An article from the Cedar Rapids Gazette reports about our friend Jim Brown and his idea to get kids excited about wrestling, by giving free tickets to school kids for one of amateur wrestling's most inspiring and exciting events: the Saturday morning sessions of the NCAA Division III wrestling tournament.

Here's an opportunity to help our sport grow at the grassroots level. If we want a future crop of great wrestlers (and wrestling fans,) then we need to plant the seeds at the elementary and junior high levels. You can also get some great ideas from Jim's campaign that you can use to promote our sport in your area. Jim would be an excellent source of advice on these matters, too.
