Personal Note from Patrick:
"I want to help the Shakopee program and I want to help build your son into the best wrestler that they can be. At their private session, we will work on how to enhance their strengths and minimize their weakness. I want to give them pointers on how to prepare for the big match mentally, and physically and also introduce new skills that have worked for many wrestlers including myself. We will have intense practices with drilling moves that they have learned in the past and introduce new ones that will work for them in the future. We will work on developing their conditioning and of course there will be some fun time at the end of each session."
Practices will run two days a week. Monday and Wednesday nights session 1 from 6:00-7:00 and Session 2 from 7:00 to 8:00. Wrestlers can sign up for both sessions 1 & 2 on the same night. Session 2 on both Monday and Wednesday with have an emphasis on age appropriate weight training and conditioning. If you would like to attend both you are more than welcome. Group size will be limited to 6-8 kids a night. Arrangements can be made for me to work with your wrestler individually.
If you have any questions, or want to register for sesssions, please contact Patrick at PCasey12@winona.edu.
