Southern Maryland Wrestling Club
Spring 2001 Practice Announcement

26 time National Club Champion, defending 2000 AAU Grand National Club Champion, defending MSWA Folkstyle and Freestyle Club Champion, and defending East Coast Freestyle Club Champion Southern Maryland Wrestling Club holds all-age practice on Tuesday and Thursday between 7:00 and 8:30 pm. Practices will be in the wrestling room at Gwynn Park HS. From I 495, take Branch Ave (MD Rt 5) south from D.C. about 10 miles, turn left on Old Brandywine Road. The school is 3 blocks on the left. Gym entrance is on the right. You can also take MD Rt 301 south about 10 miles past MD Rt 4 until the light before Rt 5. School can be seen from 301 on the right.

Costs: Family dues are $30 per season plus a $20 USAW insurance card. The only requirement we have on members that participate regularly with our club is that they compete for SMWC or unattached at all open tournaments and events. Many Maryland high school state champions and college wrestlers have joined our club over the past 18 years, and many college scholarships have been awarded to wrestlers from this club. This year several club seniors have already received wrestling scholarships.

Type of Training: During the spring, concentration will move slowly from folkstyle into freestyle and Greco-Roman, with new moves shown on a daily basis. By late April, most practices will be freestyle oriented. Tournaments are supported throughout the spring and early summer nearly every weekend.
