Welcome to Ridgefield Youth Wrestling, Ridgefield Connecticut’s wrestling program for boys and girls in Kindergarten to Middle School. As a club, we strive to create a safe, fun, and positive environment for our members to learn the fundamentals of the sport, experience the commitment, challenge and camaraderie found in wrestling, and gain skills important for wrestling and life.
We are a sanctioned USA Wrestling Club and have an Elementary Program (K – Grade 5) and a Middle School Program (Grade 6 – Grade 8) that includes new and experienced wrestlers. Our season runs from November to February. In general, our Elementary School Program practices Tuesday and Thursday from 7 pm – 8:30 pm and our Middle School Program practices Monday and Wednesday from 7 pm – 8:30 pm. For 2021-2022 season, youth wrestling is reorganizing in CT and our RYWC club will be offering two sessions of clinics. During this season, we will determine how to incorporate live and competition when possible.
Prior to the start of the season we run two Open Mat Nights to introduce new wrestlers to our program. For 2021 our Open Mat Nights will be held in late October at the Ridgefield High School. Once dates are finalized our website will be updated. Our registration for the program will open in late-October and close on November 19 with a registration cost of $125 per wrestler per session (and a family cap of $175 per session)*
*RYWC is a sanctioned USA Wrestling Club and requires, regardless if which session or both, each wrestler to USA Wrestling Athlete card directly from USAW (valid for one year 9/2021 - 8/2022) currently $46.
