- NEW WRESTLING CLUB FOR SOUTHERN MAINE BASED IN YORK!
Hammerhead Wrestling Systems seeks to provide instruction in all areas of amateur folk style & freestyle wrestling, to prepare athletes for success in the sport of wrestling. This is to be achieved through a proprietary instructional and belt-level system. Much like the martial arts, Hammerhead Wrestling recognizes and ranks skill attainment and progression with award belts similar to those made popular in MMA and the UFC. Open to wrestlers aged 6-18; this program is being held in conjunction with the York Parks and Recreation Department. Each session is open to all area wrestlers regardless of town of residence and will run 8 weeks in the fall, winter, and spring.
