Legislator Flotteron Helps Honor the Bay Shore Kid Wrestling Program

BS Kid Wrestling

On Saturday, February 3rd, Legislator Steven J. Flotteron joined other local officials, members of Bay Shore School’s administration, students and families in recognizing young wrestlers in the High School Gymnasium. The new auxiliary gym was renamed after the wrestling team co-founder, Jumper Leggio. The Bay Shore Kid Wrestling program was honored for its outstanding example to other youth clubs across the country. The wrestling program was the first of its kind in New York State, from which other programs grew. Before other areas began forming their own organizations, people would come from all over to learn how to wrestle in Bay Shore.  

Bay Shore Kid Wrestling was founded in 1961 by life-long Bay Shore residents, Jumper Leggio and Bill Knapp. Their charter was later used by the United States Wrestling Federation to create youth clubs across the country. Bay Shore Kid Wrestling, and those involved in its development and growth, has been instrumental in shaping the lives of thousands of children who passed through the program.
