We had our practitioners Abby and Cody from SFU running PE classes at 6 West Side elementary schools over 6 weeks this spring. Huge THANK YOU to all the schools that participated. In total we had 2,100 kids try wrestling, most for the first time. They did a thorough warmup, some simple technique and played interactive/physical games. Wrestling is a fun and empowering sport that is open to anyone regardless of age, gender, race, athletic ability, physical prowess, height, weight, speed or financial status.
On January 22nd we were hosted by the Maple Ridge Wrestling Club for a tournament and it was a total blast. All our wrestlers who made it out had a great time, got in some matches and left with a goodie bag, t-shirt and a medal. We hope that everyone from all the other clubs will join us at our place when we host!
Westsider Wrestling Club is a not for profit society that was born the combination of all the high schools on the West side of Vancouver training together as one team. We’ve now grown to include a kids program for kids 5-12 Years old.
For all ages the main goal is to have fun. We combine gymnastics with games and wrestling techniques to develop physical literacy.
Our Coaches are all past University and Olympic wrestlers with a deep knowledge and love for the sport. We want to introduce wrestling to more kids at a young age to grow the sport in Vancouver.
The High School season starts November 1st and runs until the end of February. Any student grade 8-12 can join the team, regardless of what school they go to, experience level or grade. The cost for the season is $130.
The Elementary season goes from November 1 to March 1 and costs $125 and includes registration/insurance with B.C. Wrestling and a T-Shirt.
Football and Wrestling are two peas in a pod! If you want to be a better tackler, improve your balance and add to your football skills overall, then you should be wrestling in the off se-season.
