ConVal Middle School Wrestling Information

Winter is that time of Year when we challenge ourselves, our teammates, and our competing schools to the great sport of wrestling. One thing for sure, It is Definitely time to roll out the mats and get to the business at hand “MAT TIME”

So, in two weeks, this year’s wrestling program will begin and should be an exciting one. With many returning wrestlers, it makes for a great team environment, full of personal challenges as well as future team building. For you new wrestlers trying the sport for the first time, it means a solid base of experienced athletes and coaches willing and able to teach you the fun aspects as well as the hard, tough workouts associated with this awesome sport. No one sits on the bench, and you determine how well you do. You want to become a stronger, leaner, faster, more agile and flexible person?  Wrestling does that! You want to earn respect from your friends and fellow students? Wrestling does that!

Wrestling is about building Self-confidence!

Wrestling is everything you are now, building upon that, and creating ………….where you want to Be, “The Master of your own Success”.
