Our Youth Coaching Philosophy

Canton’s youth wrestling program believes in the development and installment of wrestling skills and teams starting at a young age. We have passionate coaches who have been raised through our programs of tradition. We’re excited to have you a part of this journey.

Wrestling provides real-life experiences that build and strengthen the following characteristics:

  • Self-reliance
  • Mental toughness
  • Work ethic
  • Competitive spirit
  • Responsibility
  • Self-discipline
  • Goal orientation
  • Confidence
  • Positive self-esteem
