Wrestling in the Schools
During the month of January, Belau Wrestling Federation (BWF) in coordination with the Ministry of Education (MOE) conducted wrestling activities as a part of our outreach program to a number of schools to include Melekeok Elementary School (MES), Koror Elementary School (KES), Aimeliik Elementary School (AES) and Ngarchelong Elementary School (NES). At the High School level, Emmaus High School continued from last semester to include wrestling as a part of their PE program.
Since the beginning, our approach has been very simple, to inspire every student to have fun and to deliver a healthy program through fitness for all to play. As to date, we have been able to expose wrestling to many students who for the first time are learning new things from stretching, rolling, drills, games, conditioning and other exercises. With the help of the PE teachers and staff from the schools we have been able to team up with our coaches from BWF to be able to deliver our program. Our plan is to expand and reach out to all the schools this year and maybe one day we can see wrestling develop and expand in all the schools.
