Kingsway Junior Wrestling Completes Another Successful Season

Kingsway Junior Wrestling recently completed another successful season. The organization, consisting of 137 local wrestlers from K-8 grades, continues to be one of the most competitive junior wrestling programs in all of South Jersey. This is evidenced by the following accomplishments:

  • Tri-County Middle School Team Champions: Our middle school team defeated Woodstown 47-27 in the semi-finals and Pennsville 46-36 in the championship to claim the Tri-County team title. The Pennsville match took a total team effort to avenge a regular season loss. Overall the team went 8-1 on the season. Congratulations to Josh Palmucci, Lance Crawford, Trey Mcleer, Aiden Jackson, Zach Sladek, John Sambogna, Jake Gentile, Finn McFadden, Cheney Kinner, Derek Coleman, Shawn Williams, Jake Ritchie, Victor Coleman, Noah Falabella, Kevin Pandorf, Chris Mollo, Sean Horner and Scott Soloman for their contributions throughout the season. With only one 8th grader and many strong wrestlers moving up to the middle school team we are poised for another great season next year. 
  • South Jersey Wrestling League Dual Team 3rd Place: Our K-8 dual team finished 3rd place in the very competitive 14 team South Jersey Wrestling League. Overall the team was 10-5 on the season including wins over Clearview, Marlton, Eastern, Washington Township and Haddonfield. 
  • Woodstown Duals K-6 Team Champions: Our K-6 dual team defeated Pitman, Delsea, Vineland in pool matches and Pennsville 56-13 in the finals to capture the Woodstown Duals K-6 team championships. Congrats to our younger wrestlers for a great job against the best local competition. 
  • Individual Champs: Congratulations to the following wrestlers for winning individual championship in their respective divisions: 
    • Tri-County Middle School: Jake Gentile, Finn McFadden, Shawn Williams

Kingsway Junior Wrestling Announces Exciting Changes for the Upcoming 2012-2013 Season

- Kingsway Junior Wrestling joins the South Jersey Wrestling League: Our organization has decided to move to the SJWL which includes perennial wrestling powers including Paulsboro, Timber Creek and Eastern as well as local rivals such as Clearview and Washington Township. The league offers both dual team and exhibition formats. The dual team will offer our wrestlers a chance to compete in a team environment where a team score will be kept. The exhibition format will be similar to what we had in the Tri-County league where wrestlers are matched up based on weight and skill level. More details will be available around the creation of the dual team and the new league shortly.

- Kingsway Junior Wrestling regains control of the Kingsway Middle School program: The middle school program will again be under the control of Kingsway Junior Wrestling. This will allow for much more flexibility for our middle school wrestlers. It will also create an opportunity for middle school wrestlers from all Kingsway sending districts to wrestle together which was not possible last year due limitations put in place by the local school districts.  

The registration fee for all wrestlers this season will again be $90. Online registration ( is now open and we have announced two of our in-person registration dates. All of the registration information is available on our website.

The Wrestling Season Starts Next Week

Practices start next week and we are looking forward to a great season of wrestling.  Here is some information that will be helpful.

Practice times and locations are posted here  Please make sure your wrestler is equipped with wrestling shoes, headgear and a water bottle. Please have them wear non-baggy shorts/sweats and a t-shirt.  Also, proper attention to skin care is a must in wrestling.  Be sure to protect your wrestler and others by giving them a soapy shower immediately after practice and matches.  If you notice a rash or other skin ailment please consult your doctor and inform a coach immediately.

We have published our schedule for the year here  If you are new to wrestling you will notice that we have a mix of team matches and tournaments listed.  We would like to see every wrestler at all of our team matches.  However tournaments are optional.  If you have any questions on this please ask your coach, team mom or send us an e-mail.

We have also launched the Kingsway Team Store where you can purchase gear for your wrestler.  This store will close on December 4 for the first print cycle.  This will enable us to have the gear in time for X-mas.  If you are wondering what to buy for your wrestler, we are recommending 'Wrestling Package 1'.  Samples will be available the first week of practice if you want to check sizes.

We will also be collecting birth certificates and signed forms.  Forms can be found here  We will need the Policies and Procedures, Code of Conduct and Waiver completed and signed.

Your team mom will be following up on all of these during the first week of practice.  However if you ever have any questions please e-mail us at .

Go Dragons!

New Sponsorship Program

We are pleased to announce our new sponsorship program for the 2011-2012 season.  This program is critical to the program's future success.  It is also a great way for businesses to advertise as it will provide exposure across the Kingsway sending districts and across South Jersey when we travel.  The funds collected will go to offset the annual registration fee which was reduced from $150 to $90 this season.

Please visit the 'Handouts' section of our website to view the sponsorship letter and application.  We are still accepting Level 1 sponsorships which includes the business logo on the back of a warm-up t-shirt we will be giving to every wrestler in our program this year.  Other options include the business logo on our sponsor banner which will be on display at all events, a program and our website.

Go Dragons!
