Rocket Wrestling Club is a non-profit wrestling organization. Our youth program has three seasons that run back to back: introductory season/pre-season, regular season, and state tournament season. We practice, with a few exceptions, in the John Marshall High School wrestling room. Please see our registration form for details.
The introductory season is for brand new and lesser experienced (generally one year or less) wrestlers. It is intended to be a low cost option to try the sport of wrestling, giving athletes and families an idea of what the sport of youth wrestling and wrestling practices are all about! We hope that every participant will enjoy thesport and register for our regular season This phase generally runs for four to five practices in November.
The regular season is our main season of youth wrestling. We generally begin our regular season at the start of December and complete the regular season in mid/late February. Weekend tournaments are strongly encouraged, but are optional (registration fees for these events are not included in the registration fee). During this time, we will also compete in some team tournaments. These tournaments are PK-6th grade events that are cross-grade. We are allowed one wrestler per weight class and a limited number of alternates. Therefore, wrestlers interested in competing in these events will wrestle-off to make the team. We encourage all older, experienced and competitive wrestlers to try out for these team events.
The state tournament season is strongly encouraged for all wrestlers! It is the time during the youth wrestling season that many state and national tournaments will be holding qualifying and state/regional tournaments. Some, especially newer, wrestlers may choose to complete their season at the end of the regular season, but since many of these tournaments are also local (Stewartville, Plainview, Austin, Hayfield, Byron, etc), we encourage all competitive wrestlers to wrestle in March! Our ending date is aligned with the NYWA State and Invite Tournaments, which is held at the Rochester Mayo Civic Center.
