We offer 4 nights a week, 11 months a year.
Preseason: Season starts the 2nd week of August and runs until the 1st week of November. Preseason is that time of year athletes to start getting that muscle memory back and getting the mind firing again. We work on developing new techniques all while perfecting our craft and getting our timing and conditioning back. Our focus during this time is overall mat awareness and mindset training.
Folkstyle: Season runs Nov. - Feb. This is the meat of the HS/Youth Season. Our program is built to give our athletes the best chance to reach their peak performance for end of year competitions. Practice sessions are more intense and a higher pace, with our focus on chain wrestling, and mastering techniques learned in preseason and early on. We are always adjusting practice plans to fit what our athletes needs are and also how our room is responding to what we are teaching. Our mindset as a whole is to develop our athletes to be driven by the process of always getting better, and competing to the best of their ability.
Greco & Freestyle: Season runs March - June. This is our peak season!!! This is where the Olympic & World Champion, dream starts!! We take great pride in how we teach, compete and learn during these months. We focus our time on explosion, positions, and overall athletic movements. The 1st month is always focused on the basic turns, lifts, hand fighting, and athletic movements. From there we continue to build. Our program is always fun and active during Greco season. Our athletes thrive on pushing each other and are always trying to out due the other in all they do. This makes a great environment for kids to improve and thrive and carries our program to the next Freestyle and Greco season!!
