Just checking in to see if the club got up and running this past Monday.  I have an 11 year old 85 pounder who is interested in joining.  Do you have kids signed up that his size?  We plan on stopping by this Thursday.

Yes we started on Monday.  And we have a wide range of wrestlers.  There will definitely be someone he can train with.  

We had over 30 wrestlers at Practice on Monday.  Coach Deral Brown does a great job running practices and is a great instructor.  We are blessed to have him on board.   If you were not there Monday, come today (Wednesday).    Practice is from 4:30pm-6:30pm.  Must have USA card.  Check above post for the other details.

 

Thanks

Coach Kimrey
