Nov 16th: Alabama Kids Duals
This will be our first tournament this season and is a Duals based format, meaning that wrestlers will be randomly assigned to a team; wrestlers will compete on assigned team against other teams created from the registrants for this tournament.  This is an excellent opportunity for new wrestlers to meet others from across the state and experience wrestling in a laid-back, fun event before traditional tournaments begin. The focus is on wrestling etiquette, match format, and confidence building. Kid Duals is a great way to kick-off youth season for returning wrestlers with invaluable mat time.  This tournament WILL count towards seeding for the Youth State Tournament so weigh-ins are required.

Wrestlers must have an AAU Card and pre-registration is required (link below).  Registration will be first come – first serve, with a cap of 200 wrestlers. There will be NO manual registrations allowed on tournament day. Tournament fee is paid online and includes a T-shirt.

Tumbling for Youth, MS, HS Wrestlers
Wrestling isn't just about moves, it takes strength, flexibility, power, and tremendous body awareness to win matches.  These tumbling classes will introduce wrestlers to foundational tumbling skills to aid in increased balance, flexibility, strength and agility.  Whether you are just starting out or have had several years on the mat, all wrestlers will benefit from this program.

Level 1: Starting with basic forward/backward rolls and cartwheels, you'll progress towards handstands, front/back walkovers, roundoffs and connecting skills.

Level 2: This breaks down a back handspring into sections, so athletes learn the correct shapes, and proper body control to perform standing, running and combination handsprings. Advancing further, wrestlers continue on their journey to flipping with a focus on tuck shaping and learning how to connect a flip from a back handspring.
