Sports and Competition. It is as old as humankind.

Two contestants, one victor.

Wrestling is recorded as one of the oldest sports known to man and one of the original events in the Olympics; Pure and disciplined. With a heavy focus on nutrition, self-accountability, mental toughness, and physical excellence, it is no wonder why this sport is an amazing opportunity generator for any child involved in the sport. Wrestling prepares a child for a successful adulthood.

Spokane Wrestling is a not for profit organization based out of West Central Community Center. The program’s sole purpose is to offer wrestling instruction to any child who wants to participate regardless of money. Every child who enters the program is given a free pair of shoes, workout shirt/shorts, wrestling uniform, and headgear. This is provided at Little to No Charge to the child or parent.

With an open arms and open heart policy, we accept kids of all ages from all walks of life. Our goal is to provide a safe environment, while teaching the fundamentals of wrestling and life. Children who have entered the program are encouraged to always do their best, respect those around them, staying positive and to believe in themselves

Spokane Wrestling created the Hot August Nights Outdoor Wrestling Tournament to offset the costs of operating a cost-free program for our kids, while providing a fun environment for all the wrestlers in the Northwest to participate in.

The costs of new equipment, mat maintenance, insurance and other miscellaneous expenses increases every year. A successful and profitable tournament is a 100% community winner for all involved, especially the children.

This will be our 3rd year running this tournament. As of now, we are the largest outdoor wrestling tournament in the Northwest. After this year, we will be the largest outdoor tournament in the nation.

Now is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of what we believe will be the next Hoopfest of Spokane.

Warm regards,

Mike Pursel, Head Coach of Spokane Wrestling
