Wrestling

Welcome to Wrestling. Wrestling is a Winter Sport, practices begin in December. It is a part of the EAAB (Eastern Athletic Association for the Blind). The only modification is that athletes are required to remain in contact during their match; when contact is broken, the wrestlers return to the starting position. Wrestling is both an Individual and team sport which builds self-efficacy and social skills in addition to spatial awareness of one's orientation and mobile coordination.
