Too Many Kids Leave Sports Because Of The Car Ride Home

Great thoughts! The sports (all sports) are hard enough on kids. Encourage them on the way home, help them set realistic goals, help them keep perspectives and focused on their goals. Parents have to be their kids biggest cheerleaders!!

Brad Frost, Women's Hockey Coach at Minnesota, urges parents to support their kid's team regardless of talent.

I have always told our wrestlers that what we do in the room goes way beyond what happens on the mat. We are developing good, tough, educated people ready to make an impact on the world once this wrestling career is over! Champions in and for life! #lakelandbuilt

Nice read and something many old and young struggle with. We want wresters to fight for everything, but ultimately be ok when things don’t go their way. Controlling emotions is huge, some get it quicker than others. We are in the struggle together! Please share with your wrestlers!

Everyday you need to PAY the price for the glory you want. It isn’t cheap and it doesn’t come easy! What did you do today to get closer to the top of the podium?

Again, ask yourself, what are you doing on your own with parents, coaches, or anyone else telling you to do it? That’s what separates those on the podium from those on the floor!

The Lakeland Predators Wrestling Club was founded in 1978 in an effort to give as many local grade school aged kids as possible the opportunity to wrestle. Based at Antioch Community High School, we are convenient to families in the Chain of Lakes region in northern Illinois and southeastern Wisconsin. We strive to be flexible, low maintenance and affordable. With a focus on sportsmanship- we teach kids to wrestle, work hard, and have fun while providing competitive opportunities for both inexperienced and experienced wrestlers. We are members of the Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation and our club members are carded by USA Wrestling.
