SUNNYVALE YOUTH WRESTLING LEAGUE PARTNERS AND SPONSORS
Sunnyvale Wrestling Club believes in offering extensive co-curricular programing for all students in elementary, intermediate and high school. The term "co-curricular," is used to describe the belief that school-related activities are not beyond the curriculum, but actually work in conjunction with the curriculum to build well-rounded individuals. It is further believed that student involvement in school-related activities create learning opportunities that foster skill development, team-building, commitment, responsibility, follow-through and character development.
The strength of Sunnyvale Wrestling Club's programs is dependent on participation. Strong co-curricular programing in Sunnyvale is dependent on all students being encouraged to become actively involved in at least one school-related activity each school year and programing being wrapped into the school system. Sunnyvale Wrestling Club's introduction of an elementary wrestling league that will include five Sunnyvale School District elementary schools is the beginning of this programing, and possibly will serve as a model. This will hopefully open the door for Sunnyvale School District to increase opportunities to students through an extensive co-curricular program, that would have the potential to increase and include a wide range of school-related activities to encourage student participation, such as:
Visual and Performing Arts: drama, oral interpretation, art, speech, debate, forensics, choral, music, band, orchestra, dance and poster contests.
Athletics: baseball, football, track, softball, swimming, diving, water polo, soccer, volleyball, basketball, cross country, tennis, wrestling, gymnastics and golf.
Curricular: Odyssey of the Mind, History Day, Science Fair, Spelling Bee, Mock Trial, Mathematics, Engineering and Science Association (MESA), Future Farmers of America (FFA), yearbook, journalism, Academic Decathlon and essay contests.
This is what our local, non - profit, all volunteer, wrestling club wants for our community. We see this elementary school league as more than just wrestling but the beginning of free, after school, co-curricular programing for our entire city.
