League Description

Licking County Youth Wrestling League was founded in the spring of 2005 to promote and develop sportsmanship, wrestling skills, and interest in wrestling for the youth of Licking County. Originally it consisted of 10 teams representing 10 of the 11 primary high schools in Licking County. In the fall of 2007 Johnstown, the lone remaining primary high school in the county joined the league as a member. This same year registration was limited to wrestlers having to be on the team in which school district they attended or lived, with a few exceptions. League participation has continued to grow and has made its mark at the Jr. High and High School level in the county. We would like to thank our founding members as well as the youth wrestlers, parents and coaches for continuing to develop wrestling in Licking County.
