MatCats EAA Youth Wrestling

UPCOMING EVENTS

 

Pre-Season Beginner Camp
Grades PreK-2nd and 3rd-5th

This Camp is for boys and girls with 2 years or less experience! 

This camp is designed for anyone wanting an introduction to the sport of wrestling as well as for those newer to the sport for a basic refresher. It is a great way for parents to also learn as well, get connected with other families.

This camp is a non-competitive environment teaching basic beginner moves and full of fun games
Athletes will be separated by age groups


I get asked by parents in the community often if its too late to have their child try wrestling. The answer is a loud NO! In this sport we find people of all ages start at many different points in their youth and experience great success and gain both mental and physical strength and discipline.

MatCat Wrestling

Mat Cat of the YEAR

Congrats to Henry Westerman! Henry was a 4th grader this year. He had a great season with the MatCats on and off the mat! It was so great to see him challenge himself throughout the season.  Henry's determination to improve grew this season and he began seeing more success and finding more mental and physical strength in his skill set.  When Henry was not on the mat wrestling he was mat side cheering and encouraging his teammates! 

Each week an athlete will be chosen as the Mat Cat of the week. A hard working, focused, dedicated wrestler will be given the MatCat of the week accomplishment Badge. At the end of the season we picked a wrestler that stood out from the rest both on and off the mat!
