So Far in 2014-15

We have gotten off to a great start so far this year!  Lots of action in December: two tournaments–El Dorado and Megatron–and 4 scrimmages: Valdez, two San Clemente scrimmages, and Laguna Hills/Marco Forrester Middle School.  As we move into January, we have a lot of momentum!

Here are some highlights:

*At the El Dorado tournament, we had 28 competitors, 16 medalists, 7 of them first place. Nate Garrison, Will Garrison, Craig Phoenix, Jake Herrera, Osten Dandan, Diego Garcia, Max Park, Caleb Park, Max Callas, all medaled.  Jorge Gonzalez, Ian Rudner, Kyler Petronis, Josh Bentley, Treyvon Shodja, William Burks, and Sam Callas all took first.

Results

Our youth club continues its success.  Recently we had great scrimmages vs Laguna Hills and Marco Forrester, and tournaments at San Clemente and Fountain Valley.  The kids got great experience at all events, and we continue to bring home some great hardware at tournaments.  Most recently, Caleb Park was awarded our first “Wrestler of the Month” for his recent performances, including a second place finish in the advanced division at Fountain Valley.

He is an exciting wrestler to watch.  He is incredibly aggressive and attacks the legs non-stop.

Caleb’s accomplishments are extraordinary, for he is only a second year wrestler.  He has worked very hard in the offseason, and it shows.  He is defeating wrestlers who have many years more experience than he does, and is doing very well in the advanced division at tournaments.  Hats off to him for all his hard work!

Little Big Kats

We have elected to not continue our Little Big Kats Class for the remainder of the winter.  We still continue with our regular weekly program though.  For more info on that, see the session info tab above or email bigkatwrestlingclub@gmail.com

 

This season we have a new class: the “Little Big Kats” class.  This is an introductory youth sports class for Mission Viejo, San Juan Capistrano, and surrounding Orange County youth for the sport of wrestling.  For young athletes in grades K-3, it is designed to teach them basic wrestling skills in a low key and fun environment. Each session includes not only basic skills instruction, but lots of games, and bodyweight calisthenics. Runs on Saturdays from 10-11:15 starting Dec 7 and running concurrent with the regular program through February. Each session is $7.

To register, follow the instructions on our “Session information” page.  Note: t-shirt/shorts/singlet only comes with enrollment in the regular weekday program, not the “Little Big Kats” class.

Summer Wrestling Camp

Thanks to all who came out to the summer wrestling camp these last two weeks.  23 kids from grades 2-9 had fun and improved their skills.  Lots of new wrestlers, and our returning wrestlers are really starting to pick up momentum.  We were able to have 3 separate groups of wrestlers according to skill level.  Its an exciting time in our program.  Everyone had a blast!

Info on our winter session will be released in Mid September.  Check back then!
