The Waverly Wrestling Club (WWC) is designed to introduce the sport of wrestling to newcomers as well as reinforce fundamental wrestling skills to the experienced wrestler. We focus on folk-style wrestling covering top, bottom and neutral positions. Wrestlers of all skill levels from beginner to experienced will benefit from this clinic. All sessions will include technique, live wrestling, conditioning and competitive skill games. On weekends, wrestlers will enter several local wrestling tournaments as well as some national level tournaments. Wrestlers will be encouraged but not required to participate in the tournaments.
Club practices typically start the middle of November and run through March. WWC has scheduled several practices prior to the Waverly Wrestling Club tournament (January 12, 2020). All techniques and skills demonstrated will be continuously reviewed so that kids do not miss out on anything. Parents will have access to videos showing the techniques that will be covered to review at home with the kids.
At the coaches discretion, we may move kids up / down practice times to accommodate skill and/or size of wrestlers.
