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?
*Must have a minimum of 2 prior years knowledge of wrestling
Billy’s Bingo Fundraiser
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.
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.
