Simley In-House Youth Wrestling
The Simley In-House Youth Wrestling season is coming to an end. Our season concludes with the Simley Youth Open wrestling tournament on Saturday, January 19th, 2013 at Simley High School.
The "Traveling" youth wrestling season begins on Tuesday, January 22nd. There will be another registration for the traveling season; the cost is $100 per wrestler. Wrestlers will also need to have a USA Wrestling Membership; the cost for this is $36. This registration will take your child through the rest of the Folkstyle season, and will also include Freestyle and Greco-Roman (if your child decides to participate in these seasons).
The Folkstyle season runs through March; MN/USA State is March 8-10 & The USAW/Cliff Keen Folkstyle Nationals are April 5-7 in Cedar Falls, IA. Freestyle & Greco-Roman start in March and run through May.
The Traveling practices will be held on Tuesday & Thursday nights at 7:00pm in the Simley High School wrestling room. These practices will be more advanced and intense than the "In-House" practices were.
Simley Traveling Wrestling Registration
Registration for the Simley Youth Traveling Wrestling program is Tuesday, January 22nd at 6:30pm. This will be held outside the Simley wrestling room. Practice will follow from 7:00-8:30pm.
This program is also for middle school wrestlers. All middle school wrestlers who want to continue wrestling should come to register.
