Kids State! Wrapping up a well-done season

Georgia Dome

We had three kids go to the state qualifiers, and all three kids earned a spot (1,1, and 3) to go to the Kids State Tournament, held at the Georgia Dome!  Congratulations to Murray, Will, and Jack!

It is quite an event, and a long day, but a good experience for the boys this year.  We did not have any placers, but everyone wrestled hard and had some great wins and hard fought losses.

Thanks to all for a great season, and well done to all the kids who participate, and worked hard, this year.  Stay tuned for upcoming summer camps…

End of Season Party

We have a wonderful season, and we would love for you to join us at 6(ish) this Thursday at the Mellow Mushroom Dunwoody.
Come anytime after 6, we will kickoff the pizza will after 6:30, and wrap up before 8.
If you haven’t already RSVP’d, let us know how many kids/adults so we can order appropriately.
Thanks again for your time and energy over the past months,
John and Chad

North Gwinnet Tournament

We had 9 kids sign up, and 5 first time tournament wrestlers!  It was a great learning experience for all, and how well the kids are understanding both the physical and mental aspects of the sport.

Looking forward to a couple more.

Well done at the Duluth Beginners Tournament

We had a great showing this past Sunday at Duluth Beginners Tournament, with a all six wrestlers placing in their respective brackets (silvers and bronzes)!

A great job by Dorian, Murray, Corey, Aiden, Carter, and Will B!  We had a great mix of tough matches, very competitive nail biters, and some of the best movement (and smiles) that I have seen in a while.

A great start

Well, we have had almost 40 kids (and parents) come by check out the club, and have about 32 that have signed on to the team this year!

There is a good range of ages (~6 to 12) and weights (45 to 145), and a whole lot of beginners this year.

What a great start, and we look forward to getting to know the kids (and them getting to know each other) over the next couple months.

Parents and young wrestlers!

We are excited to officially announce the beginning of the Nava/Breffle 2014-2015 wrestling season! We have a good team of kids returning from last year, and a lot of new faces as well.

There are three upcoming events that you need to know about:

Parents Meeting, October 29th, 2014 at 6:30pm:

If you haven’t had your kid in a wrestling program before, are new to Nava-Breffle, or just want to meet the new coaches, we would love to have you over to the Dunwoody High School wrestling room to talk about the sport, the Nava/Breffle team.  This will be held in the mat room, on the stage behind the main gym.  See the directions page for more information.  If you plan on attending, please reply back stating so (no need to decline).  This is primarily for the parents (no kids activities), though if you need to bring them, they can probably find a way to entertain themselves with 60 feet of mats on the floor…

First Practice: Wednesday, November 5th, 6-7:30pm at Dunwoody High School:

Practice Schedule: Wednesday and Thursday at 6-7:30pm at Dunwoody High School:

We may be adding a Monday practice after the season starts for those who are wrestling in tournaments (or just want to come), but two practice days a week will be the typical schedule.

Scrimmages and Tournaments – We as a team will schedule a couple of scrimmages during the week, and will participate in a number of tournaments on the weekend (either Saturday or Sunday). These will be throughout the year, ending in February, and will be added to the team calendar when the season starts.

Register Here!

If you haven’t already registered, here is the link to do this, along with a PayPal link to pay club dues.  If you still have questions, feel free to register and hold off on dues until the parents meeting, where we can hopefully address any questions you have.

We are truly excited about a new season, and looking forward to meeting you all!

Looking forward to a new 2014/2015 season!

The Nava Breffle wrestling club had a great season last year, with a lot of new kids, and returning veterans from the previous years.

This year will bring a couple new changes, with two new Coaches heading up the club, Chad Griffith and John Bracey.  Both Chad and I started with our kids at Nava Breffle a couple years ago, and we are excited to head up a new year with a club that has the history and energy that Nava Breffle does.

We will be updating the website with our upcoming schedule in the coming month, so stay tuned for that.  In the meantime, we would love to get you on our mailing list if your interested, or answer any questions you have about the club, the sport, and how all this works.

Finally, we celebrated this last year, but we wanted to say thank you again to Gary Hammond, David Bertrand, and David Winters for their time and leadership in the club over the past years (6 or 8, I forget…).  Your efforts are hugely appreciated.
