The Importance of Drilling

Recommended Posts

I read the blog post and I agree.  It's a shame more high school coaches don't follow those principles.  I always tried to impress them upon the last few coaches I was an assistant for, but none of them wrestled in college or wanted to listen because they knew better.

I had a freesyle club at ASU where we had invited top young high school wrestlers. They didn't like my demanding they do a lot of drilling. This was in 1996, Sunkist Kids was practicing right before we did. I finally went to Joe Seay who was the head Olympic freestyle coach to talk to them about the importance of drilling. He told them that Joe Gonzales and John Azevedo at CSB drilled a lot more than i was requiring of these kids. No more complaints about the amount of drilling. Two 3-time state champs came out of that group.
