Youth Sports Partners: Saddleback Valley Pop Warner

If your athlete is in elementary or middle school, it is important that s/he plays and tries multiple sports.  One sport that meshes very well with wrestling is football.  We have recently partnered up with a great youth football organization: Saddleback Valley Pop Warner.  Football is great at building aggressiveness, strength, and a love for contact that easily transfers over to the wrestling mat.  The best thing is that football is in the fall and wrestling is in the winter, so you can participate in both sports! Registration for their 2015 season is under way.  Get on it!
