Our Vision

Myrmidons is an off-season wrestling club designed to focus on Folkstyle, Freestyle, and Greco Roman wrestling, advanced through basic instruction/technique, drilling, live wrestling, and conditioning. The coaches would like to emphasize the importance of this program with our D-East (9th -12th), LMS (6th -8th), and youth (K – 5th), but we encourage wrestlers from all areas to attend. Myrmidons also builds camaraderie amongst its members and focuses on the concept of “team” and “strength in numbers.” The best wrestlers participate in year round training and competition.  Here is your opportunity to become more skilled in your sport!

Myrmidons Wrestling Club begins its official Spring/Summer TBD. Joe Horvath, Darrin Cummings, Billy Heemer, Kyle Chandler and Eddie Draves serve as the program coaches.

Myrmidons by J.C. Boyle

Aeacus, king of Aegina and son of Zeus, had no citizens in his kingdom. He prayed to Zeus as he looked at an ant hill, "Please remember that I am your son, and was made a king of your sacred island that you created to honor my mother Aegina. When Sisyphus told a river god that you had eloped with her, you turned her into an island. Please Father Zeus, send me citizens to populate your island and make them skilled in warfare so this island will be protected!" Then Aeacus went back to his palace. Soon his son Telamon yelled, "Father, Father! There are many people outside looking for you!" The people were called the Myrmidons after ants (myrmi). Achilles took 50 ships with 50 Myrmidons each to the Trojan War.
