Children ages 6 and up are welcome including teenagers. Youngsters looking for off season wrestling practice and exposure to new competitors will benefit greatly from this program. Our goal is to network with local junior wrestling clubs and community schools in the Baltimore & greater metropolitan areas. Children new to wrestling will learn as well and be better prepared for when they begin their wrestling season.
