Wrestling for Kids

Get Started Today

At The Wrestling Kids, we strive to be different than the typical wrestling club. Most clubs are these massive practices, pumping out factory like numbers of kids and trying to ‘claim’ results. Our focus is on small groups and high performance, personalized training. We start with character and develop athleticism from the ground up. 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; including first day 4 year olds up to UFC and Olympic stars. Our entire program is designed to help students excel and for your son or daughter to become a positive young adult and reach their athletic and academic goals along the way. Through our specially designed ‘level’ based program the first day is as fun as the final day, all optimized in a progressive style of instruction that builds on previous lessons and seasons and will help your child develop and reach their goals.

Top Reasons to get your children Started

Read below to find out about our beginner and elite youth programs.

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 Athletics and Level 1 program is built with this focus in mind. The wrestling program instills in your wrestler confidence, high self esteem, motor skills, and social skills.

We offer a better training environment than everyone else

Due to the small 8:1 student to coach ratio our 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.

Wrestling Practice in Kinnelon

When and where are practices?

With Covid precautions in mind, we designed and opened a facility in Butler/Bloomingdale that caters to small groups with an ultra high level of attention. We do not offer mass practices. Our largest 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. 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.

Private lessons, pods and small groups are available now. Weekly youth classes will begin at our Butler facility, The Mat Club, in December. Please visit our Camps tab for information on our weekend day camps this fall.
