Nava / Breffle Wrestling Club is a youth wrestling program held at Dunwoody High School for kids aged 6-14

The Nava/Breffle Wresling Club was started to honor the memories of Louis Nava and Doug Breffle. These young men were Dunwoody High School students who loved the sport of wrestling!

You can read more about the club in these articles at The Dunwoody Crier and The Dunwoody Patch.

The Nava / Breffle Wrestling Club is proud to announce that we will begin our 2011-2012 season on November 15th. 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 High School for kids aged 6-14. The club is intended to act as a feeder program for Dunwoody High School, but no one is precluded from the program.

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 roughly the same age and weight and learn to give maximum effort.

November 15th through February 15th, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Advanced Practices:
