Spring Veterans Class

Back and expanded by popular demand!!! We will be doing a veterans class at all 3 AWA locations! Please read the description below about the class this spring

 

Jiu-Jitsu, another combat sport has a high amount of adult participation so frankly we don’t see why wrestling can’t do the same.  This may seem revolutionary, but this class will contain little to no live.  Rather we will have a focus on learning positions and doing sparring in these positions to have a deeper understanding of them.  Frankly I would love to see a bunch of parents get on the mat so they can have a deeper understanding of what their kids are doing and the limitations/difficulties of some positions.  It would also be awesome to see some coaches participate to sharpen their skills for the upcoming season.  Initially we are going to just start out 1 day per week, if that goes well and attendance is good we will bump it up to 2.  Feel free to email with any inquiries.

Who: Anyone Post HS who wants to get some mat time and learn

Starts: March 27

Ends: May 20

Days plus locations

AWA Lake Country- Tuesday 7:30-8:30pm

AWA North Shore- Thursday 7:30-8:30pm

AWA Packerland- Sunday 5:30-6:30pm

Cost: $100(or $175 for 2 locations.)

Veterans Class!

As some of you may have heard we are going to try and do a veterans wrestling class for those people who are out of high school and still want to get a good work out in on the mats.  Jiu-Jitsu, another combat sport has a high amount of adult participation so frankly we don’t see why wrestling can’t do the same.  This may seem revolutionary, but this class will contain little to no live.  Rather we will have a focus on learning positions and doing sparring in these positions to have a deeper understanding of them.  Frankly I would love to see a bunch of parents get on the mat so they can have a deeper understanding of what their kids are doing and the limitations/difficulties of some positions.  It would also be awesome to see some coaches participate to sharpen their skills for the upcoming season.  Initially we are going to just start out 1 day per week, if that goes well and attendance is good we will bump it up to 2.  Feel free to email with any inquiries.

Hope this makes all of the tournaments more accessible to our members.  As you may have noticed we are not running the Preseason State this year.  It is a lot of work and we thought we could better serve our wrestlers by taking them on more trips this year.
