A favorite style for most middle and high school wrestlers looking to change things up a little from the regular season. We have experienced coaches and freestyle almuni champions in the room to help teach newcomers and challenge seasoned veterans.
Folkstyle is always a part of our daily training, as our experienced coaches and top level wrestlers help to challenge and prepare your son or daughter for the next season. Our focus and emphasis on perfecting the fundamentals has allowed our program to produce the most masters and state qualifiers in the region.
An all around favorite during the off-season. New comers may shy away from Greco but it helps to develop a well rounded game. With a focus on throws, positioning and upper-body strength, your son or daughter will be learning from some of the best in the area.
The wrestling club gets underway immediately after the High School State Wrestling Championships with registration taking place on the first Tuesday evening after the state tournament. Boys and girls interested in joining the club may also register through the local park distict. All formal practice sessions will take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings through the month of May. Workouts will actually be scheduled through out the entire spring, summer and fall. This will enable the truly dedicated athlete to stay connected to the sport of wrestling year around. Athletes who are in elementary school with no experience will practice from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Athletes in middle school, high school or in college will practice from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Elementary school aged wrestlers can practice during the second session as long as they have some wrestling experience. All wrestling sessions will take place at Folsom High School, which is located at 1655 Iron Point Road.
Continue wrestling throughout the entire summer and fall. That’s five more months of off-season training; starting the first week of June, all the way through to October. Although initially we will continue to practice both freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling, we will eventually convert back to folkstyle wrestling for the majority of the program. When: Tuesday and Thursday evenings with two separate sessions. 1st session: 5 pm to 6 pm for beginner/novice wrestlers. 2nd session: 6 pm to 7:30 pm for experienced wrestlers.
