Walpole Youth Wresting is designed for boys and girls in grades K-8 and provides solid coaching in a safe and supportive environment. The coaching for this program is geared to the child’s age and level of experience. Every child practices and is matched with opponents who are of similar size and experience. Above all, the program promotes balanced competition, fun and growth as an athlete.
As a sport, wrestling helps develop agility, coordination, flexibility, balance, self-esteem, self-discipline, sportsmanship, and a strong work ethic.
“The most important lesson sports can teach you is that it is better to fail than to not risk failure at all. Success makes you no better than the person you are next to. Our legacy will be carried on by the kind of people we become.” - Gabe Dean (2 time NCAA Wrestling Champion)
Walpole Youth Wrestling is run by former NCAA All-American, Steve Hile. Steve brings over 35 years of wrestling experience to the program.
