What do you expect your child to get out of being a Highlands Wrestling Club member? Is it self-confidence, a strong work ethic, discipline, toughness, or just to have fun? Each young person can improve in many ways that benefit them outside of the wrestling room. As each wrestler becomes confident in their physical abilities, they will also become more confident in the classroom. We preach positive thinking and mental toughness. These characteristics will provide each child with a long-term resiliency to life’s ups and downs. Each wrestler will start to adapt healthy eating habits and exercise routines. They will learn how to control their emotions in difficult situations. We will teach them good sportsmanship, respect, and how to be a teammate. Our goal is to form well-behaved hard-working young people. By keeping our focus on what is morally important, we see great results on the mat.
Two of our former HWC members have won state championship at Abingdon H.S. We have consistently been one of the best clubs in the region and have produced multiple state champions at the middle school level.
Re-loading not re-building
At Highlands Wrestling Club, we believe strongly in re-loading rather than re-building. This requires dedication to providing a training program that's consistent for each age group. This way there are tough wrestlers in each grade and graduating seniors won't be leaving a team that needs to be rebuilt. At HWC, our goal is to offer a program for all age groups K-12 to produce top wrestlers in every weight class and age bracket.
Producing highly ranked, top state level wrestlers
At HWC, our goal is to produce top placing state level wrestlers year after year. With the complexities of the sport ever changing, HWC is committed to providing the best, most up to date and rigorous training programs required to do this consistently. It's also our program's goal to produce highly ranked wrestlers to help with scholarships to colleges.
Best reputation in town
At Highlands Wrestling Club, our goal is to have the best reputation for offering the toughest training from top level coaches. We want it known that our club produces the highest caliber athletes, but only because of excellent instruction and intense training.
