The Mankato Area Youth Wrestling Club has been in operation for over 25 years serving Greater Mankato, North Mankato and the surrounding area. Practices consist of skill training, technique, conditioning and “live” wrestling.  There will be heavy emphasis on the rules and techniques for the international styles of wrestling, Freestyle and Greco-Roman as well as those skills that translate to the traditional American style of Folkstyle as competed in at the High School and College levels. 

Safety and meaningful involvement are the primary concerns for all participants, and we encourage parents to be involved with our program to ensure that we provide a positive experience for all participants.

Practice

Wrestlers should dress appropriately for physical activity. Appropriate attire consists of t-shirt and shorts or if preferred (but not required) wrestling singlets. Wrestling shoes are also recommended but not required. T-shirts and shorts should not have buttons, zippers or be too loose so as to cause danger to either yourself or others.

Practices will be held from 6:30-7:30 for grades K-6 and 6:30-8:00 for grades 7-12 at Mankato East High on Tuesday and Thursday nights beginning on March 14th. Registration will be done online this year!
