Major emphasis will be on superb physical conditioning and clean living. Planning, studying, and managing your time are keys to success. Academics are important to wrestlers, We will stress education and work everyday.
Wrestling is very much like life: you reap what you sow. To be a Champion, we have to pay the price, we can’t win by just doing what is required during practice sessions. We have to work extra: running, weight training, drilling, studying films, etc. After wrestling, other things in life become easy. We will be prepared for the real world.
Wrestling aids in the development of the valuable qualities and traits that will last a lifetime. Our wrestlers will interact with the many facets of the school; we will incorporate students within all departments to our wrestling program.
