New for the 2018-2019 school year, wrestling is now offered as an after school activity at The Learning Center Charter School.
Wrestling Club is a USA Wrestling affiliated club that will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays starting in November from 3:30 – 5:30 pm. Competition will be at USA Wrestling Folk Style Wrestling events across the mountain region. The club is under the direction of Head Coach, Mike Catuto, and Assistant Coach, Sean Bain. It will be held in the Gymnatoriam on the charter school campus in Murphy.
Catuto said, “I’m very excited to be part of this program start up. The sport of wrestling teaches a variety of skills that will last far beyond the wrestler’s school age years.” He added, “Wrestling is both an individual and team sport at the same time which helps build self confidence and camaraderie.”
The new club is open for both boys and girls at the school.
