January 24, 2018

Wrestling is a polarized sport. Most parents know nothing about it and assume it's dangerous. Those who become acquainted with it, however, swear by the physical and mental strength it builds. For those that know nothing about wrestling, but would like to acquaint their child with a little physical and mental strength, the Canfield Wrestling Club is hosting Drop-In Nights" on Jan. 25 and Feb. 1. All children seven and older are welcome to visit.

"Wrestling made me who I am today," said Assistant Coach Frank Giordano during a recent parent meeting.

The comment got Giordano jokes and mocking from other wrestling coaches. But the truth is, everyone in the club agrees that wrestling fosters character, work ethic, and discipline at a level unmatched by any other youth sport available today.

For example, wrestlers train in a room kept so warm their own sweat creates humidity. Also, while other athletic games stretch on for hours, wrestlers condense all their work, all their strategy, into an intense three minutes of sheer grit and determination.

Whether a child wins or loses a wrestling match is entirely on him; there's no outside team members or bad umpire calls to blame in wrestling. Children build confidence and self-reliance every moment they're on a wrestling mat.

More information on the club is available at, including practice times and details. Drop-in Nights require no commitment and no fees.
