Out in Barnesville, Minnesota, there's a large group of youth wrestlers. Coach Dan Cox is looking to try to solve the problem in getting kids quality mat time, while creating an enjoyable experience to keep the wrestlers in the system and prepare them for the high school program.
On Episode 592 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Cox talks bout how he developed the Northwoods Wrestling League and how it solves an issue with children who want to compete with their friends to get them on the mat and keep them on the mat. Rules involve modified dual meet scoring, allowed moves and disallowed moves that encourage learning.
Competing for quality mat time is the key, as this is geared for the recreational wrestler, not the family who wants to jump right in and chase Tulsa titles. Check out the breakdown of how the NWL works in written form at TheGuillone.com forum.
