    Dear Future Takedown Wrestling Club Members:

    I want to welcome you to Takedown Wrestling Club. We are a sanctioned Minnesota USA Wrestling Club for kids of all ages and skill levels.  Takedown Wrestling Club will demonstrate a solid program that focuses on technique, conditioning, hard work, discipline, and of course, fun. I believe the final result will produce successful athletes on and off the mat. I was very fortunate to grow up in a club that focused on this same philosophy. My coach’s goal was to build champions, but more than that, to build wrestlers of tremendous character. He held us to high standards when it came to how we carried ourselves as individuals.  My goal is to exceed your expectations and help guide kids down a wonderful and rewarding path.

    The great thing about wrestling is that it is for everyone, of every size, weight, and gender. Each athlete has the potential to succeed depending on the time and dedication they put in. A young person involved in wrestling can be expected to display increasing self-confidence and appreciation of their self-worth, and develop analytical and adaptive skills. This aspect contributes to the development of life-long patterns of responsible behavior including respect for others.

    Takedown Wrestling Club coaches will travel to various tournaments throughout the year to coach and put together dual teams for select tournaments.  I believe in building a team atmosphere not only for the athletes, but for the parents as well. I look forward to working with all of you to make this a great season. With your help, we will turn central Minnesota into a nationally recognized wrestling power-house. 

    I look forward to seeing you at practice,

    Joe Ciardelli
