We started this program in the Fall of 2017. We wanted to reward wrestlers for loyalty and commitment. We were not sure if any of our Fall members would take us up on the challenge. The challenge being that wrestlers involved in the Fall Session would be recognized as an IRON MAN if they attend every workout. Wrestlers did get one Mulligan. As of 10/30/17, we have 9 wrestlers qualified. Wrestlers will be rewarded with a custom IRON MAN JACKET. This has been a great program that we will continue and make better
Due the incredible success of the IRON MAN program, we have decided to modify and be included year round. The new 2018 IRON MAN PROGRAM will include: Youth, Spring, Summer and Fall Wrestling Sessions.
During the 10th week of our Fall Session. Korey Kemper, who had not missed a workout, came down with a fever and sore throat. Korey was determined to get to a Tuesday workout. Wendy, his MOM called me to let me know that Korey would be taking his Mulligan. To the displeasure from Korey, who wanted to attend and watch the workout so he wouldn't miss it. He ended up staying home. The next night, Wednesday, Korey was well enough to come in and watch but not participate. He was still sick. By Thursday, he recouped and worked out. That Saturday Korey wrestled in a Tournament and won his class. This whole experience made me realize how important this program was for wrestlers. It does several things; gives wrestlers a goal to shot for, incentive with a reward for hard work and the improvement wrestlers make by because they are showing up every night.

Riley Carlucci, Korey Kemper, Griffin McGreedy, Drew Difilipio, Jordan Carlucci, Brian Farrell, Dom Sackley, William Roddy and Aiden McSheffrey. These Wrestlers had to attend every workout during the 2017 Fall Session while getting one Mulligan. Like they say, "half the battle is showing up". The other half is putting in 100 percent effort while you are there. These guys did.
