    Idea Should I Wrestle?

    I'm a sophmore in high school and i weigh about 103/104. I'm in pretty good physical shape, but very little muscle. I usually do theater, but I'm not in any shows until December. I have been thinking about doing a sport, and I've spoken to a wrestler. He says that my weight is perfect since they need someone wrestling in that weight class. However, my parents are not so sure about letting me wrestle. I have a few questions:

    Would it be too late to start wrestilng junior year or should i start now?
    The season starts mid november. How should I get in shape?
    Should I speak to the coach about this? I have a few conflicts with practices if I decide to wrestle

    My input is, if you want to wrestle for more than one year and you want to have some success, start now. What I have seen is that most wrestlers spend the first year learning the basics, that second year learning to put those basics into practice, and the third year is when everything starts to come together on the mat. If you try it and stick with it, you won't regret it. Good luck, whatever your decision is. Make the decision that's best for you.

    ^^^geek, hit right on with it. I find that most ppl that don't wrestle have little to no actual proof of their argument. if you were to approach me about joining I would facilitate whatever I can within reason to get you mat time. as long as my facilitating you does not hinder any of my other wrestlers it would be a problem. I would tell you go out now and put up with the learning curve for atleast 2 months than decide how much you really want to wrestle. you also have alot of wrestling you can do after the school season ends and club wrestling starts.

    Wrestling isn't something you do when you can fit it into your schedule. It requires 100% commitment during the season and some off season work as well. If you decide to go out for wrestling and stick with it, you will find it one of the most rewarding things you can do in high school. But you owe it to yourself, your teammates and your coach to work hard, show up for practice, and strive (as they say in the Army) to be the best that you can be. Good luck.
