Wrestling

Wrestling prepares a person to compete in the game of life. The wrestler must meet his opponent and do battle completely on his own. No one can substitute and time outs are not possible. You have no one to check, screen, and block or assist you in anyway; there is no one to pass the ball to, and no one to blame for your mistakes. When you win, you must win with class and when you lose, you must lose with dignity.

Wrestling is a unique sport. In other sports, when contact is made, they blow the whistle and stop the action; in wrestling when contact is made, we’re just getting started. No sport requires more sacrifice and discipline than wrestling. The individual, through self-denial, offers more of his character, than can ever be explained here. It is something you carry with you throughout your life, and through every trial, test, and tribulation. Wrestling … truly teaches life skills and values.
