At the Go for Gold Foundation, we believe that wrestling is more than just a sport – it’s a way of life that can prepare young men and women for success in all areas of their lives. Through the physical and mental challenges of the sport, wrestlers develop a strong work ethic, discipline, and perseverance that can translate to success in academics, careers, and personal relationships.


Wrestling teaches valuable life lessons that are essential for young people to learn. It teaches them how to set goals, work hard, and overcome adversity. It also teaches them the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship, and how to win and lose with grace.


Furthermore, wrestling is a great fit for kids of all ages and backgrounds. It is a sport that values individual achievement as well as team success, so wrestlers can set and work towards their own personal goals while also contributing to the success of their team.


Through our programs and services, the Go for Gold Foundation aims to make wrestling accessible to all kids, regardless of their socio-economic background. We believe that every child can benefit from the physical and mental challenges of wrestling, and we are committed to providing opportunities for young people to discover their potential and achieve their dreams.



At Go for Gold Foundation, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to participate in sports, regardless of their background or circumstances. We recognize that there are certain barriers that may prevent kids from underrepresented communities, those with disabilities, or other factors that make it difficult to participate in sports.


One of our goals is to make wrestling accessible to all kids, regardless of their situation. We work hard to remove any barriers that may prevent a child from participating in the sport, such as financial constraints or lack of access to equipment and facilities. We believe that every child deserves the chance to experience the benefits that wrestling can offer, including physical fitness, mental toughness, discipline, and character development.


We partner with a variety of organizations to provide access to wrestling programs, clinics, and camps. We also offer scholarships and financial assistance to those who need it, so that every child can participate. We work closely with coaches and instructors to ensure that our programs are inclusive and accommodating too kids with disabilities or other special needs.


We believe that wrestling is not just a sport, but a way of life that can help prepare kids for success in all aspects of their lives. By making wrestling accessible to all kids, we can help build stronger, more resilient, and more confident individuals who are equipped to face any challenge that comes their way.
