Pinning Down Autism Wrestling Meet – Ottawa County

6:00 – 8:30 pm

Allendale Middle School Pinning Down Autism Wrestling Meet

The Spring Lake Youth Wrestling and Allendale Youth Wrestling Teams will be hosting an Autism Awareness Wrestling Meet. Hundreds of young boys and girls have learned about wrestling and many have excelled in competition. The nature of this sport affords our young athletes opportunities to build on character, adversity, and empathy. The goal of this special wrestling meet is to raise awareness for Autism and the importance of all sports to remain open and compassionate to every athlete. The Spring Lake and Allendale Team have wrestlers on the Autism Spectrum.  Coach Garth Trask states “Having these boys on our team is a blessing! We all get to see first-hand what strength, commitment, and adversity look like on a much higher level.”  Spring Lake and Allendale Wrestling strive to be “a place where everyone fits”.

Event admission $3.00/$10 per family.  Concessions are available at this event.      Allendale Middle School 7161 Pleasant View Ct, Allendale
