What we're about

Meet other local fans and participants of all levels of Veterans Freestyle, Greco and Folkstyle Wrestling! All ability levels welcome to develop new techniques, practice with other competitors, and participate in tournaments.
This is a great opportunity for beginners to learn a new and challenging sport, as well as provide drilling partners for old wrestlers that want to stay in the game. Our core membership includes experienced coaches who can help you learn the basics and provide chances to improve your mat skills. Come understand why wrestling, the 'World's Oldest Sport', continues to attract new fans and participants, just like it has for (literally) thousands of years.

Our workouts are for adult wrestlers. Mature high school wrestlers may attend with the organizer's prior approval.

Our club is chartered by USA Wrestling and all participants need to purchase a USA Wrestling competitors' card. This costs $50 and is good for one year. It provides liability and secondary accident insurance and is required for participation in many tournaments.
