- Francesca, Cam's Mother
How did Cam get started wrestling? 
Cameron wanted to wrestle! He got a flyer from school and attempted to fill it out for me! When I picked him up from school I noticed the flyer with my name written on it in big black marker. 
What's your advice for managing all the schooling, practices, and other activities?

Set priorities, plan ahead but be flexible! Kids learn so much from us-more from what we do than what we say. Maintaining a positive attitude is absolutely key!

"We love our wrestling shoe skins. They let Cam go anywhere off the mat and save time taking his shoes on and off."

In his first year wrestling Cam learned the basics, had a ton of fun, and is ready for next year!
