    CUSAWC Dan Nelson Jan. 8th

    CUSAWC will be hosting our Dan Neson Folkstyle Tournament this Sunday. Reminder that we will be using madison block weights. We will weigh the kids in between 7:30-8:30 and put them in blocks of 4, so doesn't matter if Billy weighs 79.8 or 80.2, because wrestlers will be put in 4 man round robins with guys closest to their weights. Registration is on Trackwrestling here: http://s200.trackwrestling.com/tw/opentournaments/MainFrame.jsp?newSession=false&sport=wrestling&TIM=1483449961065&pageName=&ie=false&frameSize=963 This tournrament is a part of the Gladiator Series and there is some good wrestling going on in the fieldhouse!

Under the direction of head coach Tony Ersland and assistant coaches Jake Sueflohn and Tyrel Todd, the Purdue wrestling program turned a new corner.

    Elementary Dual Team Questions

    Dual meets for the elementary guys is an awesome experience and has done wonders for programs I've been involved with...but it has also been nightmarish at times. I think the issue with dual leagues is that you have to start putting rules in place. After you set the rules, then you have to trust that people follow the integrity of the rules. Jim Watkins is the head coach at Calumet High School and has always been a mentor of mine. I've repeated his phrase often, "It's always right to do the right thing. It's not always easy to do the right thing....but it's always right" For example, as we look at the history of elementary dual tourneys in Indiana, there's been situations where Team A might have not have had enough kids in their club to compete, so they picked up a couple local kids from surrounding schools to help complete their lineups. Then Team B would do the same, but would pick up a couple kids to 'complete their lineup' that accidentally were multiple time state champions. Now here's the tough part....how do you set the rules or guidelines for these situations? If Team A is a couple kids short of filling a lineup and the kids on Team A have a couple friends in neighbor schools that don't have a dual team, I think it's great that they're growing the sport by including others to fill their team. If Team B has enough kids (or even if they don't!) and they go searching for elementary killers so they can pound other local teams, then I think that shows a lack of integrity. There are many examples of things like this when dealing with elementary wrestling. One person says in this thread, "What do you do with 6th graders and 3rd graders that weigh 80?" I've been lucky enough to run some rooms that have had some tough hombres in them. Kyle Ayresman, Stevan Micic, Sean McMurray, Jason Tsitrsis, Eric Roach, Mitch Sliga, Cody LeCount could all wrestle the guy 3 yrs older than them, or 20 lbs bigger when they were in elementary school. In fact, it was probably better for them if they did to that. (I think there's 19 IHSAA State Championships in that group of elementary guys!). That doesn't mean everyone is supposed to wrestle older bigger. Carmel USA ran a freestyle duals tourney last spring. I was asked by all 5 teams that entered the tourney, "do we have to have a team made up of only kids from our schools?". My answer was, "we're trying to put a competition together so kids can wrestle freestyle in a dual format. If you come with an all star team of killers, you will murder every team there. You'll get a $2 medal and I will publicly taunt you in front of many people." (ha!) We intentionally reached out to schools that we know have integrity and it was an amazing event. CUSAWC is currently in their third year of our Youth Wrestling League. We split all of the kids into 4 teams (we have about 80 this year). We have practices on Mon/Wed and in November, we have 'competitions' on Monday nights. There are no weigh ins and zero parent coaches. On days of competition we have coaches match kids up from both teams so there is as quality of wrestling as we can try to get. Our goal of YWL is to provide a place for all elementary guys to learn about the sport, improve they physical skills, and have a great time. We have put together an elementary team from guys in our YWL. We are hosting small triple dual elementary meets once a month. I believe that they are full for Nov/Dec.

    Carmel USA Wrestling Club Camp 4/26 & 4/27

    With our short notice on this camp, we've got a nice group of kids signed up for this weekend. The first session will be technique with Mitch showing his elbow pass to single and then how to transition that to a turn (or breakdown for folkstylers). The second session on Saturday will be a lot of live wrestling. We'd like to wrestle matches in freestyle and talk about scoring and strategy. The third session will be finishing takedowns and starting turns, with live situations at the end. Please contact us if you would like to attend of if you have any questions. ependosk@ccs.k12.in.us 317.701.1512

    Carmel Freestyle Duals

    Because of lack of numbers in the k-7 group we have shut it down for that age group. We now have 6 teams in the 7-12 age group and are opening it up for 4 more teams. It's honor system on weigh ins this year. We hope this makes it easier for everyone and not taken advantage of. We are excited about what this could grow into. We think we can run 5 duals on complete mats and be done by 1:00. Please contact me as soon as possible if you can get a 10 man team. ependosk@ccs.k12.in.us 317.701.1512

    Carmel Freestyle Duals

    We are accepting applications to our Freestyle Dual tourney on Apr. 13th. Our goal is to give a team setting while wrestling freestyle. We have created modified age/weights for it easier for local clubs to fill a team. We are setting the limit of 6 teams in both age groups. We will get 5 duals in and we expect to finish quickly with smaller team sizes, so we hope to get some exhibition matches. There are only a couple spots left in both divisions. Here is the link to the event: http://www.iswa.com/wp-content/uploads/Carmel-Freestyle-Duals.pdf There is a typo on the website. Weight classes are as follows: Grades K-7 50, 66, 68, 76, 84, 92, 100, 110, 120 175 Grades 7-12 105, 115, 125, 135, 145, 155, 165, 180, 200, 285 Also, CUSA Wrestling Club is starting is Spring sessions. Our club is open to anyone. We currently have wrestlers from 7 different school systems. While we believe that RTCs are a great place wrestle live, we also believe in the importance of developing a system. Our offseason workouts are open to anyone looking to improve there offense/defense, strategy, training habits. Our staff at CUSA has helped supplement the training of over 30 IHSAA Champions. We understand the development from elementary to middle school to high school and eventually college. Please contact us if you have any questions. Ed Pendoski ependosk@ccs.k12.in.us

    CIA's weekend

    We had a great time with Andrew Howe in the room this weekend. There was a great room a partners and technique was top notch. Also thanks to our career pathologist, Coach Truitt. Coach gave us some great insight on picking colleges and what some of the requirements to get into schools could be. He's a great resource for the kids that train with us.

    CIA Fall Newsletter

    Seriously? That's what I get? I will again reiterate...I am a Michigan football fan first and a Big 10 fan second. I can't hate on any Big 10 team during bowl season (now the Irish is a totally different story). I don't even watch the Michigan/ohio state game because of Tulsa Kickoff. After I moved to Indy and got a little closer to Columbus, I have found out that there's not much difference between the yuckeye fans as the irish fans. Michigan Football 2011 BCS Champions, 2012 NCAA probation. That's my prediction. Rich Rod for President!
