Coming soon!

The Novice Club is designed for first- and second-year wrestlers seeking an introduction to the sport or looking to emphasize fundamental skills. The program covers essential offensive and defensive techniques necessary for success in competitive settings. Each class will start with warm-ups, followed by technical instruction, exercises, drills, live wrestling sessions, and end with a wrestling-related game.

Wrestlers in the Developmental Club have the option to participate in our MYWAY (Michigan Youth Wrestling Association) competition season*.

All wrestlers will receive a dry-fit Club PAW Team shirt. ​​
