Registration for the Ridgewood Junior Wrestling (RJW) program is now open for the upcoming 2017-18 season. RJW is a recreational program for Ridgewood children. The goal is to teach the sport of wrestling in a fun & safe environment, and to provide competition that is appropriate for each child’s skill level.
Registration is open to children in grades K-8. The season starts at the end of November and runs through the beginning of March. Practices are held at Ridgewood High School. Wrestlers with 0-3 years of experience typically practice on Monday and Thursday evenings from 6:30-8 pm while wrestlers with more experience practice Tuesday at 7 pm and Thursday evenings at 7:45 pm. All wrestlers will have the opportunity to wrestle in several matches and tournaments depending on their interest level and receive a uniform as part of the registration fee.
RJW also fields competitive dual teams that compete in the Twin County Junior Wrestling League (TCJWL) and the Northern New Jersey Youth Wrestling League (NNJYWL). In addition, we sponsor opportunities for all wrestlers to compete in District, Region and State tournaments. These dual leagues and tournaments provide opportunities for interested wrestlers to gain competitive wrestling experience. Wrestling is a sport that is highly complementary to success in other sports, while also building character, a strong work ethic and other successful traits unique to the sport of wrestling.
