The Elco Youth Wrestling program is offered to all children from age four through sixth grade.
Registration for the season is held in early November. Forms announcing the registration nights will be sent home from school with the students in October. Registration for the youth team coincides with a wrestling clinic offered by the high school coach. The clinic is designed to provide a brief introduction to the sport. Registration can be completed during the clinic nights or by obtaining the registration form from the website and mailing in the form and registration fee so that they are received by the club by the date of the second registration night which is typically in early November.
Practices begin towards the end of November. At the youth level, wrestling is primarily an individual (not a team) sport and therefore tournaments are voluntary. Tournaments are held on the weekends. A few tournaments are local, but most tournaments require travel. Transportation is the responsibility of the parents. We currently host one tournament each season at Elco High School which is usually at the end of January. The regular season typically concludes in early March. However, post season tournaments continue into April and there are wrestling opportunities year round. More information can be found at www.elcowrestling.com
