This page will be updated with 2021 wrestling information soon!

Why wrestle?
Wrestling is a great sport that develops agility, strength, and mental toughness.  Wrestling is a great sport to build a “base” of athleticism for other sports.  Unlike some sports, a player’s size is not a limitation because there are many weight classes.  It’s also a lot of fun!

Eligibility
Wrestlers must either attend CAPS Schools, live in the CAPS district, or get permission from the CWC executive board.

All Levels:
Equipment Needed: Wrestling shoes and head gear.  Parents can buy them online or at a sporting goods store. We do have a limited amount of donated shoes and headgear that we loan out. We recommend the Cliff Keen Tornado headgear in youth or adult size depending on the size of the wrestler.   If a wrestler doesn’t have shoes yet they can wrestle in clean socks to begin.  Jr. High wrestlers will be loaned head gear. All wrestlers will be issued a singlet that must be returned.  

Fundraising: We expect wrestlers from all levels to participate in our fundraising efforts.

Hygiene: Wrestlers should have clean clothes for practice.  They should wash or sanitize their hands after practice.  They should shower immediately after practice and meets.  See your doctor right away if the wrestler develops any unusual skin conditions. 

Covid-19 Protocols: We will follow all health department guidelines as well as align closely with MHSAA protocol.  Currently, wrestlers have to wear masks at all times including during competition.  We are taking additional precautions such as liming the number of practice partners a wrestler comes in contact with.  We ask that you not send a wrestler to practice or meets that has any Covid-19 symptoms. 

Transportation: Parents must transport kids to meets for all levels, including Jr. High.  Parents must supervise kids at meets if they are below the Jr. High level.

Refunds: Refunds will be given up until the point of the 1st competition if requested.
