Program Philosophy We expect that each Creekside wrestler strives to be the best that they can be with the tools that they have at hand. While the individual component of wrestling is one of the great and unique aspects of the sport, the Team must and will always come first. Each wrestler must be willing to sacrifice and do what is in the best interest of the Team. They must conduct themselves as gentlemen, in the classroom, on the mat, and in all other aspects of your life. Represent their family, Creekside High School, and your teammates in a positive manner.
