Our tournament is very well ran - last year we had 320 wrestlers done wrestling in 3.5 hours. Also, we will have a girls wrestling option and will bracket as numbers allow. Additionally, we will have a 50 minute technique clinic before wrestling begins. This clinic will feature basic technique for the k-6 wrestlers and a more advanced focus for the upper level/older wrestlers. Jr. High wrestlers will wrestle with registered officials on full size mats.
We normally have had our tournament at the beginning of January and have drawn almost all of the youth teams from Dubuque County (Hempstead, Senior, Wahlert, Cascade, Beckman, etc..). Also, we have had youth teams from North Scott, Maquoketa, and Dewitt. Additionally, there are usually pockets of wrestlers from the Cedar Rapids area along with a few wrestlers from Wisconsin.
Yes, we accept walk-ins. Wrestling usually begins by a few minutes after 10:00. We had some wrestlers out the door by 1:00 last year. We have heard the following clubs: Davenport Assumption, Linn Mar, Dubuque Wrestling Club, Hempstead Little Mustangs, Pleasant Valley, Beckman along with various others from the area. Typically we get 300-320 wrestlers and 2/3s of them are walk-ins. Again, we are very organized and efficient. Additionally, we will have a technique clinic that will benefit wrestlers of all ages and ability levels.
