The 2018 "Introduction to Wrestling" program will be in November at the S.L. Aquatic Center. 
Dear Parents:                      

        Would your son or daughter like to join the 2018 Spring Lake Youth Wrestling - Introduction to Wrestling Program? This is a 3 week – 6 session program beginning Thursday, November 1st. This program will expose your young wrestler to the exciting and challenging sport of wrestling. Each wrestler will learn fundamental skills and moves of high school (folkstyle) wrestling. We will work hard to provide a safe, supportive, and fun wrestling experience. It is our hope that after the 6 sessions your child leaves with some basic understanding of how to wrestle and desire to keep learning years to come. We also hope they have fun!

 

Here are some specifics:

  * COST – This year there is a 30 dollar fee for this program for each wrestler. The wrestler

will receive a Spring Lake wrestling t-shirt.
