Santa’s Elves visit the knee-hi program

All of the wrestlers with Elves Tim and Ross and Coach Renny, Dec. 20, 2012.

Santa met with two of Jim Thorpe’s knee-hi coaches recently and gave them tips on what to give the grapplers for Christmas. All of the gifts were things that would help the kids get better on the mat, like duct tape to keep your head from laying on the mat and ear plugs to help you better listen to Coach Renny. The kids had a blast and so did Elf Tim and Elf Ross. Merry Christmas Everyone!

Elf Tim and Elf Ross explain their trip to the North Pole to meet with Santa Claus.
