Waconia Youth Wrestling FREE Clinic & Open House - Sept 23rd @ 7pm at Waconia High School Main Gym

There will be a FREE Youth Wrestling Clinic for all PreK-6th grade kids interested in signing up for the season on Monday, September 23rd in the Waconia High School Main Gym at 7pm. The Clinic is geared towards brand new wrestlers wishing to explore the sport, possibly new to Waconia, and to meet returning wrestlers/parents across the program. The Clinic will be run by our Waconia High School Varsity Wrestlers and Youth/High School Coaches to run through some fundamentals and introduce kids to the sport, including takedown and pinning techniques. This event will also serve as an informational "Open House" and parents are encouraged to come and learn more about the program, details about the upcoming season and any questions prior to the registration deadline.


No sign-up is required for the clinic, just come and join the fun! For any questions on the clinic or the upcoming season contact Youth Program Administrator, Jeff Katherman ( or Youth Head Coach, Rafael Torres (
