All of our classes offer the highest quality technical instruction, focused drilling, hard wrestling, mental preparation and strategy. Sign up any time during the months of March-November.

Spring

Training classes focus primarily on freestyle and folkstyle techniques in order to improve a students overall wrestling and prepare students for the many local, regional, and national tournaments.

Summer and Fall

Training transitions back to folkstyle techniques. The purpose of our Summer and Fall training is  to prepare our students for the main high school or kids competitive seasons. The Summer and Fall  is one of the best times to develop new skills, establish a strong base for conditioning, and work on timing. Training  focuses on learning new techniques and reinforcing the techniques and strategies of our wrestlers.

Winter (In-Season- Dec, Jan, Feb)

During the high school season, Valdez Wrestling offers Personal and Small Group lessons. These lessons focus on a wrestlers individual needs and trouble shooting areas that a wrestler is struggling in. Personal or Small Group training offers the fastest and most efficient way to improve as a wrestler.

What Parents Say

Walker has worked with many coaches during his wrestling career; many of them collegiate All-Americans and Olympians. But Coach Valdez’s approach is unique and excellent. He merges the technical and mental aspects of wrestling and competition more effectively than any other coach Walker has worked with. Walker is definitely a better wrestler because he is a student of Valdez Wrestling.
