WARM UP

Game
Steal The Bacon

Number the wrestling in pairs by size and assign them a number. For example the two smallest kids on the team will be number 1 with one going to team A and one going to team B. The two teams line up on hands and knees facing each other from across the mat.

Using a towel as the “bacon” the coach yells a number. When a wrestler’s number is called they have to crawl as fast as they can to the middle of the mat to try to grab the bacon and bring it back to their side of the mat. The coach can call more than one number at a time, but the bacon must be brought (it can’t be passed).
