Wrestling season demands toughness. Each season brings ups and downs, wins and losses, good practices and bad, injuries and frustration. Your response doesn’t just build character it reveals it. You have to be tough to be successful. You have to be stubborn about your goals. Expect adversity, deal with adversity and finally overcome adversity.

The wrestlers on top of the podiums in March believe that no matter what happens during the season it has made them stronger. Maybe you are not 100%. Maybe you have been beaten and bruised. Great wrestlers are the most stubborn about their goals. They believe that no matter what happens (losses, sick or even injured) they will win state and national titles in March. They are tough and continue to build Mental Toughness throughout the ups and downs of a long season.

Toughness isn’t optional to be successful in wrestling. It is mandatory.
