This group is for Junior High and High School Wrestlers, or Youth Wrestlers who have been invited because they've proven they're ready for a more fast paced practice.
Wrestlers are treated more like adults in this age group, as they're a little older and can handle a more disciplined environment. They learn a combination of beginner, intermediate, and advanced techniques while drilling them to perfection. The Hammers Group is great for beginners and elite wrestlers alike.

How Classes are Structured
Each 90 minute class offers an opportunity to improve in specific areas of wrestling. The first 10 minutes is a structured dynamic warmup. We typically instruct techniques, and have students drill them for about 45 minutes. We work from a structured curriculum designed to help kids be confident in all 3 wrestling positions; top, bottom, and neutral. The next 15 minutes consist of repetition drills on specific techniques to develop muscle memory. The last 30 minutes is live wrestling, or sparring, where kids get to put what they've learned to the test.
Competition isn't mandatory in our programs, but we highly recommend it for several reasons. Competing builds resilience and boosts confidence, while refining wrestling skills and instilling values of sportsmanship and character. It encourages goal setting, fosters camaraderie, and introduces your child to high-pressure situations, equipping them with essential life skills. Moreover, it provides a platform where the lessons learned in the club can be applied to real-life scenarios, helping your child become a better athlete and a more well-rounded individual.
Why is Wrestling Right For Your Child?
Wrestling is great for teaching kids valuable lessons with long term benefits.
Wrestling Teaches Valuable Life Skills...
If they've already begun wrestling at their local middle or high school, our program will give them a leg up on the competition. The more you train, the more proficient you become.
For those trying wrestling for the first time, our program serves as a solid foundation for success. Moreover, kids in our program not only discover the exhilaration of the sport but also gain valuable life skills, including teamwork, discipline, and perseverance, which are not only essential for success on the mat but for thriving in all aspects of life.
