Xtreme Couture Wrestling Club Xtreme Couture Wrestling Charter Club is designed for dedicated and serious wrestlers looking to advance to the next level. Students will be trained by world class wrestlers in Folkstyle, Freestyle, and Greco-Roman wrestling as well as submission grappling.
OUR MISSION: Our mission is to build a new breed of wrestler by providing our wrestlers with a year round opportunity to train and receive mentorship of the highest quality. Xtreme Couture wrestlers will be provided with the perfect environment in which to progress as wrestlers, individuals, and ultimately to reach the goals they have set for themselves.
OUR PHILOSOPHY: We believe that any wrestler can become a champion with desire and the proper coaching. Becoming a champion at any level involves a strong and devoted commitment. The higher the level of competition, the higher the level of commitment required. To develop a state or national champion takes a serious commitment on both the wrestler and the coach’s part. In developing a state and national champion, we implement the philosophy that a wrestler needs to have an arsenal of varying low and high level moves that can be used as the second, third, fourth, and fifth moves. Using these moves in succession is called “chain wrestling”; our wrestlers’ ability to execute a relentless attack is what will separate Xtreme Couture Wrestlers from the rest. Because we afford our wrestlers year round training opportunities we expect them to compete year round. This is part of the extra commitment Xtreme Couture Wrestlers make to become champions. Xtreme Couture Wrestlers dedication to the Freestyle and Greco season will make them better folkstyle wrestlers, and will also put them on the national scene from which college coaches choose their recruits. There are many intangibles to be gained by training like a champion; all are invaluable in life. Our coaching philosophy is based upon the premise of hard work, commitment, dedication, and discipline. It is upon this foundation that Xtreme Couture Wrestling will forge state champs, national champs, and college graduates.
1) What does Xtreme Couture Wrestling offer?
To begin with, Xtreme Couture offers a year round opportunity for our athletes to train. We are season specific, with four separate sessions to accommodate Xtreme Couture athletes. Our athletes can meet with the staff to plan out the upcoming season’s goals, diets, training schedules, or to just sit down and discuss issues with the coaches who have already confronted them.
2) What is unique about the training and instruction at Xtreme Couture?
We realize that there is more to wrestling than just learning technique. With over forty years of wrestling experience between Eugene Harris, Gray Maynard, and the Xtreme Couture staff, we have designed a coaching method that encompasses all facets of wrestling. Xtreme Couture will have weight programs available that are wrestling specific. We will be able to sit down with our wrestlers and map out their goals for the upcoming season, write out a diet plan to help them compete optimally, or to help them understand the psychology of competing and training. Xtreme Couture can and will help our athletes with virtually anything to reach their goals as a student athlete.
3) Why not just participate in a local kid’s program or at my high school?
A student should be involved in their local or school program while receiving supplemental training at Xtreme Couture. It is Xtreme Couture’s job to meet the needs a wrestler has in order to make him/her a better wrestler, whether he is a youth wrestler learning the sport or a state champion fine tuning his technique. We will provide an environment in which everyone can succeed. We have a vested interest in every wrestler that walks through our doors.
4) What is the difference between camps/clinics and Xtreme Couture?
Camps and clinics are recommended and encouraged. A wrestler can learn a specific clinician’s style or a tune up, but camps/clinics are no substitute for the long term, comprehensive training offered at Xtreme Couture. Your son/daughter will get the individual attention and instruction that is cutting edge. We have a full time staff that is always available as a resource to our wrestlers. The instructors at Xtreme Couture coach technique that is comprehensive and proven to be effective. Our curriculum is composed of high scoring percentage moves used at all levels of wrestling, with an emphasis on subtle details. This is important since long-term success cannot be attained without first developing sound fundamentals.
5) What else can Xtreme Couture offer?
One of Xtreme Couture’s biggest assets is experience. This will benefit athletes looking to wrestle in college. We can answer questions and guide our athletes into a college for their particular goals and interests. Xtreme Couture coaches have been on both sides of the recruiting process, and will help in any way possible. We have relationships with coaches across the country that know us on a personal basis and will look to our club for prospects.
