Doesn’t every program have one? NO. Our system is made up of a focus on high percentage technical skills and purposeful movement. We believe in drilling. We give feedback. We don’t teach fancy clinic moves that don’t work.
We are knowledgeable, trained, and passionate professionals. We believe that coaching is a profession—no, everyone can’t do it. Just because you were an athlete doesn’t qualify you to coach. Just because you love kids doesn’t qualify you to coach. Just because you have done it for a long time doesn’t qualify you to coach. Arrichion coaches are qualified. We understand the sport. We understand how to teach.
Our practices are planned, intensive, and focused. We don’t waste time on coaches’ war stories (if you’ve ever attended camps you know what we mean). We have structure, not chaos (unfortunately what happens in lots of club and school practice rooms). Fun? Not really. (That comes when you win). Rewarding? Always.
From the situation competition in the room to the scrimmages within the club to the state and national competitions we understand how to maximize your potential.
Don’t all clubs and school programs respect everyone? NO. We can’t tell you how many times we get calls from parents who are frustrated because the only one getting attention in the practice room is the winning wrestler. At Arrichion, it doesn’t matter if you are a two-legged marshmallow or a national champ. Champions are made.
We respect workers. As a result, everyone improves.
There are no short-cuts. There is no quick-fix. It takes time, commitment, and the right program. At the end of the day, no matter what anyone might tell you or how trite it sounds, it’s the process that counts.
Why? Well, for one reason we believe that wrestlers (athletes, musicians, etc) are made; they are not born.
We also believe that there are no short-cuts. So, what do we do at Arrichion that makes us different?
It’s simple; let’s cut to the chase.
"I was at the Super 32 Tournament my sophomore year and I was wrestling for a different club. While I was getting warmed up the club coach came up to me and said, "Why are you wearing our club singlet?" I know I wasn't very good, but I had been a member of his club for a long time. He didn’t even know who I was. I left that club and came to Arrichion. From day one the coaches treated me like I was somebody. And I never worked so hard. And that winning thing changed, too; last year I placed 2nd in the high school state tournament." --Joey Baird
