Growth of Girls Wrestling

In the State on MN each year more and more girls come out to compete on the mat. This growth has began to open up more options for girls to join team not only to compete with the boys but many opportunities to compete with other girls. Last year EAA wrestling had 3 youth girls on the team and we hope to see more join us this season. 

Girls who join EAA wrestling will practice and compete with boys. We will also share other local options for those interested to join area all girls leagues. 

There is an all Female club that some of our youth girls participate in addition to our EAA team.
