A motivational session is what Class Four students at Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary will receive tomorrow, Wednesday, March 23, as they prepare for this year???s Barbados Secondary Schools??? Entrance Examination.
The final day of the school term will see visiting coach from the University of Chicago, Timothy McGuire, making a presentation on wrestling to the students at 10:00 a.m., at the Government Hill institution.
While it will place emphasis on the contact sport, a key aim of the talk will be to inspire children not only in respect of the May 3 examination, but also as it relates to their journey from primary to secondary school and throughout life.
Tim McGuire, a Division 1 NCAA wrestler (the highest level of national wrestling in the United States) attended and competed for Marquette University in Wisconsin.
He was trained by some of the best wrestlers and coaches in the world, and has had the opportunity to continue working with many of the best coaches, as a coach himself. Mr. McGuire has been involved in Elite wrestling for over 20 years.
The visiting coach has also trained many of the top wrestlers in the United States, and lately has been working hard with the Barbados Wrestling Association to help build a good foundation of wrestling in Barbados and throughout the Caribbean.
In his extra time ???Tim???, as he affectionately called, is consistently working with kids of all ages in schools and in athletics. Living in Chicago, he specifically tries to offer opportunities to underprivileged kids who are looking to be their best self.
According to Tim, his key goals are ???to use wrestling to reach kids and guide them in striving to be the best individual they can be now and as they mature into adulthood???.
