About Us

Our Philosophy

We are committed to teaching the youth how to reach their full potential through perpetual self-improvement. Through the sport of wrestling we strive to teach young men and women what it is to work-hard, persevere, and overcome challenges. We strive to instill in our athletes true “grit”, a growth-mindset, and an attitude of gratitude. Our goal is to produce elite wrestlers who go on to reach high levels of success at the elementary, middle school, high school, college, open, and even veteran levels. We have instructors and athletes ranging in age from 5-60 that have competed at the local, state, national, and even world level. We focus on teaching proper wrestling position/technique, body awareness/agility, and mental focus/toughness. In addition to the great wrestling technique we offer the members of our club, we also focus heavily on building character. We strive not only to help build great athletes and wrestlers but to also mold young individuals of quality moral character. Each week our coaches focus on modeling a new character quality to the kids such as: respect, honesty, gratitude, etc. We are confident that you will like the positive changes you see in your child after completing a season at Folsom Wrestling Academy!!
