Youth Wrestling Tournaments
One unique feature about the sport of wrestling is that parents and wrestlers can decide to participate in tournaments at their own pace. Some families will begin competing in December, while others may wait until the end of the season or decide not to compete at all. While it may be beneficial to give young wrestlers a taste of competition early, we agree that parents are the best judge of a younger wrestler’s capacity for winning and losing. The Tea Youth Wrestling Club will pay for the entry for your son to 3-4 predetermined tournaments in the local area. The Tea Youth Wrestling Club will usually have 35-55 wrestlers participate at these tournaments. The club had a lot of success finishing in the top 3 as a team in multiple tournaments last season. As the season begins the most comprehensive list can be found at www.dakotagrappler.com website where clubs post their tournament information on a forum. We will also do our best at adding the local tournaments to our website calendar. We will announce at practices which tournaments are coming up and what tournaments our coaches will be at. It is not uncommon to find 4 or 5 tournaments hosted Friday - Sunday throughout the season.
