GOAL: Our main focus with our off season program is to bring everyone together to work towards a common goal. We believe it is impertive to train with different partners through out the year in order to maximize your training. We will have wrestlers from 3 different states and over 15 different schools at our off sesaon workouts. We firmly believe that if kids train with different partners through out the year, it greatly benefits them come folk style/high school season. High School coaches and parents are more than welcome to attend and watch practices at any time. We are hoping that by providing addition off seaosn workouts for all of our area wrestlers we will build the wrestling in our area to great heights, and help ALL of the local HS programs along the way!
