Below are a few of our most frequently asked questions.

Is Wrestling For All Ages?

There is no harm in starting your child in wrestling at a young age. Because wrestling is a sport that involves complex techniques that can take time to master, the younger they start, the better chance they have at being successful at it. In fact, children between the ages of 4 and 5 can begin wrestling. Most often, it comes down to the maturity level of the child. Parents of younger wrestlers should also make certain that their little wrestlers are involved with a club that is less competitively involved and more fun with “tumbling” types of activities. 

Wrestling is a great activity for young kids and older. It will help them to develop their strength, speed, and agility, as well as get out of the house and make new friends who share similar interests. It is also a great way for youth to learn some important life lessons. Wrestling is an Olympic sport that is welcoming to all ages, sizes, races, and genders. It is a passionate sport that is also very rewarding. More importantly is that it is a great environment for your child to develop physically, mentally, and emotionally at their own pace. 

Is Headgear Required For Youth Wrestling Programs?

Because wrestling is a grappling type sport, headgear is one piece of protective equipment that they should probably have. Most youth wrestling leagues require headgear in order to protect the head and, most importantly, the ears. The head is constantly being utilized as a weapon, for defense, and even as a target in wrestling which means your ears are highly and consistently exposed and should be protected at all times. 

Headgear does not have to be expensive in order for your child to receive protection that is top-rated and great fitting. It is important for you to allow your child some insight into the look and feel of their headgear. This will allow them to feel more confident and “cool” in their new gear which, in turn, will encourage them to want to wear it more often, especially during wrestling classes for kids. It is also important to share with your child why headgear is so important so that they, too, understand the importance of protection. 

What Do Kids Need For Wrestling Class?

When attending your first wrestling class, it is okay to show up in a regular t-shirt, shorts (gym or active wear is probably best), and a good pair of tennis shoes. You may also want to bring along a water bottle for your youth since they will be engaging in an Olympic sport that is physically demanding and should remain properly hydrated at all times. Fingernails might also want to be trimmed back for their safety, as well as any other wrestlers that they grapple with. 

Additionally, any other necessary gear or uniforms that your young wrestler may need will most certainly be suggested by their coach. When participating in any wrestling tournaments or competitions, proper wrestling attire is required. However, the facility that your child attends will have their own standards for dress code requirements. Gym wear is usually the best way to go when attending your first class.
