Kids Classes

Youth Wrestlers: 4 to 13 Years Old

Kids Class and Kids Elite Class

Our Kids classes are awesome! Our wrestlers work hard, learn the best fundamental techniques, develop mental toughness, and have fun, too. These kid classes are designed with the purpose of developing sound fundamental techniques.  It is essential to develop proper techniques at a young age in order to save a lot of time and frustration correcting poor fundamentals later. The classes also encourage teamwork and discipline.

Kids- Our regular Kids Class is geared toward Beginner and Intermediate wrestlers, 4-13 years of age.  Kids ages 4-8 years old will have an hour practice in a separate area during our Kids Class.

Kids Elite- Our Kids Elite Class is our Advanced Kids Class, 9-13 years of age. This class is for our experienced wrestlers who are wanting to get additional training.  Students will cover technique at a faster pace and more live wrestling will be incorporated.

Fall Season

Training classes focus primarily on folkstyle techniques. The purpose of the Fall Class is to prepare our students for the main high school or kids competitive seasons. The Fall Class is one of the best times to develop new skills, establish a strong base for conditioning, and work on timing.

Winter Season

Winter season is one of the main competitive seasons for our youth wrestlers. Training in these classes focuses on learning and reinforcing techniques and strategies, live wrestling, conditioning, and mental preparation.  Wrestlers will also have the option to compete at local weekly tournaments.

Spring  and Summer Seasons
