As a member of the Grappler Club, what do I receive?
The Grappler Club sponsors the Staeger-Wood Futures Award which is available to graduating seniors of the Springfield Wrestling team. This award was established in memory of Bob Staeger and Bill and Pat Wood who were long time supporters of Springfield Wrestling and The Grappler Club. This scholarship award is funded through donations and fund raising. The amount and number of awards is determined by the funds available and the quality of the candidates each year. The award(s) are presented at the annual Grappler Club Banquet.

Our desire is to have every wrestling parent join our club and get behind Springfield Wrestling both spiritually and financially. In these times it is important that we visibly support the efforts of our young people and their coaches to let them know that their hard work, sacrifice, and dedication are sincerely appreciated.
To achieve our goals we work through various activities to provide equipment for the wrestlers and training coaches, and an annual banquet that recognizes the participation of each wrestler.
Dearer heavenly Father, we gather here together this evening to honor these young men for their contributions to their schools and their achievements as a team. We thank you for giving them the opportunity to compete in this most ancient of sports, wrestling. Competing not only against their formidable opponents, but also against temptations of mind and body.
We thank you for the lessons they have learned from their coaches, their teachers, and from each other; character building; lessons of preparation, discipline, perseverance, self reliance, and respect. May they continue to mature, representing their schools and their families with honor and distinction.
Lord, we thank you also for the safety of these teams and their legion of loyal fans who traveled both near and far during this long arduous season. We are ever mindful of your protective embrace as we journeyed to other venues, but most of all for the grappler’s longest trip to the center of the arena.
We ask you now Lord to bless this food to our use and us to thy service. Amen
