Steeped in Tradition
Roxbury Wrestling is steeped in tradition both at the high school and the youth/recreation level. It was previously believed that Roxbury High School started wrestling in 1958. Further research has shown that the first year of inter-scholastic competition was during the winter of 1951-1952. There was intramural wrestling after school in the years prior. That makes Roxbury Gaels Wrestling 60+ years old and counting!
The Jr. Gaels wrestling program is for children in kindergarten thru 8th grade who want to learn to wrestle and compete with kids their own age and weight. The program teaches more then just wrestling technique. It emphasizes the value of sportsmanship, poise, goal setting, discipline, work ethic and other important “lessons of life.”
The Roxbury Jr. Gaels wrestling program has also been around for many years. The program offers a team for novice (beginning) wrestlers, as well as teams for junior varsity and varsity youth wrestlers. There is also a Clinic program for children in kindergarten and 1st grade. There are experienced coaches at all levels of the wrestling program and all hold Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y certification.
"Through wrestling, through the hard work and the sweat, through the victories and the defeats,
we learn a great deal about ourselves. Wrestling shows you your limits, your weaknesses,
your strengths and, ultimately, you grow because of what it shows you."
-- J. Robinson
