Clinics and Dual Meet with Team Michigan – Apr 29-30

We are hosting a team from Fowlerville, Michigan on Saturday April 29th and Sunday April 30th for a series of training sessions and a dual meet on Saturday evening.

We are inviting all area wrestlers and coaches to attend free of charge and would like to put together a good team for the dual on Saturday.

Let every wrestler in the area know about this great opportunity!

We are also asking if anyone (athletes) can host a billet for one night, to make this an even better experience. Contact Coach Burke if you’re capable of hosting any athletes.

We have secured Brianna Fraser from Brock Wrestling as our featured clinician and are working with the team from Fowlerville to bring Adam Coon from the University of Michigan, so two great wrestlers to learn from.

For more details, please see the attached document.

Youth Wrestling 2022


IMPORTANT NOTICE — Youth Wrestling for 2022

The primary concern of our coaches is to ensure your safety and that we offer our program in a manner that follows the Ontario Wrestling return to play protocols and those rules of our local health unit and school boards. Coach VanderSlagt and Coach Burke have been in planning on how we can run a season for 2022.

Our plan has been to begin in late January / early February at St Patrick’s Catholic HS and run sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays as:

  • 6:00pm to 7:00pm — grades 5 and under
  • 7:00pm to 7:15pm — clean the mats
  • 7:15pm to 8:40pm — grades 6, 7, 8

We have sent in our permit application to the Community Use of Schools and have purchased the required insurance through Ontario Wrestling. What we don’t have is a clear picture of what is actually going to be allowed to happen in a safe manner.

Our decision to run a program at this time is flexible and totally dependent on outside forces beyond our control. We ask that you check back here for updates or contact us at
