Welcome to Ridgefield Youth Wrestling, Ridgefield Connecticut’s wrestling program for boys and girls in Kindergarten to Middle School. As a club, we strive to create a safe, fun, and positive environment for our members to learn the fundamentals of the sport, experience the commitment, challenge and camaraderie found in wrestling, and gain skills important for wrestling and life.
We are a sanctioned USA Wrestling Club and have an Elementary Program (K – Grade 5) and a Middle School Program (Grade 6 – Grade 8) that includes new and experienced wrestlers. Our season runs from November to February. In general, our Elementary School Program practices Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 7 pm – 8:30 pm and our Middle School Program practices Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7 pm – 8:30 pm. Throughout the season we have wrestling matches with nearby towns. The matches are usually during the week and the wrestlers are matched up by age, weight, experience, and skill level. Additionally, there are optional USA Wrestling tournaments throughout the season, which usually occur on Sundays.
Prior to the start of the season we run two Open Mat Nights to introduce new wrestlers to our program. For 2017 our Open Mat Nights were scheduled for October 24 and October 25 from 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM at the Ridgefield High School. Our registration for the program will open in mid-October and close on November 20 with a registration cost of $175 per wrestler and a family cap of $225.
