A huge congratulations to all the coaches and programs we have heard from so far that have been approved for their Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) funding. At first count, there will be over $100,000 in funding going to programs all around the province.
With the changes that have been made to CSJ, the funding is allowed to be used in the fall to help promote the sport ahead of the wrestling season. BC Wrestling is going to be making a big push to grow grassroots wrestling and get more kids on the mat than ever before. We will be helping programs to get into schools to deliver PE Classes starting in September and introduce kids to the sport.
If you have any questions or would like to see wrestling programs delivered at your school, please reach out to the chair of the Grassroots Committee firstname.lastname@example.org
