The Spotswood Wrestling program seeks to establish a strong foundation where competition is encouraged and quality character is promoted. Wrestling is a physically and mentally challenging sport that requires dedication and determination. Athletes will be taught proper technique and endure physical training workouts. As a team, we will strive for greatness and overcome obstacles together. Individually, athletes will learn the importance of being part of a team and the individual responsibilities associated with it. As student-athletes, academics are the first priority; time management and accountability are vital characteristics to be a success. At Spotswood, we strive to build better athletes and productive citizens of the community.
