Welcome to GCU Co-Ed Wrestling Club

The GCU Co-ed Wrestling Club team returns the sport of pride and passion back to the GCU campus.  The Wrestling Club brings together those interested in one of the oldest forms of combat, and teaches them not only the proper grappling techniques and ways to be a champion, but also relates the lessons on the mat to what you’ll encounter in your physical, spiritual and emotional lives.

The GCU Co-Ed Wrestling Club is a multi-semester sport that will compete in tournaments in both Arizona and adjoining states. Wrestlers will have the chance to compete for local and regional titles, but it will be based on their skill level, and those who are just learning about the sport and its components will be able to progress at their speed to learn the proper ways of the sport.

The GCU Co-Ed Wrestling Club usually practices two to three times per week throughout the school year, and will practice on the mats at the new Canyon Activity Center on the northeast part of the main campus.

Mickey Nunez enters his second full year as the Grand Canyon University Wrestling Head Coach at GCU. Nunez hopes to bring the wrestling program to the same level that he did for Glendale Community College’s club program. While at GCC, he led the Gauchos to the 2015 National Collegiate West Coast Conference Championship, and took nearly a dozen wrestlers to the National Collegiate Wrestling Association National Championships in Texas that same season. Nunez has learned under and worked with some of the top coaches in the sport, including Eddie Urbano, Bobby Douglas and Thom Ortiz. As a student-athlete, Nunez earned several accolades while wrestling for Arizona State University in the early 1990’s.

Nunez graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s degree in sociology. He earned his Master’s of Science in Sociology with an emphasis in Education from Grand Canyon University. He also received a Master of Arts in Theology, and is currently working on his Doctoral Degree in Philosophy from GCU. He and his wife, Donna, have three children: Elyonna, Amariah and Mickey, Jr.
