The Harding wrestling program funding was cut before last season.
Thanks to donations by many the team was reinstated and exists solely on self-funding.
For the second year the Bridgeport Police Department is sponsoring a mini-camp at Harding High.
The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 25, Wednesday, July 26, and Thursday, July 27.
Out-of-town wrestlers with a USA Card are invited.
We ask only that each wrestler donates.
Donations can be made in person at camp, by check to Adversity to Prosperity )a local nonprofit) that has an account for the funds to be spent ONLY on the wrestling program, or on our Save Harding Wrestling Gofundme Page.
Harding High is located at 1734 Central Ave.
Please arrive early to check in before practice begins.
