 2017 season  The 35th Year 

On February 28 at Canastota High  School the Club begins it's 35th year.   Practices are from 7:00-8:30 through May. As has been the case for all those years the club teaches and competes in the International Styles,  Greco & Freestyle. The club's clinicians will feature:  TERRY SHOWALTER, PAUL  LEBLANC,  BEN NEW,  TOM MULCHY, DEREK BIGFORD, with guest coaches including JIM HALL.    The club, Competition Coach MIKE LETCHER will also lead a staff of volunteer Bronze Level certified coaches.   This year the club is also encouraging former club wrestlers to return to assist at practices, to give our athletes the best experience possible.

For 2017 the Club will look to increase membership.  This will be a special year, 35 YEARS.  It is an AMAZING  accumplishment to make it and survive.   Sons and Daughters of original Club members and past wrestlers, are now members.   We are looking forward to a renewed schedule, with a possible trip to Montreal in early spring.   A new tournament in Rochester or Massachusetts is also possible. 

The International program will include a trip to Netherlands for the Utrecht Easter tournament and hosting a  Swedish team in the Summer.  That means more GRECO WRESTLING. 

  

 

  PUERTO RICO Results  2016

The club ended the 2016 season with a trip to "fun in the  sun" Puerto Rico, for the annual Copa Sparta Wrestling Tournament on Columbus Day weekend.    Again this year the MVWC is combined with Pin2Win to  and Fulton Wrestling club to form Team CNY.   The group left on October5  and returned October 10 .   Most of the wrestlers  wrestled 2 days at the tournament, which features true International competition.   A number of USA teams , Canadian Teams and teams from the Central-South America  joined the Puerto Ricans in San Juan for the event. The team had several champions with numerous place winners.

Plans are to return in 2017
