The Installation Management Command-Europe Youth Sports Wrestling Showdown was held at the Wiesbaden Fitness Center.


About 70 volunteers, including  members of the Wiesbaden High School wrestling team, supported the event as coaches, referees, scorekeepers, meet administrators, helping set up and clean up.

“It was one of the best events for volunteer turnout that I have seen,” said Ronnie Pineda, CYSS Sports and Fitness clinician. “Without the support of the community volunteers, this event wouldn’t have happened or gone so well.”
