What is Spartan Elite?
Spartan Elite is an advanced program for wrestlers looking to bring their abilities to the next level. Elite team membership is by invitation only based on attitude and work ethic demonstrated at practice and tournaments. In the first week of practice wrestlers will be evaluated, and invitations to the team will be given at the end of practice on Wednesday. Wrestlers can also be invited to move up to the elite team at any point throughout the season if their attitude and work ethic warrant it. All elite team members are expected to participate in a minimum of 90% of elite team practices (including the cardio burnout) and 50% of the tournaments. Elite team members are welcome to attend all open practices as well. If you have any questions about the elite team please contact Coach Rivard or Coach Guerra.
