The Founders of Chicks Wrestling LLC and Chick Wrestler LLC, together with Leigh Jaynes, are on a mission to instill core values that will prepare girl wrestlers for competition on the mat as well as equip them with the skills they need to handle all facets of life that they will face in the future off the mat. 

1. We need your help in donations to accomplish our goal in elevating the sport of girls wrestling to a higher standard of accountability and professionalism as we build a national chartered club to help promote, support and grow these core values on a national scale. We will start in Pine Brook NJ with our first Olympic Caliber World Class Training Facility 

2. Next, we want to expand our current line of girl focused wrestling gear, activewear and clothing so that girl wrestlers can be covered and supported properly from head to toe and look and feel great about themselves also. 

3. Lastly, we want to support Leigh Jaynes in her Olympic Journey towards Gold in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics where she will be competing in Women's Freestyle Wrestling. 

Chicks Wrestling LLC
We established a core set of values based on our acronym, C.H.I.C.K.S. - Courage, Honor, Integrity, Commitment, Knowledge and Strength. We created the Chicks Wrestling Oath to help instill these core values in our girl wrestlers and to expand upon their success on the mat. Our Oath - A Chick Wrestler has the Courage to stand against all odds, the Honor to conduct themselves with high respect, the Integrity of a strong moral compass, the Commitment to hard work and never giving up, the Knowledge to learn and improve on a daily basis, and the Strength of mind and body to overcome any obstacle, is the key to instilling those core values into our girl wrestlers. 

With your help, we are looking to build a national chartered organization of Chicks Wrestling clubs to further expand and instill our core values and help raise the sport of girls wrestling on a national scale. Initially, we are looking to take our existing 3,100 SQFT facility in Pine Brook NJ and expand to 15,000 SQFT within the same building. This will allow us to hold our own girls wrestling tournaments as well as provide ample resources and services to our girl club members which will include World-Class wrestling training equipment and facilities, medical services, chiropractic services, tutoring services, counseling services, nutritional and well-being services, advanced neurological screening services as well as ample space for full locker rooms, showers, saunas and ice bath treatments, a parents lounge with ample seating and plenty of space for spectators during tournaments and special events.  Visit the original source at www.chickswrestling.com for more information.  

Chick Wrestler LLC 
We are the original all-girls wrestling clothing and gear company, having provided girl wrestlers from youth levels all the way up to World and Olympic levels with custom clothing and gear designed to work with a woman's body and support her needs. Originally started as LJ Wrestling in 2012, the Chick Wrestler brand has been worn by hundreds of international and world class athletes including World and Olympic medalists. Chick Wrestler is expanding upon its main line of Singlets to provide an entire line of products to outfit and prepare any girl wrestler with a complete package of gear that will stand up to abuse on the mat and look and feel good at the same time. Our newest products are loved by girls worldwide and we've only just begun to expand on our product line so with your help, we can ramp up and provide more products to girls that support them properly and help them feel good about themselves while on and off the mat.

Leigh Jaynes
Leigh is the 2015 World Bronze Medalist in Women's Freestyle Wrestling. She is a 14 year Veteran in the US Army and her current rank is Cpt. She is also a full-time single mom to an amazing 5 year old little girl named Evelyn. Not surprisingly, Evelyn recently competed in the 2019 NJ Scholastic State Wrestling Championships in the Girls Division in Trenton this past March and took 1st place in her bracket. Aside from being a single mother and traveling up to 3 hours a day total just to teach girls wrestling 4 to 5 days a week at our facility in Pine Brook, while also traveling almost every weekend local and long distance to coach other girls at tournaments here and abroad, Leigh is training to compete in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics for Women's Freestyle Wrestling. Leigh is currently the NJ Women's National Team coach for USAWNJ. Recently interviewed as a guest by Margo Lovett on her nationally syndicated podcast "The Power of Women", Leigh Jaynes shares her story of rising through great adversity to overcome and achieve success against all odds. Podcast with Margot Lovett.  Additionally, Leigh was recently featured on the cover of WomELLE Magazine with a 6 page cover story titled "Battling the Odds: The Phenomenal Ascent of Leigh Jaynes".  WomELLE Cover April 2019.  Although Leigh has sponsors that help offset some of the costs of being an Olympic athlete in training, the majority of her support comes from her business partner who is a father of a family of six children including 4 active youth wrestlers. Funding two startups and supporting an Olympic athlete is no easy task. Leigh Jaynes would love to have your support so she can continue to train for her Olympic dream of competing for Gold while she continues to help grow and support the sport of girls wrestling, so that many more girls will get to experience and grow like her for generations to come.  Visit the original source at www.leighjaynes.com  for more information.

We are not a 501c3 Non Profit Organization. Some people may question why? We did not want to take your hard earned money and waste it on bureaucracy and lobbying for policy changes. The world of girls wrestling needs girls wrestling clubs with adequate training facilities and coaching staff, a full line of gear and activewear catered to girls, and leaders in girls wrestling to help grow and expand the sport. We plan to fulfill those needs directly by innovation and leading as we use our small business model to propel the sport forward. Anyone can talk policy change all day, but you will not fill tournaments with girls until you have girls wrestling clubs to train in and girls wrestling gear available for girls to wear. This great country was built on the backs of small businesses and innovation and we will gladly shoulder that burden to build this great sport for girls and make a long lasting change for generations to come. While we are publicly disclosing that Chicks Wrestling LLC and Chick Wrestler LLC are private companies for profit, we have structured the companies such that 10% of all profits will be donated quarterly to the USO, a top military support organization that supports military service members and military families. Additionally, 10% of all profits will be used to support non profit wrestling organizations that give back to the sport of wrestling as well as other notable charitable organizations. It is our intention to take from our future success and give back to the wrestling community. 

In closing, we are looking for donors to help us build a national charter club for girls wrestling, expand our innovative brand exclusively designed for girl wrestlers and to help support Leigh Jaynes in her bid for Olympic Gold at an age where most athletes wouldn't even think to try, yet Leigh is training to rise against all odds and strives to achieve her goal.  When you donate to our cause, you have the option of deciding where your donation goes to support us. You can support Chicks Wrestling and the buildout of our state of the art training facility and expansion of the our national chartered wrestling club throughout the USA. You can support Chick Wrestler and help further expand our innovative line of clothing and gear as well as help fund new inventions that will have a profound impact on the world of wrestling and elevate accountability for the sport on all levels. You can support Leigh Jaynes on her Olympic Journey to the Tokyo 2020 Summer Games.  You can also support all three and let us allocate the funds as needed. Just simply specify which of the three you wish to support in your comment section when you make your donation and we will allocate the funds as specified.
