American University Wrestling Clinic to raise funds for Oklahoma tornado relief



American University wrestling team, in conjunction with the DC Athletic Club, Hustle & Muscle Mat Club and Wrestling to Beat the Streets DC, will host a wrestling clinic for all ages on Saturday, June 15 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to raise money for victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes.

“After seeing the impact and devastation of the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma we really felt like we needed to do something to help this community rebuild,” said Head Coach Teague Moore. “Oklahoma has such a rich wrestling history, and we felt like offering this clinic would be a great way to show our support to those in need.”

The clinic will be held in AU’s Meltzer Wrestling Room in Bender Arena and is open to individuals of all experience levels from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., lunch will not be provided. The American University coaching staff, two-time NCAA Champion Wade Schalles and two-time NCAA All-American Steve Fittery ’11 will serve as instructors for the clinic. All area wrestling teams and clubs are also welcome to attend. Registration will take place beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday.

Donations collected at the clinic will aid the Red Cross relief effort in Oklahoma. Suggested donations for the clinic are $100 and checks should be made payable to the American Red Cross. If you cannot attend the event and would like to make a donation, please send your donation to American University Wrestling, Bender Arena, 4400 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20016. The clinic aims to raise at least $5,000 to support the relief effort. Moore, along with Assistant Coach Kyle Borshoff, will hand deliver the funds to the Red Cross at the USA Wrestling World Team Trials in Stillwater, Okla. from June 20-22.

Cradle Gear will be sponsoring t-shirts as a thank you gift for all attendees who pay the suggested donation amount of $100. The t-shirts were created for the victims of the tornadoes, with all proceeds from the shirts aiding the relief effort. To view the shirts, click here.

Attendees participating in the clinic must show a USA Wrestling card, those who do not have a USA Wrestling card are welcome to attend to watch and take notes. Due to facility renovations in Bender Arena showers and locker rooms will not be made available to participants at the conclusion of the clinic, please arrive in workout attire.
