Sign Up Open for Kingsley Youth Wrestling

Updated: Dec 1, 2023


Kingsley Youth Wrestling offers several programs for K-8. Also available is the middle school program for grades 6-8 that is school-based.

K-5: Elementary / Beginner Wrestling

There will be a camp for elementary and beginner wrestlers that will run in December for 3 weeks and will be completed before the holiday break. The target athletes for this group will be boys and girls with limited experience in wrestling who want to give wrestling a look. The goal of this group will be to practice two nights a week and compete at two events before the quick season is completed. The coaches of this group will be volunteers and will instruct on the foundational aspects of wrestling.


Expect first practice on Monday, December 4 at 6:00PM at Kingsley High School running two nights per week until break. There will be opportunities after break for wrestlers to stay on and wrestle in the MyWay Novice tournaments. This will be a great opportunity for werstlers to wrestle in the same tournaments as the advanced group and prepare them for that. Another opportunity for this age group will again run from February to March, more information on the second elementary program will be released after break.


Cost: $30
