Announcements and Important Events
McDOWELL MIGTHY MITES
Basic Info: McDowell youth wrestling is beginning a Fall program for younger students in grades K, 1, 2 who have no experience in wrestling. We will take kids with 1 year experience but prefer to have kids with little to no experience.
More info: McDowell youth wrestling, and youth wrestling as a whole is a winter sport. The registration for the winter season begins in early November. The season has 2 youth groups. Advanced and Novice. Advanced typically consists of kids with a few years of wrestling or older kids in 5 grade or above. Novice typically consists of beginners or 1 year experience at the most. Often times these are younger kids 5-8 years in age. The winter season also has competitions for each group. The Fall season does not.
Practices: Practices will be at McDowell Sr. HS. In the wrestling room. Enter the gym doors to access the wrestling room which is in the basement.. Practices will be broken down into warm up routines, skill development, concepts, games, and small competitions within the group of kids we have. We hope to give anyone wanting to register for our winter program a head start.
