CVWC seeking Future Stars

The Cowichan Valley Wrestling Club is continuing its efforts to get more young people involved in the sport with the second year of its Future Wrestling Stars program this spring.

The grassroots wrestling program is for young athletes ages 4-8 and provides an introduction to the sport.

"We ran it for the first time last year and it was a big hit," said CVWC head coach Nick Zuback.

Beginning April 28, Future Wrestling Stars runs on Monday evenings from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at Queen of Angels School.

The CVWC has had massive success in recent years, sending several athletes to Island, provincial and national championships. The growth of the programs for younger wrestlers included an elementary-age tournament at Duncan Christian School in March.
