UFC and the Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada Starting Wrestling Program
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.02.2014



MMA Junkie reports that the UFC, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada and Ultimate Alliance have announced a new partnership to create a wrestling program for youth in the area. The kids will get a chance to train in wrestling to "develop techniques, fundamentals and the mindset to perform successfully in the sport of wrestling as well as teaching discipline, focus, and accountability for daily life."

UFC Vice President of Community Relations Reed Harris said: "The UFC is thrilled to partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada and the Ultimate Alliance to help provide young athletes in the region the necessary resources to succeed in the sport of wrestling and to maximize their fullest potential. Participants of this program will be given exclusive instruction from the best wrestling and mixed martial arts athletes in the world as well as equipment and funding for practice and competition."

UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes and Daniel Cormier were at the event to talk with the kids. They will be the UFC representatives for the program. They are hoping that it will create a bigger, national campaign that can help more of the country's youth learn about the positive influence wrestling can have.

Bryan Lindsey, Volunteer Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Ultimate Alliance, said: "Teaming up with the UFC and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada to coach, develop and mentor the youth of Nevada and the United States has been a vision of mine for years. We are all very excited to work closely together to grow the sport of wrestling to a level we have yet to see in the history of the sport."

The UFC will provide wrestling clinics led by wrestlers, along with financial assistance for the program and training equipment.
