryside, IL (let me know if you plan on attending)

    There are several ways that you can be a part of this historic event.

    The Curby Foundation will be hosting (3) free wrestling clinics. Check-in begins at 9:30. Participants will receive a t-shirt, lunch and credentials allowing access to the Curby Cup competition.

    Come to the competition only. Coaches can receive free tickets in advance for their wrestlers if they come as a team. Bring your team banner and march in the Opening Ceremonies at 4 PM.

    Attend on your own with parents and friends.
    Coaches- if you plan on attending the clinics, send me a number of wrestlers, along with t-shirt sizes so we can plan the lunch and have the appropriate shirt. If you are coming to the competition only, contact me with the number of advance tickets that you will need for your team.

    This year, more than ever, we need to support wrestling. Please consider coming out to the Curby Cup on May 11th for the competition, celebration and to support the cause to Save Olympic Wrestling!

    Not only be a great day of Olympic leve competition as Team USA takes on Hungary, Lithuania and Serbia, but be used to continue the fight to Save Olympic Wrestling with dignitaries present from USA Wrestling, Dan Gable, Denny Hastert, Senator Cullerton, who will read the Illinois Sentate proclamation in support of Olympic wrestling and Bill Scherr who is involved at the highest level of the international effort to keep wrestling in the Olympic games.


    The 5 Illinois National Dual Meet Champion teams will be honored along with the 3 State Champion teams from the previous high school season. It will be a day of wrestling celebration and support to save our sport.

    There is a free kids clinic, free shirts for the kids who participate, and they will be treated to a speach by Dan Gable. Tickets are available if you are just coming to the competition and celebration that starts at 1:00 on the Curby Cup website.
