TBTWC strives to provide our youth of all ages, sizes and experience levels with a positive experience in wrestling. We work to teach them valuable skills important in life such as good sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline, hard work, sports ethics, self-motivation, confidence, character, courage, dedication and confidence to be Champions in life, on and off the mat. The structure of our program is to promote individual excellence from an unwavering commitment to being the best we can possibly be. “We’re building this thing the right way and building it to last.”
Of the many sports your child can participate in, wrestling is perhaps the most misrepresented, misunderstood and underrated. Hopefully this guide will help expose the myths and uncover the benefits wrestling has to offer, and most importantly, help parents understand how this unique sport compliments other sports choices their child makes.
The Actual Sport of Wrestling
Based on self-discipline, hard work, skill and determination. Conducted on a mat with wrestling shoes and headgear. Physically demanding, is relatively low “impact” and combative. Does not involve or even tolerate actions intended to cause injury.
World class wrestlers utilize skills, strength and endurance developed over a lifetime of practice and hard work.
Primary objective in wrestling is to gain control of your opponent and to ultimately pin your opponent by holding both shoulder blades simultaneously, on the mat for a period of two seconds.
Expanded Information about Little Hammers/Novice/Open/Elite classes
The little hammers practices are geared towards 3-5 year old potty trained 1st year wrestlers who are not quite ready for requirements of the novice room. A younger wrestler(3yo or 4yo) MAY be best suited for 2 years of little hammers before moving into our novice program but the goal is to progress up through the levels as soon as possible by learning all of the required technique in each level.
Our novice room is very structured and requires a child to be somewhat self motivated, non interruptive, and able to function without their parent in the room. This leaves a lot of young wrestlers in the making without a place to fall in love with the sport. That is why we created the little hammers. If we can drive a love for sport into them at a young age, we can keep more kids involved in something that benefits them personally, socially, physically, mentally and spiritually FOR LIFE.
Little hammers will focus on:
Basic wrestling movements and positions
Early mindset training
!!!!!IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED THAT LITTLE HAMMERS COMPETE!!!!!
