Help Provide a wrestling room for Valparaiso Viking Wrestlers
It's important to provide a safe, dedicated practice area for our boys to nurture and stimulate mental and athletic growth. The wrestling team is the only sport at VHS that does not have its own practice facility. This puts all our wrestlers at a complete disadvantage. They continuously have to move the mats, which puts them at greater risk for injury, not to mention cut into their practice time. In addition, practices are continuously cut short to accommodate for other sports. The wrestlers work incredibly hard to represent Valparaiso, Indiana. They deserve to be recognized and given the same opportunities to succeed, thereby gaining access to scholarships, as every other sport in our school. We are not asking for special treatment, only fair and equal treatment.
We are looking for your support to help get these kids get the wrestling room they deserve.
“This is a sport (wrestling) that has turned many boys into men and many men into leaders. And it is a sport in which you can be a giant regardless of how big you are.” - Carl Albert
