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. 

Join us for our second annual girls' camp to see if wrestling is something you would like to try.

*If you have any questions regarding girls' wrestling please do not hesitate to reach out the Erin, Director of Wrestling
