Lincoln-Sudbury Youth Wrestling
ABOUT THE CLUB
Lincoln-Sudbury Youth Wrestling is a non-profit organization run by volunteer coaches. LSYW, part of Friends of Sudbury Wrestling, is affiliated with the Mass. Youth Wrestling Association and is one of over 75 such clubs in Massachusetts.
The primary goal of the program is to introduce K- 8th graders to amateur folkstyle wrestling in a competitive environment, foster a young wrestler's potential through their commitment to the sport and act as a feeder program for the L-S High School wrestling team. No prior experience is necessary and is open to all students from Lincoln, Sudbury, Framingham and all area towns.
The fee for the 2022-23 season is $225 for Grades 3-8, $100 for K-2 and covers L-S facility rental fees, equipment, insurance coverage and team t-shirts.
Wrestlers in Grades K-2 will meet Mondays from 6-7PM and Grade 3-8 practices are held twice weekly from 6:00-7:30 PM at Lincoln-Sudbury RHS. Practice will begin the week of November 28
Wrestlers participate in scrimmages with other local wrestling clubs throughout the season. They are typically held on Saturday mornings and are optional but highly encouraged. No standings, team scores or wins/losses are recorded at scrimmages. They are appropriate for all levels and are a great way to get live wrestling experience in a low-pressure environment and a short amount of time.
LSYW will compete against other local youth wrestling clubs throughout the season. Coaches coordinate ahead of each dual meet to match wrestlers based on weight, experience, and age. Dual meets are typically held during regularly-scheduled practice nights. Individual match results contribute to an overall team score for the meet. Coaches from both teams coordinate ahead of each meet to match wrestlers in order to get in as many matches as possible in a short amount of time.
Tournaments are scheduled throughout New England on many weekends in December, January, February and March. The coaches will determine which tournaments are appropriate to attend based on previous experience with the tournament (how well it’s run, competition, etc.) and consult with parents and wrestlers to decide which tournaments they wish to compete in.
