The Mat Hog Wrestling Club invites all children in grades one through six of the Punxsutawney Area School District, Ss. Cosmas & Damian, and the Punxsy Christian School to participate in the Punxsy Elementary Wrestling Program. A registration meeting will be held on Tuesday - October 24, 2017 at the Punxsy Middle School cafeteria at 6:00 PM to explain how the program works. If for any reason you can not attend the meeting, you may still register online or at any practice session. Please contact Greg Skarbek at (814) 591-6110 or email Kelly Skarbek for more information.
Wrestling can be a very enjoyable and rewarding experience for kids. The program will teach basic wrestling techniques to the beginner as well as focus on building skills for more experienced wrestlers. Also, many games and drills will be implemented to better develop coordination and strength. Wrestling also builds self-esteem and character as well as agility and overall body conditioning. Practice sessions will also include brief lecture periods stressing the values and importance of good sportsmanship.
Online registration will soon be available from this interactive website. Registering online for the program is highly recommended and encouraged, but is not required. (Online registration is provided by Sports Engine. An active account will be required in order to register online. If you don’t have a Sports Engine account you can sign up for FREE today.) Thank you!
