Melba Wrestling Club has held spring seasons for Greco and Freestyle wrestling each year for over a decade.
Last week the club began their Folkstyle wrestling season for the second time ever, with a record number of signups.
Melba Wrestling Club reported 21 wrestlers signing up for the season.
Folkstyle is one of three disciplines of wrestling along with Greco and Freestyle.
This form of wrestling is commonly practiced in U.S. high schools, colleges and universities.
“Folkstyle is a more control oriented style,” said coach and club president Jack Richardson Jr. “It is the predominate style of the U.S.A and the same style as seen in junior high and high school.”
The season lasts about four weeks with the last practice on Nov 15.
Young wrestlers will work on techniques, rules, strength and conditioning.
“We play some wrestling games, kids learn a lot of techniques through games,” said Richardson.
