Freestyle & Greco Off-Season Wrestling

Purpose

To give kids the opportunity to improve their wrestling skills locally without having to pay large sums of money. Other off-season programs charge anywhere from $500-$1800 for their spring session. We can afford to charge a lot less because we are not running a business. Instead we are trying to win a state championship. Practicing Freestyle and Greco is the perfect way to do this.
We will be focusing on the international styles of Greco and Freestyle wrestling, exclusively. Training in both of these disciplines will enhance body awareness, quickness, and competitiveness that will translate into wins in folk style. We will be promoting an approach to wrestling that allows risk taking. Within the bounds of sport our program will encourage the excessive uses of force. We will approach our limitations as often as possible, and on occasion … to our initial surprise…exceed them.

Why Freestly & Greco?

All of the top wrestlers in the state wrestle year round and focus on Freestyle and Greco in the spring and summer. The Fox Lake Wrestling Club will be no different, focusing on the fundamental skills of wrestling while using proven techniques used on all levels of competition. We will use this fundamental approach as a building block with which to progress into techniques that enables scoring in Freestyle and Greco.

When

Practice will be Tuesday-Thursday 5-7pm


First practice will be Tuesday March 20th, in the Grant High School Wrestling Room.
