Youth Wrestling Starts November 19

The Ottumwa High School wrestling coaches are offering a youth wrestling club and travel team opportunity for students in grades K-6.

Club wrestling is designed for the first and second year wrestler who has limited experience on the mat. Basic fundamentals will be the focus. The travel team will hold preliminary practices to determine members for the team. Team members will compete in weekend tournaments. Twenty wrestlers will be selected for this team.

Sign-up is November 19 and 24 from 5:30-6:30 outside the OHS wrestling room (use the Union St. entrance and go down the steps). Practices for club wrestlers will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-7:15 p.m., starting November 19. Travel team members will practice on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays.

Fees to participate are $40 for club and $60 for travel team. This includes a t-shirt, entry to the Ottumwa Youth Wrestling Tournament on January 10, and all practices.
