In addition to teaching wrestling technique, the program spends time on the “selfs”.
- Self respect: a foundation of good sportsmanship, true self respect can only be achieved by
respecting others and being honorable in our words and actions.
- Self reliance: the goal is for our wrestlers to begin to understand the relationship between effort
and achievement. To examine how our actions can affect outcomes before looking
to blame others or circumstances outside of our control.
- Self control: mental attitude has a huge impact in sports and in life. Some time will be spent
addressing the positive and negative impact of thought. Following direction and
focusing on the task at hand is important for growth. Order and expectations will be
be clear and consistent (expectations vary significantly from K to 6th).
