I am pleased to announce the start of a new wrestling season, and on behalf of Team Tulsa Wrestling Club I would like to officially invite you and your child to participate. The club is not affiliated with any particular school system, public or private. Wrestlers from all areas are welcome to participate. Click here for memberships and practice times.
I am very excited for the upcoming season, and I truly believe that the Team Tulsa program has a lot of momentum heading into its 6th season. Our program is well established, and I want to continue to work with and develop your athletes into competitive wrestlers while also helping them to become better young men and women in the process.
The wrestling club is suited for boys and girls, experienced or otherwise. We have seasonal and year-round memberships for individuals and families.
The "wrestling season", generally speaking, begins after football in late October early November and extends into February. Folkstyle competitions are held locally within the metro area at different schools and event centers. Click here for team schedule.
Team Tulsa Wrestling Club creates a culture that becomes very much like an extended family. Wrestlers, parents, and coaches form a lifetime bond of shared memories revolving around the great sport of wrestling. It has been my pleasure to be involved with wrestling for over 25 years, from competing at the elementary, high school, and college level to coaching the next generation of great wrestlers. Let me say that my most recent experiences as the coach of young wrestlers is the absolute best experience I have had with the sport to date. The youngsters are outstanding, and the parents are very supportive in all aspects, which has lead to a very rewarding experience for everyone involved.
Lastly, the Club is more than just a "name" or a "location". It is the young wrestlers, their parents, and the passion we all share for this sport that makes our program great. Many of the coaches do have children in the program, but each wrestler is still assured of equal time, instruction, and treatment devoid of any "politics". We as coaches are here for you guys and not vice versa, and our mission is to help develop competitive wrestlers as well as teach and instill important values that will last a lifetime.
In closing, I am very excited for the upcoming season, and I truly believe that the club is poised for even greater success. The 2020-2021 season was full of unique challenges and paradigm shift that changed how many people work and go to school. The Team Tulsa Program, its participants, parents, fans and supporters all came together to courageously pioneer us back to sport. Not only were we able to have a full season, we had one of our best seasons yet. By RE-captured several team titles at the historic "Sperry Open", Battle of the Belt, 15U division at the 43nd annual OKWA State Tournament. 40 individual athletes qualified for the State meet, some of whom had little to no prior wrestling experience before joining the team. Of the 40 wrestlers, 4 were crowned champion with 8 more coming in runner up. Most notably, we placed Silver in the 14U division at the WOW National Duals during the big 12 championships. Statistically, TTWC has crowned 37 individual boy's State Champions with 23 runner-up finishes, 23 girl state champions and 9 runner-up finishes in the past 5 seasons...
Wrestling is undoubtedly the closest sport that mimics life, and it could be the hardest experience your young wrestler ever endures. Wrestling for Team Tulsa definitely provides discipline, confidence, and a new found respect for life as they continue through their journey to becoming adults. It would be my honor to have your child compete as a Team Tulsa member, and I hope that you will consider what our program has to offer.
