What Our Program is About
Our program is open to boys and girls in Pre-K – 8th grades. Each wrestler will compete according to his/her weight, age, and experience at tournaments. See our calendar for practice days/times at the Oregon Middle School wrestling room.
Our goals are many:
1) First, of course, is the safety and welfare of each wrestler. Your wrestler is supervised at all times by staff trained in first aid.
2) We wish to provide the best wrestling instruction possible. We will work on a basic understanding of wrestling, building strength and endurance while making the instruction fun.
3) We highlight the importance of nutrition and exercise in wrestling as well as in general health.
4) We foster self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-discipline in each wrestler, and respect for fellow wrestlers.
Our team will be divided by age into 2 squads, allowing each wrestler to progress at their own pace in a group with a similar level of experience/age. Each squad will meet individually two times a week and come together for meets to wrestle as one team. Practice times and places will be posted.
Of the many sports your child can participate in, wrestling is perhaps the most misrepresented, misunderstood, and underrated. The ratio of participation to public awareness is remarkably lopsided. Each year hundreds of thousands of kids participate in this sport, yet the average person knows as much about wrestling as they might know about rugby or polo -- which combined, involve far fewer athletes. Our purpose is to generate new interest and awareness among parents whose children want to participate in this exciting and rewarding sport.
