What Next Year's Champions Do This Spring
Freestyle and Greco wrestling in the spring leads to winter champions because of the following reasons:
** Greatly enhances ones hips
** Teaches you to finish shots quickly and react quickly
** Competition against the best wrestlers.
** Shows you what the top level looks like.
USA Wrestling has a great article on their website called "Why Wrestle Freestyle and Greco in the Spring? Be sure and check it out.
What Makes Club Simpson Elite the Premier freestyle/greco program in Central Ohio??
Athletes who train here aren't just interested in a freestyle "open mat". They want actual, systematized training that allows them to advance at the fastest level.
And they get that training.
Many Freestyle clubs are basically a glorified Freestyle practice, with no tournaments and no real matches. You just learn some Freestyle moves from a few sessions in the Spring and maybe hit a tournament if it's in your back yard.
It's sort of like saying you're on a basketball team because you shoot hoops with some of the guys down at the local gym.
Club Simpson is an Elite team that competes with others from far and wide.
Some clubs put together a travel schedule, just as we do. But if History is any indicator, they won't travel - not like we travel.
Last year we took 32 wrestlers to the Worthington USA qualifier.
Out of 35 club members.
No club, from anywhere in the state, was even close.
No local club ever comes close to our numbers anywhere.
Those are the facts.
We also have No Guest Clinicians.
Many clubs bring in guests to bring you in the door.
They do their session and leave, and you are not likely to see that technique again, meaning you are not likely to master it, and be able to hit it in actual competition.
Because you haven't been trained to utilize that technique.
When this is the method of operation, you can see the greatest move in the world and it won't matter. Being trained to do something is a lot different than being told to do something - or seeing it in one practice.
At Club Simpson, you are Trained in a systematic way, so by the time you compete, it is second nature to you, giving you your best opportunity to win.
This is why we have qualified first-year freestylers for nationals every year now, for years. As we expect to this year.
If you haven't wrestled freestyle before, but you're a tough kid, you may be next. In this club, you can reach that level.
This program is for the athlete that wants to train extensively in Freestyle and Greco in the Spring. Athletes will train with me 2-4 times per week. Travel to tournaments as a team. Commit to excellence.
