Welcome to the official website of the Rising Knights Wrestling Club. Our mission is to teach the sport of wrestling to youth. We are associated with, and conduct our practices at, Davenport Assumption High School. Therefore, we also desire to create a feeder program to maintain the State Championship caliber of the Davenport Assumption High School Wrestling Program.
The Rising Knights Wrestling Club teaches an attacking, and fundamentally sound, style of wrestling.
For those less experienced wrestlers, there is a beginners practice, which focuses on: stance, movement, proper takedown steps and finishes, defensive basics on the feet, breakdowns from the top position, half-nelson pinning technique, and proper escape techniques.
For those with more experience, and/or a desire to compete at tournaments, there is an advanced group. This group continues to build upon an attacking, solid, style of wrestling that is initiated at the beginner level. However, the number of techniques expand to develop competitive wrestlers. The advanced practices include live wrestling and conditioning. Lastly, members of the Rising Knights Coaching Staff will be present at tournaments throughout the season as a resource for the club wrestlers.
"New", this year to the Rising Knights Wresling Club is the addition of an all girls wrestling group. The opportunities, and demand, for females has been significantly increasing. The Rising Knights Wrestling Club recognizes this demand, and is supportive. The girls will be able to integrate in with the advance and beginners as always, but will also have at least one practice per week on their own.
