The goal of Lamorinda Wrestling Club is to help kids fall in love with the sport of wrestling through a combination of technique, games, competition and friendship. Our focus is teaching the fundamentals of wrestling to children aged 6-14. While we will try to accommodate all children, preference will be given to returning wrestlers.
Practices teach kids the fundamentals of wrestling, including attacking, defense, counter-offense, control and escapes. Sessions consist of a mix of gymnastics and calisthenics, technique, drills and live wrestling. The focus will be on learning the fundamentals, having fun and sharing the values wrestling is well known for - hard work, humility, self-confidence and respect.
Parents are welcome to observe practices but are not allowed onto the mats unless invited by an instructor. They are prohibited from cheering or coaching from the sidelines.
Practices are held at the The Garden Center at Wilder. This is a newly constructed space that will accommodate more wrestlers and parents who would like to watch practice.
What to Bring
For practice, your child should wear shorts and a t-shirt: please no jeans, corduroys, sweaters or sweatshirts.
Please make sure your child has a bottle of water - there is no water fountain in the gym and your child will be very thirsty!
Please make sure your child has wrestling shoes. For hygiene purposes, your child should wear street shoes into the gym and then change into his/her wrestling shoes once in the gym.
If your child has braces, a mouth guard is recommended.
