I'm a teacher and a coach who just moved to Seattle from Florida. I am trying to get wrestling started at my new school here in Seattle. I was able to get the administration to agree to allow me to start the wrestling team this winter (it will only be a club this year as it is our first season and we don't know how many kids will come out for the team), but we don't have funding for a new mat.
My ask: Can anyone help me procure a mat for this winter? I'm looking for any extra strips of mat that you can part with for this season. Obviously beggars can't be choosers, so even if the mat is not in great condition or a full circle, please still reach out (email info at the bottom). Although I can't afford to buy new mats at this time, I'm sure we can workout a payment / donation for used mats.
I do have access to a truck and will pick the mats up myself.
I am desperately trying to grow our sport, and would hate to deny the kids an opportunity to wrestle simply because we don't have mats. Any and all help with this matter is greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Coach Stein
