Expanded Information about Novice/Open/Elite classes:
– This group is geared towards a slower pace of learning with more fun and games. The goal of this group is to teach the wrestlers to love the sport
while also teaching the most basic fundamentals in USA Wrestling’s Level 1 core curriculum
. NO HS WRESTLERS WILL FALL IN THE NOVICE CATEGORY
– This group is geared toward accelerated learning of the fundamentals of wrestling and wrestling movements. The goal of this group is to get wrestlers’ competition ready as quickly as possible through teaching all of USA Wrestling Level 1 core curriculum
and some of USA Wrestling Level 2
core curriculum. We do some agility and tumbling with this group as well as a fair amount of conditioning.
Elite – This group is geared toward continued mastery of our “go to” offenses and defenses and keeping our wrestlers in the best wrestling shape as is possible. This group is expected to know and be able to perform USAW’s level 1 curriculum completely as well as much from level 2 and 3. We are constantly introducing new techniques to our elite wrestlers. The expectations are that the wrestlers in our Elite room are training to become State/National Placers and Champions. These practices are all gas and no brakes and can be VERY physically and mentally demanding for your wrestler(s). Our goal has always been and remains to be to break down your wrestlers physically and mentally so we can then build them back up stronger. Lots of blood, sweat, tears, and puke have been shed in these practices. Once your wrestler is ready for the Elite room, it is in my and all of our staff/boards opinion that the treatment they get in that room will have a tremendous and invaluable impact on them both on and off the mat for the rest of their lives!
