As a youth coach, ( grades k-6) I wanted to get some of your views on how many matches these kidds should get.
My own kid has been averaging about 50 a year and he is a 5th grader. ( except this year due to an illness he only got one tourney in).
This year after the season he practice with the county frestyle but did not get to wrestle a freestyle tourney.
I have seen kids with 140+ down to kids that only get about 20 at the varsity level. The kids with the more matches are only wrestling and not playing ather sports. I personally do not agree, I think they are to young to focus on one sport and can burn out.
