There is a lot of potential for the sport of wrestling to grow, both in qualify and participation. There are also many simular road blocks for the sport. I'm my opinion having a consistent place and time to practice is essential to the success of any program. I'm creating this thread to create a discussion which can help myself and others solve logistical problems facing our programs.
Busted ass school.
I am jus starting a team in Texas where we have athletic periods. I have to share a room with cheerleading and gymnastics, their apparati takes up a bunch of space. also, this situation allows alot of people on the mat. I am trying to start a new youth club...any ideas?
Do your districts have portables that you can use? They self contained units with A/C and Heaters. They're small, but it could be all yours.
I'm with you , I don't know if your situation has changed but our program suffers drastically with out having a consistent place to practice or workout. We are by far the biggest club in the school by the number of participants (46) , We share a side gym, but when there are games going on we cant even practice. During the winter season there have been times where we have gone 2 weeks with out being able to be on our mats. We then end up being a little sluggish with the lack of live wrestling for that long period of time. We do practice sometimes at other near by schools, but I am extremely frustrated now and I am looking into finding a possible classroom at one of the schools in our district. We don't even have a sufficient weight room for our athletes. we share a small area in our neighborhood community center. If anybody can throw us some ideas we are open and willing.
My current situation. I work at an inner city title one high school in Greensboro, NC. Resources are next to nothing. Students have no way of returning to school so practicing late is not an option. I'm sharing an axillary gym with the different basketball teams in my school. I've scavenged my school for a room or area where we could leave the mat rolled out on the floor permanently. I convinced the best solution is trying to build an external building for a weight room so we can use the old weight room. This becomes a win, win, win. Other sports have a place to lift, basketball can practice all they want, and we can do the same. Any suggestions or ideas on how I could accomplish this? Thank you
