Gretna Youth Wrestling


Novice & Intermediate Program

The Novice (Beginner) program is for any wrestler with 0-2 years experience and the Intermediate program is for any wrestler that has 3 years or more experience and is not quite ready or old enough for the Competitive division. 

In the Novice division, the kids will learn the basics of wrestling and learn to love the sport.  The kids must be at least 4 years old by the start of practice.

In the Intermediate division, the kids will learn the even more important moves for wrestling .  The kids must be have at least 2 years of experience to be in this program.

We will have the Novice kids register for 3-4 tournaments and the Intermediate a few more than that each season.  We will recommend the tournaments to register for.  Any tournament we recommend, there will always be a coach there.  You will be responsible for registering your child for the tournaments and cost is anywhere from $15-$20 per tournament. 

Practices will be at Aspen Creek Middle School in the room across from the gym.  The practice nights will be as follows:
       Monday - 6:00pm - 7:15pm     ~   This practice is for Novice (beginner) wrestlers
       Tuesday - 6:00pm - 7:15pm    ~    This practice is for Intermediate wrestlers
       Thursday - 6:00pm - 7:15pm   ~     Novice (beginner) wrestlers
       Thursday - 7:30pm - 8:45pm   ~   Intermediate wrestlers

Our program director for both the Novice and Competitive programs is John Wood. 

The Head Coach for the Intermediate program is yet to be determined and the Head Coach for the Novice Beginners program is TBD.
