Why Wrestle?

The Newport Little Guys Wrestling Club provides opportunities for up and coming wrestlers to achieve their full human and athletic potential. Wrestling is perhaps the purest form of athletic competition to exist in the realm of organized sports. Of all the sports, wrestling is perhaps the best sport for overall physical development because it involves all the muscle groups, and requires the greatest balance of athletic skill. During training a wrestler works on constantly improving their strength, flexibility, stamina, balance, speed and technique.

Wrestling is a very intense, highly competitive sport. It teaches the wrestler to pull from within themselves great power and strength, it forces the truly competitive wrestler to push themselves both mentally and physically beyond what they once thought possible.

Wrestlers learn the value of preparation and hard work, and the role it plays in achieving one’s life goals. What wrestlers learn on the mat can be transferred to real life experiences. Wrestlers are self reliant, they are mentally and physically fit, they have a great work ethic, they are self disciplined, competitive and responsible. Wrestlers also are goal oriented and very confident.
