Following an extensive review of the Wrestle4Fun programme by the UWW Development Department and the creation of new videos, the Wrestle4Fun toolkit is available to all who wish to introduce wrestling in schools and to young children.
Wrestle4Fun is designed to provide physical educators, coaches, and recreation and after-school facilitators with a comprehensive guide to incorporating wrestling into their programs. The programme aims to assist Physical Education teachers and/or club coaches in introducing wrestling to children from ages 4 up to 16 in a pedagogical fun approach. This approach is based on the Teaching Games for Understanding concept. Children will be able to learn the sport of wrestling through fun games and activities.
Wrestle4fun was developed and funded by United World Wrestling. Wrestle4fun was designed to meet the needs of children and youth all over the world. The programme consists of a 5-stage resource that is developmentally appropriate and designed to support girls’ and boys’ physical literacy journey. The activities in Wrestle4fun are fun and non-elimination to maximize participation in, development in and/or appreciation for the sport of wrestling as well as other forms of physical activity.
The content and videos are available on the UWW Academy platform: Wrestle4Fun | Academy | United World Wrestling (uww.org). The lessons are located in the Resources section and the videos will be in the Video Library.
There are 5 stages based on developmental level. Each stage is divided into 15 lessons for a total of 75 lessons. Each lesson plan has videos to illustrate the activities and skills. Collectively, there are over 200 videos within the programme.
We hope that these tools will help you in introducing wrestling to young children in a safe/healthy environment. If you would like to take advantage of UWW’s Wrestle4Fun toolkit please contact email@example.com.
