Wrestling is not a game It is a martial art stressing overall fitness (mind, body and spirt). Our goal is to prepare young men and women for life’s wide variety of struggles and challenges. We teach technique, leverage, sportsmanship, and cunning intelligence. It teaches discipline, persistence, focused thinking, and ignoring physical discomforts, and gives a profoundly enlivening -- and ultimately transformational outcome - for those who stick with it. They learn to be the best they can be, by becoming the landlord of their mind and body – and being a force of nature for overcoming difficult obstacles in whatever form they come.
All of our athletic programs competed in the Potomac Valley Athletic Conference (PVAC). CESJDS athletes have gone on to compete at the Division I, Division II, and Division III college levels.
