Wrestling in the Diocese of Cleveland CYO is dedicated to developing the complete young athlete. This means that CYO Wrestling will teach the technical aspects of wrestling as well as social, emotional and spiritual components of being a well rounded young person. The culture of CYO requires that members of the team and coaches be committed to honoring the Rules, Officials, Opponents, Teammates and One’s self. By identifying with the culture of CYO, the young person will see growth not only on the mat, but in daily life as well!
The Diocese of Cleveland CYO Wrestling Team is coached by individuals that have successfully taught the skills of youth wrestling for many years. They have exceeded the standards of coaching in the CYO and are committed to the mission and values of the Diocese of Cleveland. The coaches’ care and commitment to the development of the complete athlete to be more Christ-like in the way they live will be evident at each practice and competition.
If you are in the 5th to 8th grade, JOIN THE TEAM to continue the 50 year tradition of wrestling in the Diocese of Cleveland CYO and enjoy the feeling that comes from challenging oneself to be more than you thought you could be.
