2014 Holdrege Optimist Wrestling Trmt

Why Optimist Wrestling?

For over 30 years we have been offering wrestling for our area youth. In that time, thousands of wrestlers have gone through our program and walked away with the rewards that wrestling can offer. We feel that at a young level, wrestling should be taught in a confidence building atmosphere so that the kids can learn, like, and learn to like the sport. Wrestling offers fitness, involvement, confidence, personal achievement, along with countless other attributes that wrestlers carry through life.

With the help of HHS Wrestling Coaches Bruce Bricker and Troy Melroy, along with several HHS Wrestlers, your child will be offered the latest techniques. Our practices are structured for kids of all levels and experience, focusing on fundamentals and encouragement. Along with our coaches and other volunteers, we encourage you to take an active role in you wrestlers season. Parents are more than welcome to help during practice, and stay matside at meets. For 1st year wrestlers, having you there can help take the edge off.

There is no set number of meets that you are required to attend. A list of meets that will be attended by coaches will be given to you, in addition there are several meets that are attended by some of our “veteran parents” who are always happy to help. Whether you go to 0 or 12 meets your wrestler will benefit in many ways.

We look forward to seeing you this season!

 The Holdrege Optimist Club has been offering wrestling to area youth since 1978. High School Coaches and Wrestlers are active in our programs both at practices and at tournaments. HHS wrestlers are able to earn scholarships toward wrestling camp tuition by helping in our program. In the past 34 years, our club has donated numerous wrestling mats, as well as helping to fund the construction of the Multi-purpose room.
