The Bullet Mat Club is composed of a number of concerned people within the Brandywine Heights School District who share the goals of furthering Brandywine’s wrestling program from the elementary grades through the high school. Their efforts are to assist financially, spiritually, and academically any athlete involved in wrestling at Brandywine.
Money is raised to accomplish these goals primarily through the elementary wrestling tournament sponsored by the Bullet Mat Club. This is done with the combined cooperation of the administration and the athletic department at Brandywine. The tournament requires a great deal of help, community support and teamwork. The tournament is a very successful fundraiser and to date we have raised over $40,000 to assist the wrestling program.
Additional fundraising has been necessary to supplement recent school district funding shortages. These fundraising efforts have included sandwich sales, blueberry sales and a sponsorship drive. Our community has been and continues to be support. We would sincerely like to thank all of our sponsors, past, present and future.
Because of these fundraising efforts the Bullet Mat Club continues to be able to support our student-athletes at every level. Graduating seniors who are planning on continuing their education are given a $250 scholarship. Thus far over $10,000 has been awarded. We have also sponsored wrestlers going to post season tournaments and have purchased numerous awards and equipment when needed. In 2004 through the efforts of State Senator Mike O’Pake, the Bullet Mat Club secured a grant of $5,000 to refurbish the Middle School Wrestling Room. We have also been able to purchase new singlets and to provide strength training for our high school wrestlers.
We believe that wrestling builds character and self-esteem, and is truly one of the best sports to help young people mold their lives!
