Edge Wrestling Technique
The Edge offers Elementary Classes for younger grade school children. This is the entry-level class into our program. These classes are designed for students to develop the fundamental skills needed for success at every competitive level. The Edge program has a proven track record, over three decades of success, that is arguably second to none. All of our most outstanding wrestlers have come from our youth program. The development of solid fundamental skills at an early age is extremely important. It is also important to teach young wrestlers that learning skills can be fun. This philosophical approach to wrestling has made The Edge what it is today. One of the most highly respected and quality youth programs in the country. The minimum age requirement for students in this class is six years old. The maximum age is defined by when the athlete is deemed ready for the middle school class.
Our Elementary School classes will focus largely on proper footwork, functional movement patterns, solid positioning, and basic techniques, all of which are necessary for success at the higher levels of the sport. We will move at a pace more suitable for our younger athletes, while still allotting time for drilling, live wrestling, and conditioning.
MIDDLE SCHOOL CLASSES
The Edge offers Middle School Classes for older grade school children. These classes are designed for students to learn, improve, and have fun. The primary objective is to begin and continue the development of basic fundamental skills needed for success at every competitive level. The curriculum is designed toward the long-term success of the athlete and not simply winning now. Our Middle School classes will focus on more advanced positions and techniques, all of which will build upon the foundational skills and positions already acquired. We will move at a pace more suitable for our older athletes, allotting time for instruction, fast-paced drilling, live wrestling, and conditioning. The development of solid fundamental skills at an early age is extremely important. One of the most highly respected and quality youth programs in the country. The maximum age is defined by the athlete’s entry into high school, or when the athlete is deemed ready for the high school class.
