There are several options for youths in the Sarnia Bluewater Wrestling Club to compete in tournaments throughout Ontario. As a club, we have entered many of these tournaments and it is typically a very positive experience. However, there is a wide range of skills in youth wrestling and, as such, the level of competition can be very diverse. Young wrestlers are grouped into age categories within 2 years of each other and into weight classes typically within 2 kg (4.4 lbs) of each other to make things as safe as possible.
For those interested, the following tournaments are available. If you are interested, please contact one of the coaches to determine individually if your child is ready for tournament participation as it can be a great chance to try the skills being taught in practice.
