Tonka Tusslers & Youth Wrestling Season Begins on Dec. 3rd
The Tusslers program introduces kids to the sport by utilizing drills, gymnastics and techniques that teach them the fundamentals of wrestling. Intro camp is highly recommended. Tusslers have the option, with coaches’ approval, to move up to the Youth program at the end or during the Tussle season.

The Youth program takes the base wrestling of knowledge to the next level. We practice 2 times a week and will teach technique, drills, conditioning and live wrestling.

Registration is open now. There is no fundraising commitment this year so the price has increased a small amount to cover those costs. Register here>>
