Every year in the United States about 40 million children play youth sports, yet 70% of those kids drop-out and quit by the time they are 13 years old. Further, three out of four youths stop competing in all sports by high school.
Surprising? Not really. Untrained coaches, focus on catering to the top 2-3% of youth athletes, lack of value for camaraderie, the learning process, combined with a focus on material goals at young ages and over-use injuries, all while ignoring process goals and fun, have created a havoc with youth sports and wrestling.
Our coaches are here to reverse that trend.
Our kids aren't NFL free agents, they're kids.
If you're interested in changing youth wrestling in this country, please consider supporting our organization, thereby giving student-athletes the tools to succeed, teaching them how to learn from failure, seek challenges, achieve a positive high performing mindset, create goals and accept ownership of their experience. But the single most fundamental thing we teach is how to have fun while being passionate about improving 1% 365 days a year.
As Frederick Douglass said, "It's easier to build strong children, than repair broken adults."
