Michigan Xtreme has started a SILVER PROGRAM (3rd-8th Grade) in the Southwest Region. This means that on Monday and Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. Certified Michigan Xtreme coaches will be having practices at Battle Creek Lakeview High School. These practices are intense and fast paced. This is not a program for beginning wrestlers. College wrestling, and high school coaches will be running the practices. The Silver Head Coach is Mike Gancer a 2 year starter at Olivet College. The cost per individual has been dropped from the original price of $350 to $200. This is for five months of training, November through March. Team Based discount programs are also available upon request. If you or any of your kids are interested please contact Max Pennock, Associate Regional Director.
