We are gearing up for an exciting season of youth wrestling. We are excited to announce that Kevin Lepola will serve as our head coach for youth wrestling this season. Kevin has an extensive background in coaching and participating in wrestling. He has been a wrestling coach of all ages since 1997.
Kevin is ASEP Coach Certified and also holds a bronze level coaching certification through USA Wrestling. He is a former competitive wrestler and competent in teaching proper techniques and safe training. Kevin just recently moved to Northwest Arkansas from Kodiak, Alaska where he was the head coach for Kodiak Kid Wrestling Club, assistant coach for Kodiak High School, and also helped coaching at the Kodiak Middle School.
We are excited for Kevin to lead our program. Our club was one of the first in Arkansas and has had great success and we plan to build on that success. Just a few of the clubs achievements are: four time Arkansas State Team runner up, multiple state champions, six national level championships, and fifteen national level finalists.
