In addition to the Copper and Bronze Certification courses, USA Wrestling has the HEADS Up Concussion in Youth Sports available to anyone through its membership system. This course, which was developed by the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), is aimed to keep children and teen athletes safe by helping coaches and parents recognize, respond to, and minimize the risk of concussion or other serious brain injury.

Fireworks Stand in the Simpsonville
Last year for 4th of July holidays SC-USA Wrestling had to relocate its Fireworks stand to Greenville by Portofino's Italian Restaurant. Thanks to Helen, our TNT representative's hard work and the City of Simpsonville, we are now back to our previous location. Our Fireworks Stand in Simpsonville to help raise over $2000 per year for wrestlers going to Fargo or Kids Nationals. The stand will be back at the Walmart Market Place off of Hwy 14. 115 Hwy 14, Simpsonville, SC 29681.
Last year's location showed a significant drop in sales. This is why we requested to be moved from that location.
Wrestlers and their families can sign up to work 1 day at the Fireworks Stand. Athletes must be !6 years old to sell fireworks. We will provide training. When all sales are complete after July 6th and we figure out how much was made, Then we will divide the proceeds by 14 days. Each wrestler will receive the daily amount for the days worked. Parents can earn credit for their athlete especially those under 16 years old. We will have a schedule for everyone to sign up to work 1 day. If days are still left open then families can sign up for an additional day. You will need a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 workers in the stand at one time. On June 25th, the day of setup and July 6th, the day of takedown, we will need 4 volunteers.
In the past we have had athletes from Walhalla to Rock Hill participate and down to Walterboro. The stand will be open from June 25th through July 6th. Hours will be from 10 am to about 10 pm each day or until the last customer is served. Please contact Robert Delgado via email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you are wanting to participate . When you volunteer the dates and times will be posted on this websites calendar.
