Belleville Wrestling: Keep “The Family” Alive


Dear Friends and Family,

My name is Jay Isip and I am a Belleville High School Wrestling alumnus that has recently become actively involved with the Belleville Wrestling team. I wrestled during the years 1996 – 2000 and proceeded to stay active in wrestling for over 15 years. Training with an array of professional athletes, entering innumerous tournaments, and competing at different levels; I have learned so much throughout my experience and would love to help the younger generation excel. I had so much support in my career, and there is nothing more I would rather do then support the next. However, I cannot do it alone. . .

As you may know, school systems are seeing a financial decline that is affecting the financial support to many individuals and teams. Among those affected is the Belleville Wrestling team who is beginning lose its sponsorship. For this reason, I, along with help of other wrestling alumni, recently took the initiative to work with the team and run free open-mat clinics during the “off” season because we feel that the students/athletes should always improve their craft by staying active throughout the year.

With the help of your generous donations, we would love to send the team to other wrestling clubs and attend tournaments to help each individual wrestler gain as much experience as possible and help them reach their maximum potential. Your sponsorship would help defer the costs of traveling expenses, tournament registrations fees, wrestling club memberships, athletic gear and equipment and, hopefully, attend higher-level USA Wrestling tournaments.

Some of us were not the “smartest” students in class nor were we known for our educational achievements, but if it were not for Belleville Wrestling, we would not be where we are today. Wrestling guided us to become better students, workers, and life outside the mat. Wrestling is not just a sport, but also a way of life that has turned us all into the men (and women) we never knew existed and has shown us how to deal with both good and bad times. Everyone does not just form a bond as teammates, but we become a family. The love shared on and off the mat is incomparable to anything we have ever been a part of. If you are an athlete or former wrestler I am sure you can agree.

We love this sport, this culture, and most importantly, we love Belleville. We want to keep “The Family” alive and your support will make all the difference in the world.

Thank you and God Bless.
