Goals of RAAA Youth Wrestling

Our intent is to create an opportunity for both boys and girls to develop their skills as wrestlers and student-athletes.  There will be opportunities during the season for wrestlers to exhibit their developing skills against wrestlers from surrounding communities, including tournaments and team dual meets.

Why Should Kids Wrestle?

  • Wrestling builds intensity, footwork, agility, balance, strength & body awareness
  • Wrestling teaches discipline
  • Wrestling instills confidence
  • Wrestling teaches self-reliance
  • Wrestling teaches mental toughness
  • Wrestlers learn how to respect their opponents
  • It is one of the few sports where a child's foot speed, ball-handling skills, hand-eye coordination, & size do not matter
  • There is room for everyone and wrestlers only compete against others in a similar skill/weight class

Billy’s Bingo Fundraiser - CLOSED AT THIS TIME

All RAAA sports volunteer time to call Bingo at Billy’s bar in Rockford as part of our fundraising efforts every Monday night 6-8:30 p.m.  Each sport is assigned a night on a rotating basis, and that sport is responsible for three parent volunteers to call Bingo in a casual, fun environment.  This is a significant fundraising activity for us and volunteers receive $10 off an upcoming RAAA registration fee.

Optional Tournaments

There are a number of open tournaments throughout the season. Visit The Guillotine, the preeminent amateur wrestling website for the Minnesota wrestling community, for the open tournament calendar.
