1. Any of approximately 1,500 elongated arachnid species characterized by a segmented curved tail tipped with a venomous stinger at the rear of the body and a pair of grasping pincers at the front.
2. Scorpions play the role of evildoers in fables and legends. Greek respect for scorpions prompted the naming of the constellation Scorpius, a sign of the zodiac.

Scorpion wrestlers have a capacity to push themselves harder than most and display an unrivaled mental toughness.
What do PEOPLE say?
It took a lot of convincing to get [my son]
back this year to wrestle. But days like today are how we know we made the right decision. He said he actually enjoyed being at practice today. The coaching staff is just amazing and I know that [my son] comes out of there not just learning wrestling moves but being a more confident person. Thanks guys!!!
I 2nd the Scorpions. It’s my son’s 4th yr, he’s 11, and we love it! Coaches are amazing!
Thank you to all the coaches for all the hard work and time you gave to [my son] over the years. He had his 1st high school wrestling tournament this weekend and he won his 1st match as a varsity wrestler. But that isn't what made me so proud, it was the way he handled himself during his defeats. Shaking his opponent's hands and maturely walking off the mat to hear his coaches critique. It is a testament to his growth as a young man, as well as an athlete, and you've all played a huge part in that!
I️ also suggest Scorpions! Great club, great coaches and they are very good with the little ones.
