My mission is to create a safe, fun, and educational atmosphere where your child can learn the right tools to win to become a "Champion For Life". We accomplish this by introducing your athlete to a variety of proper skills, techniques, and different types of training regimes that will help your child make the right decisions when it counts.

There are no substitutes for hard work. We focus on the individual athlete to make sure the correct basic fundamental skills are being learned. This allows us to see some early signs of success and for your child to experience it.  This is just the foundation and we must continue to learn and add to this foundation in order to build the complete athlete.  I will prepare you for the challenges ahead.

Therefore, I feel it is extremely important for your child to develop confidence in his technique, strength / conditioning, and himself. I address these issues by staying committed to helping your child succeed and by working directly with your child on a regular basis. I want to build a positive relationship with our athletes and community to develop a reputation for quality and service that exceeds all others.

The academy places a heavy emphasis on understanding your athlete’s strengths and weaknesses and helping them apply technique based on their specific body design.  Academy training is geared more towards one on one/private training with your athlete. We focus on wrestling technique, speed and agility, and mat strategy that will help your athlete best find success on the wrestling mat.  We teach mental focus and toughness to help your athlete grow both in the sport and in life in general. Film review from practice and competition will be used as a teaching tool in these practices.  We will also apply strength training elements to the program as appropriate.

Academy training can be done in conjunction with the kid’s club practices or on a standalone basis.  Our goal is to make this fun, while giving athletes who are showing an above average level of talent and potential the opportunity to continue to grow in a more specialized training environment as an enhancement to their kid’s club practice routine.

Coaches will work closely together to ensure that your athlete is not over trained or overburdened in any way.  As mentioned earlier, this is all geared towards doing what we can to make your athlete better, so training is adjusted accordingly throughout the season.

Academy Coach, 
Joe Williams
