 Durham Wrestling Club Code of Conduct


Welcome to the Durham Wrestling Club. Our Club places great importance upon helping young student-athletes by involving them in an athletic program which builds character, self-esteem and emphasizes team work. Discipline, hard work, and cooperation act as the foundation of this effort. In that vein we have developed these standards by which we expect each player and parent to abide by.
