Youth Wrestling Program (Grades 3-8)
Winchester Recreation Youth Wrestling Program (Grades 3rd – 8th)
Join Winchester Recreation and Coach Chris & Daniel Nissen this winter for Youth Wrestling. In this program coaches will strive to develop athletes with grit. Participants will learn how to face adversity and build the courage to keep pushing forward. Participants will learn the basics of wrestling and learn to enjoy the 1:1 competition that wrestling provides. There will be several half-day weekend competitions and tournaments during December, January, and February. The coaches expect participants to attend most of these events. Schedule of these events TBA.
What your kids should bring: Please have your child wear active clothing, T-shirt, and shorts to practice/matches. It is recommended that all participants purchase wrestling shoes and headgear. These items are not needed for the first week of practice, however, should be purchased before competitions begin. Please reach out to coach Nissen if you have any problems procuring these items or need advice on where to purchase.
