Advanced/Intermediate Team Information

The Intermediate / Advanced Team is a combined team that consists of at the Advanced and Intermediate levels. Kids on this team generally have 3+ years of wrestling experience and are beginning to control their emotions and stay focused for extended periods of time.

Kids will be pushed to test their comfort limits and expand their wrestling arsenal at this level. However, there will remain a strong focus on technique, fundamentals, muscle memory, and mat awareness at these team practices.

This is the level where we will begin preparing the kids to take that next step in terms of competition and success on the mat. Kids at this level will be encouraged to compete for as much as they feel comfortable and get at least 30+ matches during the season.

  • This is the level where we will begin preparing the kids to take that next step in terms of competition and success on the mat.
  • There may be a few rare 7-year-old kids who belong in this group. Still, the majority of this team is comprised of 3rd - 8th graders as this team requires an ability to focus and stay engaged for extended periods of time, display extreme attention to detail, a demonstrated understanding and mastering of fundamental techniques, and the ability to push yourself mentally and physically outside of your comfort zone.
