Wrestling is one of the oldest sports on the planet and an original Olympic sport. It is a combat sport where matches are done individually at tournaments as well as team competition dual meets.

It doesn’t matter whether you are big or small or anywhere in between. There are 14 weight classes starting at 106 lbs (boys)/101 lbs (girls) and ending at 285 lbs (boys)/235 lbs (girls). It also doesn’t matter if you are stocky or lanky. There is no specific wrestling body type.

There are no try-outs. If you come to practice and work hard in practice…you are on the team. We do not care if you’ve never done a sport or thought of yourself as an athlete. Our training is very physically demanding, and we have a team of coaches with state, national, and international-level competition experience to forge warriors out of any girl or boy with the determination, dedication, and will to be one.

Lowell Wrestling is the reigning SF Section champion with a section record 31-1 over the last four years and over a dozen CIF State Championships qualifiers. We expect to have 20 returning wrestlers this season (13 boys and 7 girls) and hope to gain at least 15 new wrestlers.
