This award will help us purchase new mats, uniforms, and headgear for our wrestlers. We will also put this grant towards our financial aid program.”

Liberty Mutual Insurance created the Responsible Sports Community Grant program in 2007 to reward youth sports teams, clubs, associations and schools that demonstrate commitment to responsibility, sportsmanship and teamwork.

“At Liberty Mutual Insurance, we know that youth sports are an integral part of children’s lives and help instill lifelong values,” said Julie Brassard, Liberty Mutual Insurance director of sponsorships. “We believe that responsible coaches and parents have a tremendous impact in helping these youth develop as athletes and as people. We applaud the Osage City Wrestling Club and the Osage City community for their dedication to providing athletes with a positive youth sports environment that encourages sportsmanship, learning, and responsibility.”
