Youth Wrestling is the foundation for the future of the Willmar Wrestling program. Getting young athletes interested and involved in the sport of wrestling is what will make our program a success. The youth program consists of wrestlers in grades K-6. The focus at the youth level is to get many kids involved and enthusiastic about the sport. The main teachings will be centered around enjoyment and learning the basic skills of the sport. Competition is not the focus during these ages; it is learned through practice experience, and when the athlete is ready they should compete at events. Competing is a parent/family decision. Our coaches will provide support and direction based on their perspective of your athlete’s development.
Our Youth program competes in Individual and Team tournaments. Parents are encouraged to bring their wrestler(s) to any tournaments. The Youth coaches will provide a schedule of tournaments that you can attend throughout the season. Parents are free to coach their child(ren) at any Individual tournament. The Youth coaching staff will coach at Team events.
