The youth season begins in December and runs through Mid-March. See the full schedule here.
Practices – Split into 2 groups
To effectively coach all skill levels and all age groups, we split practices into a younger group (K-3rd Grade) and older group (4th -8th Grade). Younger kid practice is from 6:15pm to 7:00pm and an older kids practice from 7:15-8:30pm. Practices will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Cretin Derham Hall Wrestling room. The address for Cretin Derham Hall is 550 S Albert St, St Paul, MN 55116. Park and Enter on the Activity entrance / dropoff area (West). We will have someone greeting at that entrance to help direct to the wrestling room during the first week.
Competition – Dual Meets and Tournaments
We typically schedule a number of dual meets with some other youth wrestling clubs in the Twin Cities. There are also a large number of open tournaments that we will send out at the beginning of the season to give kids a chance to compete. Details of these events will be posted on stpaulwrestlingclub.org.
For practices, shorts, t-shirt, and wrestling shoes (or socks are also fine). Headgear is optional, but recommended for live wrestling. We will have a box of loaner shoes available as well as headgear. For competition, shorts and a compression shirt can be worn. We also have traditional singlets available for loan.
Registration fee is $40 per participant for the season (with a max of $100 if you have 3 or more children). Payment must be made in person (no online payments at this time) during the first week of practice. We now accept credit cards, cash, or check. Financial assistance with the registration fee is available if needed.
