 Thinking about Wrestling?

WHWA is a non-profit recreation program open for participation to children in:
Warren, Watchung, Long Hill & Green Brook

The Pee Wee Program (K - 1st Grades)
The Pee wee wrestling program is an introduction for both child and parent into the sport of wrestling. We focus on simple moves and rules. The program is 5 weeks long with 10 practices followed by a yearend novice tournament. Each practice will consist of a one hour class, twice a week, during the months of November and December

The Midget Program (2nd – 6th Grades)
The WHWA Midget Team (2nd-6th Grade) competes in the Central Jersey Midget Wrestling League and the Raritan Valley Midget Wrestling League. Practices for our Midget wrestlers will be two days a week.
