Q.  Will my child be wrestling kids older, bigger or more experienced?

A.  Wrestling is governed by weight class.  Therefore, a wrestler will almost always wrestle others within a few pounds of their weight.  It is possible, but that some more experienced wrestlers may wrestle slightly above their weight class - but we do our best (especially at younger levels), in coordination with other teams/coaches, to match wrestlers of skill and size whenever possible.
