Only two weeks left of the Spring Season. Besides regular practice there are three events left this spring. This Friday a Free clinic from a world champion, the Crusher tournament this weekend at Layton High, and then next weekend the state tournament for Greco and Freestyle at the Legacy Center. I am making a plea to all those that have “burned out” and dropped off, all those that avoid weekend tournaments due to money, to all those high school kids who wanted to take a few months off, to our very small and very large guys who go to tournaments and only have one in their weight. The state tournament is a big deal for our team and for the youth wrestler. I would highly suggest planning on registering for this event in two weeks. For those interested in Hotel stays for Friday night the next two weeks, I will make a post soon on what Hotel I will be staying at.
The clinic this Friday is about a $250.00 value and it is FREE for all USA members. I know that it means two weeks in a row of missing school on Friday, but I think this clinic may be one of the highlights of your wrestler’s spring season. Les is a friend of mine. He was the world team coach the year the USA won the world championships, he is a 2X NCAA champion, he is a World Champion and Olympian. He came last year and did a clinic for us and I am a huge fan. The clinic will be Friday from 11:30 to 4:00 at Layton High School. Then the Greco tournament is that night. As a coach, I am a huge supporter of academic excellence, but this is one clinic that I suggest a dedicated wrestler miss class for.
