Team GGWC has always fielded a remarkably respectable FreeStyle team for EVERY Gay Games since 1982, and has
always adhered to the Gay Games Mission and principles of Tom Waddell by concentrating on those athletes who will benefit
the most from the experience:
Participation, Inclusion, and Personal Best . This means youth, women, and novices are the egalitarian priority
(as well as being the IRS 501c3 non-profit mission of Team GGWC!).
The coaches of Team GGWC have always taken the task of building the Tradition, Camaraderie, and Pride of its Gay Games
teams very seriously, and have built a family/community that is the envy of many other sports.
Elite wrestlers/grapplers will be required to coach and take leadership/mentoring roles within Team GGWC.
Team GGWC will once again work with WWB and host (Paris) to get inexpensive hostel/hotel housing as it always has in the past
so that all the wrestling/grappling team competitors will room together and be able to afford the experience.
Team GGWC will once again work to coordinate raising the funds for gear, flights, and rooms for those who will need it.
