2021 Fall/Winter Advanced Youth Wrestling
Advanced Wrestling is geared to children in Grades 3-8 but will consider younger children on request. This three-month program (approximately 25 practices with additional scrimmages, dual meets and tournaments) incorporates games, conditioning, and instruction as a means of expanding on the fundamentals learned in the Introduction to Wrestling program. Individuals are divided into groups based on age, weight, experience and ability. Participants should wear shorts and tight fitting t-shirts (no sweatpants or basketball shorts) for practices and dual meets, but may be required to wear a singlet, wrestling shoes and headgear in tournaments. Wrestlers in grades 5-8 will compete against other teams throughout the season as well as in tournaments at the end of the season. In some instances, younger wrestlers will be invited to participate. Some events occur on weekends, generally Saturday mornings for dual meets (3-4 times during the season) and tournaments on Sundays (3-4 times during the season). Please note that the season may extend based on some individuals that may qualify for tournaments. Cost of program includes team uniform (fight shorts/hooded sweatshirt) and use of team singlet.
