Wrestling Benefits

•Wrestling provides a positive outlet for especially energetic boys and girls.
•Wrestling is an individual sport, but also has a team component, and still teaches teamwork and the importance of working together.
•It is one of the few sports where a child's foot speed, ball-handling skills, hand-eye coordination, and size do not matter. There is room for everyone and wrestlers only compete against others in a similar weight class.
•Wrestling competitively is tough, but teaches empathy at a young age because sooner or later, everyone loses a match. How often do you see eight-year-old teammates hugging and consoling each other after emotional losses?
