"It Takes Everyone" – Not Just a Motto
Air Academy Wrestling aspires to be an outstanding educational-athletic program that provides a high-quality experience to every athlete. A high-quality experience is one in which every athlete:
Is coached using the principles of positive coaching
Has fun during practices, games, and competition
Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance
Learns “life lessons” that have value beyond the wrestling mat
Learns the proper skills, tactics and strategies of wresting and improves as an overall athlete.
We recognize that coaches are the people who most directly make this all possible. It is our goal to provide every member of Air Academy Wrestling with the tools to succeed on and off the mat. We are committed to creating a positive culture, in which coaches, parents, fans, officials and athletes work together to achieve our mission.
The Wrestling Mission
Air Academy Wrestling has a long history of wrestling. As you can see in the "Built on Tradition" feature, we have many state qualifiers, placers and champions. One thing no Kadet wrestling team has ever done is place top 10 in the state tournament. With a new coach and a motivated team the Kadets have aspirations to not only place in the top 10 but to be the best team in the state. On the road to doing this we will have numerous opportunities to improve in the sport of wrestling for each of our a wrestlers.
The coaches at Air Academy encourage the kids to fall in love with their sport and to take it as far as they can. The sport of wrestling builds, determination, integrity, character, and most of all the will to win both on and off the mat.
"Once you've wrestled, everything else in life is easy."
