The Grays Harbor College wrestling team is inviting local students to learn more about the sport.
Only returning to Grays Harbor at the beginning of 2016, the sport had been off the college schedule for 30 years. The school competes in only a 12-school conference, and is one of only six two-year colleges among the near-150 schools in the conference.
With the small conference, the local classes provide an opportunity for local students to get into the program early before attending GHC.
The Choker Wrestling Club is open to boys and girls starting in January.
The Chokers say that the club will run at the Choker Wrestling Center inside the Shoppes at Riverside.
“The club is primarily geared to provide elementary school aged and middle school aged youth with an opportunity to participate in and learn the fundamentals of wrestling in a positive and fun environment.”
Classes will run through the week, split between 1st-4th graders and 5th-8th graders.
5th through 8th graders – Monday and Wednesday – Time: 7 to 8pm
1st through 4th graders – Tuesday and Thursday – Time: 7 to 8pm
The classes cost $100 per student.
