Welcome to Mt. Zion Youth Wrestling!

MTZ Kids Wrestling Club has been supporting the Jr. High and High School wrestling teams for decades. We are proud to be a long standing part of the Mt. Zion Wrestling Community. 

MTZ Kids Wrestling Club is designed to teach your child the fundamentals of wrestling in a fun and family friendly atmosphere that focuses on safety. Wrestling is an individual sport where your child learns self-reliance and tenacity. It is also a team sport where each wrestler is supported by his teammates at practices and tournaments.

Wrestlings physical demands and training also blends well with other sports, particularly football, soccer, baseball, gymnastics and basketball where participation in one improves performances in the others.
