Coaching Staff

Meet our Coaches

At Chaparral Wrestling Club, we understand the critical role that coaches play in young athletes' lives. All of our coaches go through an extensive background check, are USA Wrestling coaching certified, and most importantly, are good men that have your child's best interest in mind - on and off the mat.
