LINCOLN GIRLS WRESTLING
Lincoln Girls Wrestling is a new organization dedicated to providing a fun and welcoming environment for girls to experience the sport of wrestling. The club is open only to girls, ages 4 – 14 years old and their families regardless of what school they attended or city of residence.
The club has practices once weekly from early November through late March/early April. Sessions are offered for both new wrestlers and experienced competitive wrestlers. Information on specific sessions offered is updated on our web page.
Lincoln Girls Wrestling was started with a few goals in mind. Our first goal is getting more girls to participate in the sport of wrestling, we noticed that many girls are reluctant to participate in wrestling because they do not want to practice or wrestle against boys, the all girls format of our practices eliminates this issue. We also wanted to provide an opportunity for advanced instruction with the knowledge and mindset that girls wrestling is one of the fastest growing high school and college sports.
OUR COACHING STAFF
Our coaching staff has the experience and knowledge to guide your wrestler in reaching their goals. They have helped wrestlers reach the highest levels of success at the youth, high school and collegiate levels of wrestling. The most important aspect of our coaching staff is their dedication to helping your wrestler improve both on and off the mat.
Practices are held at Lincoln High School in the wrestling room. Please consult the calendar for practice dates and times. Practice attire is comfortable clothes for working out, usually shorts and a t-shirt. Wrestling shoes are recommended, but not required. All shoes worn on the mats, MUST NOT BE WORN OUTSIDE!!! No street shoes are allowed on the mats at any time. Singlets and headgear can be worn for practices, but are not required.
The fees collected help the club pay for, instruction, club insurance, club t-shirts, facilities fees and more. The club is focused on ensuring that every wrestler who wants to participate, can and is willing to make fee arrangements if needed. Additionally, we have partnered with the Lincoln Warriors Wrestling Club to offer our members the option of joining their practices at a reduced rate. This will allow our wrestlers to practice up to three times each week in preparation for competition.
