UPDATE: Evergreen Elementary has agreed to allow the team to use school busses for the competitions. That cuts the need in half, which means we reached our goal! Thank you to everyone who supported.

Katherine Smith Wrestling Club operates out of Katherine Smith Elementary School in the Evergreen School District in San Jose, CA. Katherine Smith School serves a wide range of diverse students from an urban neighborhood in a high poverty area. Katherine Smith is a Title I school with eighty-two percent of the population is receiving free or reduced lunch and over sixty-seven percent are second language learners. Katherine Smith Elementary School is a New Tech Network, a Demonstration site for Project Based Learning and P21 Exemplar school. As an innovative school wrestling became part of the after-school co-curricular programming options during the Spring of 2017. In the Fall of 2017, Katherine Smith joined the Sunnyvale Youth Wrestling League (SYWL) for competitions and the league finals at Fremont High School. The ability to compete in the league was due largely in part of the school’s support of the program. For the 2018 season, the club needs financial support with the increased cost of transportation. Sunnyvale Wrestling Club in partnership with Katherine Smith Wrestling Club is raising money for the cost of transportation for the 5 events that Katherine Smith will be participating in. Currently, the estimated cost for the bussing is $800 a trip, which comes out to $4,000. 

Please consider donating to the Katherine Smith Wrestling Club to help offset the cost of transportation.

Thank you to everyone who has donated. We appreciate your support. These programs are bigger than wrestling, they provide a connection to school that doesn’t exist today in the way we operate youth athletics. Sunnyvale Youth Wrestling League was designed in the hopes to positively impact the life trajectory of everyone involved and your donation has helped us achieve that.

The pictures to the left our from last years program. We also want to thank K. Smith Elementary for starting this program. We are up to the task of fighting to make sure it continues.
