Our O3T program, from our perspective has done great success in doing the O3T Motto: Inspire Greatness. This time last year, we had a handful of our very first Official Tri-Titans and we were paving the way for a much bigger program! In this last year, We’ve had wrestlers who improved their grades from less than a 2.0 to a 3.7. We’ve also had a wrestler who has gone from throwing fits on the mat after a loss to showing respect!
As this last year, there was much trial and error, experimenting, and of course some “winging-it.”
This year Tri-Titans is looking to take our O3T Program to the next level. This includes new gear, new promotions, more active communication, and more opportunity! Along with more from us, we’re going to also be more diligent in keeping sure our O3T are staying true to the Mind, Body, and Spirit ideals of the program.
I. Tri-Titans (Re)evaluation Period. This includes CURRENT and ASPIRING O3T.
Applicants must submit evidence of grades averaging over a 3.7gpa or the schools equivalent.
Applicants must request and submit a “Letter of Recommendation” from a non-family member to represent the wrestlers involvement in the community. We will also accept awards that represent the wrestlers attitude, (I.E. Nate Solorio was given the Eagle Award by his school for “demonstrating kindness to others.)
Applicants Trackwrestling profile will be reviewed, and other competitions, such as Flo tournaments can be submitted to show recent athletic achievements.
Initial Application will be taken up to April 14th, 2017, We will then take 1 week to select the Official Tri-Titans and make an official announcement April 21, 2017!
We will still be accepting new O3T all year long, however, you will miss the initial release and may have delays on receiving O3T gear.

III. You’re an O3T, now what?
We’re actively ramping up the rate we’re issuing out O3T Spotlights! These are skillfully and custom made, but we’re making it a priority to actively post new Spotlights.
Get invited to do some big international event, camps, etc.? Let us know and we can offer support by offering gear fundraisers to help fund the trip!(I.E. The Ronin gear sale for Damion Elliot and the Wrestling Angels hoodie for Merijah Morales.)
SHOW IT OFF! Let the world know you’re an O3T, the more people are aware of the program, the more benefits will arise from being an O3T. We’re hoping in the near future that the extra exposure will help colleges, national dual teams, etc. take notice of O3T and open more doors. Some parents and athletes put #o3t on their social media information, others repost our photos of them, etc.
Meet up with us at tournaments! Eljay will be at a variety of tournaments all year long, and is open to traveling more if the schedule permits. If you have any recommended tournaments, feel free to let us know! Our next two tournaments:
Flo Reno Worlds April 6-8, 2017 in Reno, NV
2017 US Open, April 26-29, 2017 in Las Vegas, NV
