Our ultimate goal in creating a youth and high school wrestling program is to inspire young men and women to pursue an athletic career, of any length, in a sport that provides the cornerstones for discipline, work ethic, and sense of self.
For many reasons participation in the sport of wrestling has dwindled over the past 20 years. It is the obligation of those that have benefited from their participation in the sport to ensure that it continues to exist.
Creating a youth program at Harvard University will provide a focus on athletics as well as academics. The coaching staff at Harvard is the most highly regarded in New England. The staff and the wrestlers have been leaders on the mat and in the community for decades. The combination of elite coaching and exposure to the Harvard environment and wrestling program will be an enticing package for the parents of local youth wrestlers.
