Wrestling for Kids

Get Started Today

At The Wrestling Kids, we strive to be different than the typical wrestling club. At most wrestling clubs you will find massive practices with one coach to tons of kids. In this large group environment it is hard to pay attention to details. At The Wrestling Kids and The Wrestling Coach Academy our focus is on small groups, personal instruction and high performance. We start with character development and focus on building the athletes athleticism from the ground up. We build foundational body control so that kids can safely and confidently complete moves and techniques. 

You will find that we care about the progress of each student we bring into the sport. With 20 years of professional coaching experience we specialize in every level of student athlete; the first day 4 year old is as welcome as a UFC or Olympic star. Our entire program is designed to help students excel and for your son or daughter to have a positive experience and to become a positive young adult while reaching their athletic and academic goals.

Top Reasons to get your children Started

Read below to find out what separates us from other youth sports and wrestling clubs.

A good Youth Wrestling program boosts confidence and self-esteem.

It is refreshing to conquer new challenges outside of the academic and social groups that often shape our children’s lives during the school year. Kids feel a sense of accomplishment every day during our wrestling practices. Learning new skills builds confidence in your child and our PE / Athleticism and Level 1 program is built with this focus in mind. The wrestling program instills in your child personal confidence, high self esteem, motor skills, and social skills. All designed to help build confidence in their physical fitness.

We offer a better training environment than everyone else

Due to the small 8:1 student to coach ratio our PE / Athleticism and Level 1 programs, now is the best time for a wrestler to begin their career. Special attention is paid to their development and progress throughout the season. While making sure the atmosphere is always upbeat and fun, our program focuses on getting your child enthralled in the sport and loving the self confidence it brings. If they choose to advance levels we can take them from Day 1 to NCAA.

Wrestling Practice in Kinnelon

When and where are practices?

With Covid precautions in mind, we designed and opened a facility in Butler, New Jersey right next to Bloomingdale that caters to small groups with an ultra high level of attention. We do not offer mass practices. Our largest practice group ever is 12 kids. We offer one on one private lessons, weekend camps, and daily training of small groups. Family discounts are available. With Covid sensitivity in mind you even have the option to choose your training partners and design a pod or do only private lessons. We have several families that train only together. Please contact us here for more information on group pricing for your team, kids, pod or one of our weekend camps. Please note each weekend camp is limited to 12 participants. Once full we maintain a waiting list.

We are serious about Developing your Child for life

Coach Jeff has trained, mentored and been there to guide wrestlers from their first day in his wrestling practices to the day they got accepted to college and even beyond. Many of our NCAA level athletes return to train with us in the summer. The 2021 graduates from our program had a 100% college placement rate, and will both be attending D1 Wrestling programs as preferred recruits at the University of Virginia and the University of Michigan. Recent graduates are competing for and attending; John Hopkins, Northwestern, North Carolina, Franklin and Marshall, Arizona State, NYU, LIU Post, Rhode Island College, Stevens Institute, and more. We have a passion for instilling dreams and making them reality. It is our goal to positively shape the future of your child’s life.
