The Nava / Breffle Wrestling Club at Dunwoody High School is looking for boys ages 6 to 14.

The Nava / Breffle Wrestling Club is proud to announce that we will begin our 2009 season the Week of November 16th.  We are looking forward to another strong year with more athletes and more competition than ever before.  For those of you who are new to the program, the Nava / Breffle Wrestling Club is a youth wrestling program held at Dunwoody HS for kids aged 6-14.  The club is intended to act as a feeder program for Dunwoody HS, but no one is precluded from the program.  In other words, we welcome all athletes regardless of school district. 

The Nava / Breffle Wrestling Club is a beginner’s wrestling program that will be held 2 days a week, typically from about 6:00 – 7:30.  Last year, we practiced on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  The exact days haven’t been set for this year, so please stay tuned.   As a beginner’s club, we concentrate on teaching fundamentals.  However, we do a lot of live wrestling and mix in a lot of strength and conditioning training.  We also try to have a lot of fun.

For those of you that are new to wrestling, the discipline, self confidence and sense of urgency learned in wrestling translates extremely well into success in other sports and life in general.  Your kids will learn balance, coordination and footwork that will help them in all other sports.  Most importantly, your kids will learn to stand in front of and engage an opponent of the same size and learn to give maximum effort.

Please stay tuned for further e-mails providing more detailed information about the up coming season.  We have a lot planned this year including 3-4 tournaments.  Please feel free to pass this e-mail along to anyone who may be interested in joining the club and feel free to contact me directly at jeffwarshaw@bellsouth.net or 770-335-8500 with any questions you may have.  Basic information is listed below:

When:  November 16 – end of January.  Two days a week from 6:00-7:30.  Exact days to be determined.

Where:  Dunwoody HS, on the stage located behind the gym.

Who:  Kids aged 6 – 14

  • Club dues are $50. 
  • You will also need to obtain a USA Wrestling Club Membership which is approximately $35.
