WWS is a series of youth tournaments (elementary and middle school) that take place over the winter season. We just completed our inaugural season, and we sincerely thank the hundreds of families and coaches that made it so successful. Next year, we are considering adding a 6th tournament and expanding to two days to accommodate the growing demand for these unique events. We are also looking for bigger space since the demand for these events is so great.
Each WWS event has a different theme and features our E3 Philosophy to make these tournaments educational, entertaining and efficient for wrestlers, families and coaches.
Saturday, December 16 Wild Reindeer Takedown Tourney
Friday, December 22 Great Gobbler Open
Saturday, January 13 Rockin’ Robin Ribbon Day
Saturday, February 10 Rapid Wrestling Showdown
What is Rapid Wrestling?
Monday, February 19 President’s Day Challenge
Wrestlers who competed in at least two WWS events were eligible for the TOP Elementary or Middle School Championships.
OTHER FEATURES OF WWS
In addition to unique themes, WWS is the most innovative league in the nation for numerous reasons. Here are just some of the features of WWS:
* Unique “Time Slot” format allowing wrestlers to obtain 3 matches in roughly 90 minutes (while also arriving close to the start time)---all bouts are arranged in advanced and technology is used to enhance show-up rates; Nobody respects busy families’ valuable weekend time like WWS---we get families in and out quickly!
* Full circled mats and digital scoreboards for every match
* Minimal volunteer assistance required
* Different (and nice!) awards at every tournament (e.g., trophies, medals, ribbons)
* “This Week in Wrestling” presentations and Trivia Contests to help kids/families fall in love with our great sport
We are thrilled several new clubs are planning to become regular participants next season, and we look forward to another wonderful season.
