VALLEY STREAM
YOUTH WRESTLING

Valley Stream Youth Wrestling Club '17-'18

The Valley Stream Youth Wrestling Club is a not-for-profit organization; our goal is to teach children about practicing sportsmanship, staying physically active, work on balance, agility, strength and developing reflexes all while having fun. Wrestling is a contact sport designed to teach children how to control their opponent while maintaining self-control. It is a sport of discipline, focus, and hard work, resulting in a positive self-image and strong work ethics. It’s a great sport to build character and one of the oldest spots in the Olympic Games. It does not promote violence, so you won’t ever see anyone throwing punches or jumping off
ropes, like the WWE. That type of behavior is purely for entertainment and is scripted, not something we do. There are three types of wrestling styles, Folk, Freestyle, and Greco, but we will be teaching Folk style which is the main style that is taught all the way to the collegiate level. Wrestling is designed to grapple with another opponent safely to the ground in a series of techniques by attacking the legs and exposing your opponent’s back for points, ultimately resulting in a victory. Since our 1st season (2017) our coaching staff have lots of patience when working with children and are eager to revitalizing the wrestling program for the Valley Stream community.
