Franklin Park, IL – September 27, 2006 – WrestlingGear.Com is working with youth, high school and college coaches to put together a unique program to help coaches “Get Ready for the Mat!” In addition to several sessions on technique, there will be sessions on how coaches can improve their team’s results both on and off the mat.
“I think we have put together a unique program of coaches and wrestling leaders who will talk about ideas on goal setting, marketing, rewarding athletes, and more. It won’t be just another technique clinic. Also, coaches will be able to visit tables of wrestling top manufacturers including Matman, adidas, Asics, Brute, Cliff Keen, and Action Atheltics Mats.”
All the proceeds from the clinic will be given to The Smile Train, an organization that helps kids with cleft lips. A cleft lip is a condition where the top of the lip does not form properly during pregnancy. A cleft lip can be corrected with surgery. WrestlingGear.Com has already raised over $3,000 during their fundraiser in May.
“We are looking forward to helping kids who were born with a cleft lip that might otherwise have to live with this fixable facial birth defect. With our National website and our local clinic we can help build awareness about cleft lips and help raise money to help children,” says Jeff Pape, owner of WrestlingGear.Com, whose son was born with a cleft lip.
