Welcome to Our Club
When I founded Ringers in 1987, it was for the express purpose of improving Milwaukee area wrestling by getting the best-in-the-area training in structured practices.
Wrestling is a sport I am passionate about and in which I wanted to share proper training to improve the quality of wrestling in the area. To be true to the heritage of Milwaukee I named it Ringers from the German word for wrestler- Ringer.
It was a bit different in 1987. Practices were free, I was the only coach, we only trained Freestyle and Greco, we had one season and it was spring, we had one age group and it was high school, and we had one location and it was the Old Gym at Marquette University.
We have grown and improved in many areas, but the goal is still the same- provide wrestlers with a process that leads to improved performance and a greater love of the sport. And in every year, every season, and every practice we do just that.James T. Schmitz – Founder and Club President
