Welcome


Welcome to Winchester Youth Wrestling! As we enter our 10th season of youth wrestling in Winchester, we have lots of new and returning coaches and an exciting line up of instruction and activities. We will also once again be participating in the Northeast Regional League (NER), with many scrimmage, dual meet, and tournament opportunities for our kids.

Wrestling is a unique sport. It is possesses both a team and an individual component. Participants are paired with others of their own weight class, giving all kids regardless of size a chance to be successful.

Wrestling is also a demanding sport. Physical conditioning, coordination, and agility are as important as technique in our instruction. Recently, a parent shared with us the "10 Reasons Football Players Should Wrestle". They are listed below. It looks like these benefits of wrestling apply to ALL sports:

1. Agility--The ability of one to change the position of his body efficiently and easily. 2. Quickness--The ability to make a series of movements in a very short period of time. 3. Balance--The maintenance of body equilibrium through muscular control. 4. Flexibility--The ability to make a wide range of muscular movements. 5. Coordination--The ability to put together a combination of movements in a flowing rhythm. 6. Endurance--The development of muscular and cardiovascular-respiratory stamina. 7. Muscular Power (explosiveness)--The ability to use strength and speed simultaneously. 8. Aggressiveness--The willingness to keep on trying or pushing your adversary at all times. 9. Discipline--The desire to make the sacrifices necessary to become a better athlete and person. 10. A Winning Attitude--The inner knowledge that you will do your best - win or lose.

All kids 3rd through 8th grade are eligible. We hope that interested parents will read the Parent’s Guide attached below and contact us with any questions that you may have about the sport or our program.

Dates, Times, Location: Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6:00 - 7:30 PM November 20, 2014 through February 26, 2015 Winchester High School Wrestling Room
