Coach Joes Corner
When we started the Jr. Wolverine Wrestling Program we wanted to provide the Woodstock area a place for kids to learn the basics of wrestling while having fun! Over the years the Jr. Wolverines have become one of the leading feeder programs in Cherokee County! We consistently place well as a team and as individuals in tourneys and our kids show good sportsmanship and are well respected as good athletes and students when outside our wrestling room.
For me as a coach, I want the kids to have a place to come to make friends and have fun. My favorite part of wrestling has always been the relationships built over the years. I want the kids to have that feeling of growing friendships on the mats that carries them into their lives. It is also important that our wrestling family supports our wrestlers and continues to instill the lessons we teach while in the room out into behaviors as the wrestlers grow into adults.
