Alberni Wrestling Kids Camp
The Alberni Wrestling Club is once again hosting their annual Kids Wrestling Camp July 8-10th in the ADSS gymnasium. The camp will run over three days from 10am to 12 pm and will feature instruction from local coaches, alumni, and high school wrestlers. As well as learning some basic wrestling moves and technique, the camp participants will also partake in fun wrestling themed activities.
Unfortunately, due to the labour dispute occurring in June, high school students were unable to continue the tradition of traveling to the SD70 elementary schools and introducing the students there to the sport of Olympic wrestling. The Alberni Valley Wrestling Club wants people to know that their popular summer program will continue and their kids camp is being offered once again free of charge.
"When we [the wrestling club] introduce wrestling at elementary schools and the kids camp, we always stress the importance of fun and safety," explains Aaron Keitlah, an ADSS high school wrestling alumni and now a wrestler at North Island College and a coach in the Alberni program. "We always go through a proper warm-up and stretch to limit the possibility of injury and try hard to reveal the enjoyment of wrestling rather than the competitive side."
The camp will be a great opportunity for kids to stay active and meet new friends over the summer break. For some it will serve as a kick start to summer and being a part of the wrestling programs at the local middle schools. Others may come to simply enjoy participating in the fun games. The camp focuses on participants in Grades 4 -7, although there are some cases where younger and older athletes have been involved.
Wrestling is a fun and safe way to encourage and teach a healthy and active lifestyle, as well as the feeling of being a part of a team. Participants in the camp will learn the fundamentals of the sport in a playful, fun-centered atmosphere from some of the top development coaches in the province. Our Kids Wrestling Camp is completely free so why not come out and give wrestling a try.
If you already feel like you would benefit from some time away from your kids over the summer, this would be a perfect event to take part in. The camp will run from 10 am to 12 pm all three days with registration being held each day starting at 9:30. There are registration forms available online at www.alberniwrestling.ca or at the gymnasium which needs to be filled out by a parent/guardian. Participants are asked to bring gym strip and clean running shoes. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact Nolan Badovinac or Ryan Yewchin at 250-723-1609.

Look at that smile!
I won the clubs two years ago, and my game hasn't been the same since! Here's hoping they do the same for Adam's game, because it could use some work! Only because he's too busy with hockey related matters and putting a winner on the ice instead of shooting under par, of course!
