Falcons Wrestling is now entering its fourth season. Each year, we hope to help the sport grow, recruiting new wrestlers. Roughly half our wrestlers will step on the mat for the first time this year. Practice makes permanent. They way we practice is reflective of the way we will compete.
With all the new wrestlers we have, we need a couple of instructional practice mats for demonstration.
Also, our competition mats lack the additional edging needed to be regulation. As such, these mats would help provide a necessary buffer and allow us to host more teams in competition.
This project will benefit our wrestlers now and for years to come. Having a 10 X 10 mat with wrestling markings allows us to show beginning wrestlers all the basics. They can use this space to test out their new understanding of positioning and basic moves. Also, it will serve as a warm-up area and buffer for competitions.
Practice makes permanent and it is necessary for our wrestlers to be able to test out their knowledge in a space that simulates competition.
This mat will provide just that. It is durable and light weight, which easily allows for transport to our various practice and competition locations.
