OUR MISSION

The mission of this program is to help students build a strong work ethic, character, self-confidence, and discipline to prepare them to be able to handle all of life's challenges.  

 

 

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

All sports reveal an athletes character, but not all programs teach character. We offer a physically active sport for your child, while encouraging them to adopt life values learned through wrestling to help them succeed in life. Teaching our athletes to improve in every aspect of their life both on and off the mat, creates an unmatched team culture with in our program.

 


WHY OUR PROGRAM?

​3F Wrestling is a comprehensive program designed to get the most out of each individual wrestler. We have discovered through years of studying the sport that nothing can replace hard work, but it is not the only key to the formula of success. Without proper technique, physical conditioning, and nutrition the majority of work becomes wasted. ​ 

 

Our dedicated staff can help any wrestler improve their wrestling skills. We realize the best wrestlers come in all shapes and sizes. The staff’s extensive experience in the wrestling world allows them to see slight mistakes in technique that might normally go unidentified and corrected.

 

 

BENEFITS OF WRESTLING

  • Wrestling provides a positive outlet for energetic boys and girls.

  • Wrestling is an individual sport, but also has a team component, and still teaches teamwork and the importance of working together.

  • It is one of the few sports where a child's size and shape do not matter. There is room for everyone and wrestlers only compete against others in a similar weight class.

  • Wrestling competitively is tough, but teaches empathy at a young age because sooner or later, everyone loses a match. How often do you see eight-year-old teammates hugging and consoling each other after emotional losses?
