Wrestling with Character is one of a kind program that should be the standard for all youth programs regardless of sport or activity. Coach Murphy’s philosophy on character and attitude is a foundation that carries over to all aspects of our young wrestler’s life. The time, energy and passion Coach puts into the program is contagious. He truly cares about the athletes and parents on his team and his desire to see them succeed is evident. We are proud to tell others we are a part of this program and could not recommend it more.

In a world with daily stories regarding poor sportsmanship, selfish teammates and corrupt coaches or programs, it’s comforting to know our son has a positive coach role model in his life helping guide him and demonstrating what commitment to himself and his team truly means.

This is our first year with Wrestling with Character and it has been an amazing experience for my son. He has been in two different much larger clubs before and was treated like a number rather than a unique person and wrestler. Under coach Murphy, every kid is treated just as special as the next. There are always a room full of coaches at each practice which allows for more 1 on 1 time with each wrestler.

The practices are also well planned with great structure. The coaches know the kids individually & celebrate their successes. Tournaments are not a focus unless that is your goal. The focus is more on developing young athletes into stong, confident, and respectful people.

One thing that has really hit home for us is the camaraderie between the wrestlers. They support each other, cheer for one another and are developing friendships. This club is one of a kind and I can not wait to see my son grow and develop this year and hopefully for many years to come.

There are a lot of youth wrestling clubs around, and even more youth sports available for kids to participate in, but none of them offer more than Coach Murphy and Wrestling With Character! My sons haven’t received so much individual coaching and technique development in any other activity!

And, as a parent, I absolutely love Coach Murphy’s passion for his mission, which is much bigger than winning tournaments or even developing champion wrestlers, it’s about creating great young men and women, and helping them develop outstanding character. Wrestling With Character is definitely worth looking into if you are looking for a great way to help your child develop skills and character at the same time.
