Hi Becky,
My son is 9 and has been wrestling for 1 year now.  The winter season is coming to an end in March, but your rec league may have spring wrestling.  We do here in Maryland.
Josh has peripheral vision, but no central vision.  Wrestling is an awesome sport.  The only piece of advice I would have for you is to make sure they pair your son up with someone who will help Noah with the moves.  This should be a nice boy who is just a bit extra helpful, someone who will walk him through the moves.
Wrestling will really get Noah in shape too!

Hi everyone,

My son Noah is 10 and would like to join the local youth wrestling league.  I know that this is a very popular sport for many blind youth because the two wrestling remain in contact with eachother throughout the match.  However,  this is where my knowledge begins and ends!   I was wondering if anyone else has experience with this that could give me some helpful tips for his coach?  I am excited he wants to do this,  it will be great exercise and a chance for him to be a part of a team sport.  I just want to make it as successful as possible!  Thanks!
