What are you doing to get closer to your goals? Are you intrinsic or extrinsically motivated? If you need someone yelling at you and telling you what to do, you’re not striving towards goals you’re still dreaming! Goals are worth more. Learn to write a goal and the steps it takes it meet the goal, then get to work!

Great topic. Please watch about mid way through where Ben discusses his mountain logo and relates it to false peaks. I will add and I have told many parents, success at the youth level is great and we will always push to have success for every wrestler at every level, but our main goal is getting these kids to high school and they excel there. Our HS track record compared to other clubs is what sets us apart. You don’t want to peak before HS, you want to continue to grow through HS and even into college. Wrestle, wrestle freestyle and greco, and stay the path. Trust the process!!

Wrestling Parents Need to Hear This.

Great story

#MotivationMonday Four years ago Wilfried Tanefeu couldn’t speak English, he now holds a 3.9/4.0 accumulative GPA. Last November Tanefeu came into the Bismarck High School room as a 3rd-stringer on the roster, he finished the season as a varsity state champion. Wilfried began wrestling just over two years ago, last week he won a Fargo national title in his home state. The only limitations you will ever have are the ones you put on yourself.

Think about this for a second, most of our conversations with kids after a match follow these lines, sometimes a little more detail on technique or a couple questions to reflect on. If your conversations are not in a similar form, you’re doing more detriment then good. They know they lost, no need to keep telling them. Build them up!!

TEACHABLE MOMENTS

Technique without mindset is like having a pen with no ink, you’ll never accomplish anything! We can teach a million moves, but without the winning mindset its all for nothing. Coach Kolat is one of the best technicians in the world, and he just explained it to his college wrestlers/prospects.

👊What should your mindset be when running an arm bar? Here's what Coach Kolat told campers. . .

Saw this bench while on vacation and it spoke to me a bit. Pick the harder partner and force yourself to get better! Don’t just get by at practice, you’ll never just get by at a tournament. We have a ton of talent in out room, now it’s time to start pushing each other. Accept the challenge and grow! Get knocked down and stand back up! Keep coming back for more! Before you know it, you’re at the top of the podium......and the food chain!!

Top linemen double as top wrestlers

We have been saying it all along. The two compliment each other very well. Those who want to be successful will find their way onto the mats.

High school and college coaches are in near unanimous agreement that athletes should not specialize in just one sport. High school athletes are encouraged to run track in the offseason to improve speed, while playing baseball or softball can improve reflexes. While many sports are complementary, man...

TOP OF THE FOOD CHAIN!!

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.
