This invitational tournament was hosted by the Hasbrouck Heights Recreation Department. The Recreation Director is Robert Brady.

The Hasbrouck Heights Recreation Wrestling Program was established in the 1970’s for children 6 years old (1st Grade) to 14 years old (8th Grade). Typically, 50 to 60 kids participate annually, with 56 boys participating in the 2006-2007 recreation wrestling program.

The program is funded by the Hasbrouck Heights Recreation Department.

Registration fee is $45 per child and includes uniform, practice uniform, tournament entry fees, insurance and practice/training and supervision.

Wrestlers practice at the Franklin Fitness Center two to three times a week for the 16 tournaments/matches.

The program’s goal is to instill positive values such as goal setting and self-discipline, while at the same time making the sport an enjoyable experience.

The Hasbrouck Heights volunteer coaches were: Dan Guido (Head Coach), Darryl Albonico, Steve Dal Cortivo, Alex Garcia, Marty Innis, George Rose and Mark Stefannelli.

Many volunteers helped make this event possible, such as the volunteer parents of the program. Rosanna Guido coordinated the volunteers.
