" I really like the crocodile wrestling program because I got to do wrestling before middle school.  I also like it because I get to meet other kids my age."

The Crocodile Wrestling program is designed for 1st - 5th grade boys and girls to learn basic wrestling techniques.  Participants are paired with other wrestlers of similar weight and age.  Every practice is supervised by coaches with wrestling experience and is lots of fun. The sport of wresting includes tumbling and stretching and improves coordination and agility. Socialization and team building skills also increase as wrestlers work together becoming one team.  No previous experience is necessary to participate.
