Rest in Peace Youth Wrestling Shoes

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Don't Stall Ordering These Wrestling Shoes This year, expect few options for youth wrestling shoes. Especially, if you are looking at sub $70 price point. There will actually be more options closer to a $100 than ever before, but most youth wrestling shoes at what we consider entry level or a step above that entry level price point will be gone this year.  And with the fewer models, comes few choices of color. Most suppliers seem to play it safe with wrestling shoes this year. Expect to see mostly Grey and Black options for youth. Gone are the crazy colors and bright color options.  Here is a list of the shoes that will be retired this year (or have already been...

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Wrestling Singlets - Are They Gone? Unless you have been inside a wrestling room for the past few days with no access to a phone or the Internet, chances are you have heard about the new rules.  In a nutshell, you will have the choice of a few different combinations of gear. Here in the photo below from one of our suppliers, Cliff Keen has shown four different options: Fight shorts or MMA shorts with singlet underneath.

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Once again we ended 2016 with an "A+" rating with the BBB. And we were accredited again with them for another year. We also are a multi-time winner of their Complaint Free Award.

6 Destructive Habits That Will Ruin Your Wrestling Career

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


  Having one or two of these habits by themselves might not completely ruin your wrestling career, but a few of them together and you might as well kiss your wrestling career goodbye. 1. No Goals or Unclear Goals This is one thing that really changed both my wrestling and my academic success. Put down some written goals that you are going to work hard towards achieving.

Some specific and measurable goals include: Wrestle in X number of matches in the Spring and Summer...

Help My Son Wants to Quit Wrestling

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Background Story Jackson is my son pictured on the top of the podium. He is now wrestling again with the Frost Spartans Jr High Club. He started wrestling young around 5 years old - attending practices geared toward younger wrestlers and competing on a limited basis. I did not want to push him too hard in the beginning.

He said he did not want to wrestle any longer when he was around 10 years old.  The Non Wrestling Years Each time before we sign our kids up for something, we ask them if they want to do it. They understand when they sign...
