We are gearing up for an exciting season of youth wrestling. Kevin Lepola will serve as our head coach for youth wrestling again this season. Kevin has an extensive background in coaching and participating in wrestling. He has been a wrestling coach of all ages since 1997.
We are excited for Kevin to lead our program. Our club was one of the first in Arkansas and has had great success and we plan to build on that success. Just a few of the clubs achievements are: four time Arkansas State Team runner up, multiple state champions, six national level championships, and fifteen national level finalists.
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Youth Wrestling is a sport designed for boys and girls 5 to 15 years old. This wrestling program focuses on freestyle and folk style wrestling like seen in high school and college competitions. Wrestling is a sport that will help develop agility, coordination, flexibility, balance, self-esteem, self-discipline, and a strong work ethic. All children will face opponents who are similar size as they are.
