A Little About Wrestling

Wrestling is the Fairest Sport for EVERY child:

Kids will wrestle other kids of approximately the same age and weight. For example, in Youth Wrestling, the age categories are 6 and under; 8 and under; 10 and under; 12 and under. Ages for tournaments are generally determined by the child's age as of 1/1 of that current seasons year. Weight classes are in five pounds increments (for example the 65 pound weight class would include kids from 61 to 65 pounds). It assures the kids only wrestle against kids their size. In tournaments you will find 3 different types: 1st year, Novice, and Open. Novice Tournaments are for kids with only 1 to 2 years of experience, where an Open Tournament is for kids with 3 or more years.

About our Program...

Our youth program practices are divided by experience level to ensure your wrestler gets the best training to improve his/her skill set. Experienced wrestlers (3 years and above or invited novice) practice every Monday and Wednesday from 6:15 pm to 8:15 pm. Novice wrestlers (1st and 2nd year wrestlers, along with hand selected other wrestlers) practice every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. Head Coaches Sean Thomas and Will Sims will lead instructions in the room, and assistant coaches are there to promote learning and safety. Coaches will meet and plot out what skill sets each group needs to bring the most positive experience. Our program is about teaching the sport and skills. Our weekly wrestling meets are on the weekends, generally spanning from the beginning of January till the end of February, ending with the WAWA Novice and Open Tournaments. Our yearly schedule can be found in the bar on the left side of the page.
