Opportunities for girls to wrestle in competitive tournaments are being created in some of the most enjoyable places.
Have you visited Reno recently?
One of the world’s largest smaller cities continues to provide great sports and entertainment to groups world over.
The hotels are larger than life as well.
If you are a young female freestyle wrestler have you ever heard of Flo Reno World’s Girls Championships?
It’s increasingly becoming a popular tournament.
Let’s meet the director and organizer at worldofwrestling-roller.com.
“My name is Jack Roller, Executive Director of World of Wrestling. Without ever wrestling a match, my life for the past 36 years has been consumed by wrestling. Beginning as a wrestling parent and continued on to become the holder of many positions of authority in Oklahoma wrestling such as regional and state Director of the Oklahoma Kids Wrestling Association. I have successfully directed numerous prestigious national kids wrestling tournaments including two of the largest and most prestigious kids tournaments in the country, the Tulsa Nationals for the past 32 years and for 15 years the largest event in the nation, the Reno Worlds. I have also directed many AAU National Championships.
In 1998, we came to a crossroads when our youngest son, Shane, graduated from high school. We decided to stop doing all the work and giving all the money back to the greatest sport in the world. We decided to start running World of Wrestling as a business. It seems in this great sport most people are afraid to make money. It somehow is just not right! Well, those people have probably never run a business and certainly not a successful one.[adToAppearHere]
I feel that being successful enables World of Wrestling to provide awards second to none, produce fabulous ceremonies and just overall make each of our (average 6) events each year a most enjoyable and memorable experience. While spending over $60,000 each year on awards ($25,000 on Reno alone), $9,000+ on ceremonies certainly sets us in a class alone. All this would certainly be impossible without our loyal sponsors and my staff (some with 20+ years’ experience).
I have been most fortunate by having such great friends within the sport, people and companies that live and breathe as we do…. Our motto, “Dedicated to the Promotion of America’s Youth and the Great Sport of Wrestling.” I thank God for my wife, Beverly, of 40+ years and having 4 great athletes for sons, Keith, Jimmy, Michael and Shane. The sacrifice they have made has been essential in the success of World of Wrestling.
In the past 4 years, we have seen tough economic times such as $5/gallon for gas, very expensive flights, etc. However, we have had a steady increase each year in our tournament entries while some of the other companies have experienced a 20% drop. I sincerely thank you for the sacrifice and commitment each coach and parent has made by putting your kids first and choosing us.
Our events have been called many names such as The Granddaddy of Them All, The Real National Championships, The Super bowl of Wrestling, The Largest Jr. Event in the World, and the Toughest Tournament in the World.
What a great ride this has been, doing something you love and feeling that in a small way you may just be affecting some youngster’s life in a positive direction.”
That’s very inspiring.

Reno Offers Top-Notch Hotels, Exciting Casinos and More
Las Vegas may be famous for its glitz and glamour, but some 300 miles northwest of Sin City lies a popular destination in its own right. Aptly dubbed “The Biggest Little City in the World,” Reno holds its own with a vibrant nightlife scene, a bevy of fine restaurants, and scores of casinos sure to please gaming novices and pros alike. Set at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, Reno is within a one-hour drive of such world-class ski destinations as Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Heavenly. What’s more, its close proximity to Pyramid Lake, the Truckee River and Lake Tahoe makes the city a major draw for travelers interested in outdoor recreation activities ranging from fishing to water-skiing to kayaking.
Places to do and things to see abound inside Reno’s 100 square miles. Take the Nevada Museum of Art – the only accredited art museum in the state of Nevada – which offers a broad range of art exhibitions for people of all ages to enjoy. Locals and visitors flock to the Wingfield Park Amphitheater for summer concerts and movie screenings; the park also hosts the well-attended Reno River Festival and the Artown Festival.
Just east of Reno in Sparks sits Victorian Square, a pedestrian-friendly district that’s popular for its restaurants, open-air events and hotels. Having just completed a $23 million renovation, John Ascuaga’s Nugget Hotel and Casino has an expansive arcade, 85,000-square-foot casino, celebrity showroom, health club and spa. Don’t miss the “Best in the West” Rib Cookoff that takes place here every summer. It features top-name entertainment and cooking teams from all across the country, and best of all, it’s free!
Arguably two of the best hot spots in town for drinks are housed in The Eldorado Hotel Casino in downtown Reno. Named “Best Brewpub in America” by Nightclub & Bar Magazine, The Brew Brothers offers eight custom microbrews and a creative menu that includes some of the meanest ribs and pizzas you’ll find anywhere. Also worth checking out is Roxy’s Bar & Lounge, whose 102 martinis and vast selection of wines (a whopping 350 to be exact) have earned it the prestigious DiRoNA award and the Wine Spectator’s “Award of Excellence.”
Outside the property’s front doors, the annual Eldorado Great Italian Festival pays homage to the sights, sounds and tastes of Italy on Virginia Street. Head three miles south and you’ll be greeted by Atlantis Casino Resort Spa – a full-service resort that not only includes Reno’s only Concierge Tower, but also features a new Poker Room, Race & Sports Book, and spa complete with indoor and outdoor pools.
You can also venture to the National Automobile Museum, which has more than 200 vehicles on display; tee off at the Wolf Run Golf Club, one of Reno’s most celebrated golf courses; and bring out the adventure seeker in you at the Ultimate Rush Speed & Thrill Park, whose five acres encompass bumper cars, miniature golf and a 180-foot sky coaster.
There are endless reasons to stay and play in Reno. What are you waiting for to experience this great city for yourself?[adToAppearHere]
