Letter to the Parents
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 here for 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 7th 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 led 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.
I am very excited for the upcoming season, and I truly believe that the club is poised for even greater success. Last season, we RE-captured several team titles at the historic Sperry Open, Battle of the Belt, and nearly swept all five boys age divisions at the 44th annual OKWA State Tournament, taking 1st in 8U & 10U and runner-up in 6U, 12U & 15U. Sixty-two of our athletes qualified for the State meet, some of whom had little to no prior wrestling experience before joining the team. The club claimed 6 more individual champions than last year, totaling 10 state champs and 12 second place finishes. Statistically, TTWC has crowned 44 individual boy's State Champions, 26 girl state champions in the past 6 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 newfound 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.
