Wrestling is one of the greatest crucibles through which to learn successful life habits. Through the participation in wrestling, athletes learn solid work habits which prepare them for the challenges of life. They learn how to adjust to success and failure, pressure and stress, how to overcome and persevere, how to deal with discomfort, and how to work hard…and they have a lot of fun along the way! Their progression from the learning and application of new techniques in guided programs of practice and competition provide the cognitive, physical and emotional training that helps to develop the courage, resilience, and positive attitude they will need as an adult.
Our vision is that both competition and character are important and inseparable, and both require hard work, more work than most think they must put in. Learn new skills and perfecting them is having fun. Being skilled brings meaning to the task. Being skilled and good takes a prolonged and consistent effort, and requires resilience to overcome the many challenges along the way. In addition, when it comes to winning and character, there is an order of priority: if a wrestler and his/her adult support system focus on the pillars outlined above, the winning will take care of itself, and everyone involved—the wrestler and adults— should see benefits off the mat in terms of greater maturity, responsibility, and a better outlook on life.
Why Wrestling? To put it simply, because wrestling is the toughest sport, and wrestlers are the toughest athletes. Wrestling instills the ability to overcome, to be resilient, to keep going. These things are sorely needed in school, in relationships, in employment, as sons/daughters, husbands/wives, and as fathers/mothers.
