The Snoqualmie Valley Wrestling Club is dedicated to teaching fundamentals through advanced wrestling skills to the youth of the Snoqualmie Valley. We work closely with the local middle and high school wrestling coaches to help ensure our young athletes are prepared to contribute our local school teams right away. Our Wrestling Club is open to boys and girls ages 5 to 18. We are a USA-Sanctioned Wrestling Club (USA Wrestling is the parent club for the USA Olympic team). The SVWC also participates in the Western Washington Kids Wrestling League which is dedicated to novice wrestlers with 2 years or less of experience. Wrestlers with more experience will be able to wrestle at the USA tournaments in which a USA Wrestling Card must be purchased separately from our club fee. We also schedule dual matches with other area wrestling clubs so wrestlers can get in extra practice matches throughout the season.
** Please note: Wrestlers are required to purchase a USA wrestling card in order to be eligible to participate in any tournament.
SVWC runs an introductory pre-season camp designed to teach the basic fundamental moves along with philosophies of Wrestling. This six week camp will allow boys and girls from the ages of 5-14 the opportunity to experience the ancient sport of Wrestling without committing to a full season. This camp consists of one hour practice/training sessions that will take place twice a week. Registration includes a SVWC t-shirt.
The Folk-Style season will consist of two different wrestling groups that will teach the proper skills and create the best experience for everyone involved (Beginner and Novice).
