19-20 Registration Image


To introduce the merits of wrestling to elementary school students in a fun, systematic way. Wrestling is a wonderful tool that can facilitate and reinforce some of the cherished core values that all parents hope to instill in their children: self-confidence, self-reliance, accountability, work ethic, etc. Of course, wrestling is also fun and a great form of exercise.
The ultimate goal of the club is to foster and develop a vibrant and robust youth wrestling community within the Bishop Watterson feeder-school system. As the members/coaches of our club embark on this great journey, we will continuously work to present opportunities to all participants that will inspire and motivate them.
Winning, although ever-present in our world, will not be a focal point in the club. We will teach, expect and discuss daily that the kids learn to put forth their absolute best effort every time they step on the mat; and most importantly, have fun throughout the entire process.

COST: $125 • Includes 2 t-shirts

All proceeds will support youth wrestling community in the Bishop Watterson feeder school system.  It is recommended that wrestlers purchase headgear and wrestling shoes.

Cost includes 2 t-shirts, facility rental, Hellickson League fees, banquet costs, Ross Thatcher academy workouts, guest clinician fees, etc


All events are voluntary. We want the kids to compete & learn at their own pace. The coaching staff will provide consultation on what schedule, if any, is best for your child. LEWC has joined the Russ Hellickson League (Central Ohio Area), with competition opportunities in that league taking place on January 5, 12, 19, 26; and the League Championship on either February 9th or 16th. We will also conduct competition practices with like-minded youth clubs. Lastly, a few of our advanced LEWC wrestlers will participate in the OAC Grade School State Championship series. As you can see, the schedule is fluid, and more information will be given at our practices & parent communication group
