Philosophy: I believe in working hard, and playing hard. Youth wrestling should be fun. It’s important to maintain a balance between engaging and challenging so that our kids develop a passion for the sport. I care less about the wins and losses and more about what our kids are gaining in return.  Building a strong foundation is the key to future success. I believe wrestling is a compounding sport; the more you put in, the more you get out. What you learn in wrestling goes beyond the mat. It’s our job as coaches to make sure every day our kids get better not only as wrestlers but as young men and women. I’m excited to be part of this growing program and hope to leave a positive impact on our wrestlers.

Philosophy: “Work Hard, Play Hard!”Wrestling will teach all involved how to be successful in life because it teaches you how to overcome challenges. Do you want your kids to be tough? A Winner? Then have them wrestle. When – they fail, they can only blame themselves. Where – they learn how to challenge their comfort zones, self-reflect, and learn that even after a win they need to train again tomorrow. Why – because it builds character and creates confident, self-reliant individuals.
