MYAA Wrestling is for novice youth wrestlers ages K-6 that are in their first two years of wrestling. This program will teach the basic techniques of wrestling and develop athletes while keeping a fun environment as the number one priority. As the youth advance in age and experience, the coaching staff introduces more techniques while building their work ethic.
Our philosophy is to teach the kids the skills of wrestling in a structured environment that does not burn out kids from the sport. Many multisport athletes wrestle in the winter and we do not believe in single sport athletes. Our coaches have played collegiate sports, coached youth sports and built teams at very high levels. We are aware of how organized sports can positively influence a person’s life. When wrestling is coached correctly it creates many life skills that can be found in no other sports. It builds confidence on and off the mat because it teaches self discipline, overcoming obstacles, pushing through pain, as well as self defense. These skills carry on throughout an athletes life and help build the future leaders of our community.
Following are some of the life skills:
3. Mental Toughness
7. Agility, Balance and Flexibility
8. Nutrition and Weight Management
We stress the importance of traits such as: sportsmanship, honoring others (parents, coaches, opponents, officials), focusing on performance and execution rather than match score or winning/losing, learning positive thinking, mental visualization of success, goal setting and the realistic tracking of goals, embracing/ignoring pain (both acute and conditioning induced) and focusing on personal victories rather than medals, all of which will translate into lifelong success.
