Great Podcast!!

I am a mother to two wrestlers and I have gotten some great information from this podcast! I love listening to every episode that comes out! I wish I could pick Jeff’s brain for advice on my boys so I’ll just keep listening. 👍🏻

Fun Listening and Very Informative

This is a great podcast for ANY wrestling parent. The landscape of youth wrestling; like many others sports, is constantly evolving. Jeff is extremely knowledgeable and he “walks it, like he talks it.” I look forward to listening to many more of these podcasts in the future. Parenting this sport is extremely challenging. Invisible lines get crossed all the time and we as parents sometimes have to walk back our words or our deeds. I am confident this podcast will help me to be more informed and help in making more knowledge decisions in the future. Great work!
