Why Participate in Wrestling?
Few sports require total use of the body and wrestling develops this with all the following benefits:
1.greater physiological development
4.strength and leverage
6.co-ordination and reaction time
8.very low body fat
Wrestling in schools and clubs is a sport of individual participation functioning within the framework of team concepts. This aspect contributes to the development of life-long patterns of responsible behaviour including respect for others regardless of social or racial origin . A young person involved in wrestling can be expected to display increasing self-confidence and appreciation of their self-worth, and develop analytical and adaptive skills.
What is more wrestling is fun and, like other athletic pursuits, all the family can participate in various ways; from supporting the kids (yes girls can wrestle too!) and their clubs through to becoming a qualified referee.
