Practice Schedule

2023-2024 Wrestling Season

Registration for the 2023-2024 wrestling season is now available (visit the "Club Registration" tab of the website). More detailed practice will be available to those registered on or before November 17th.   

Our “regular” season begins in late November and concludes in late February.  Postseason (state series) wrestling is the first two weeks in March.

After our initial registration period closes, we will evaluate the registrations we receive to form practice groups and establish a practice schedule.  We will email practice details (days/times) to you prior to the start of the season.  Practices will likely begin the week after Thanksgiving. 


Manhattan Wrestling Practice Schedule for the 2023-2024 Season:

-Regular Season practices run late November to late February
-State Qualifying Series ("Postseason"; 8U and older) is the first two weeks of March

Practice Groups (TO BE DETERMINED for 2023-2024)
Coaches will make sure each wrestler is in the appropriate practice group.

Registration and Payment must be done by December 1st or the wrestler will not be allowed to practice until it is complete.  We don't want money to be the reason a child does not participate--if you need to make special payment arrangements, please contact us at [email protected].
