– Elite Wrestlers(4th year and above) Practice Tues/Thurs 7-8:30 and should attend Wed 6-8pm technique nights.

– Some younger kids wrestle Open.  Some Older kids wrestle Novice.  These classes are not concrete but rather general guidelines.

– Freestyle Greco Season Lasts April-Early June(has a much lower participation rate than folkstyle)***

– We do not recommend that all novice wrestlers compete.  The child’s emotional and physical maturity should be what dictates that decision.
