Requirements

Fees

The registration fee for this year is $50.00.  Siblings in the program will pay$35.00.  Franklin Township Wrestling is a non-profit program, and any money raised is applied directly to benefit the program and its participants. Some of the costs incurred are:  uniforms, t-shirts, coaches’ shirts, referee fees, tournament fees, etc.

Equipment

A wrestler’s equipment consists of a one-piece uniform called a singlet, which we will supply.

Your child is required to wear headgear and can purchase them at a sporting goods store like Efingers or Sports World.  Because of sanitary reasons it is not a good idea to “borrow” other children’s headgear.

Wrestling shoes are recommended but not mandatory.  Lightweight indoor sneakers can be substituted.

Wrestle Offs

If there are 2 children in the same weight class the children must wrestle off for that weight class position.  Whoever wins that wrestle off will be the lead wrestler of that class. The child who lost the wrestle off can challenge the winner if that child loses a match (Only in Raritan Valley). All children will wrestle every match. Click here for Glossary & Points System.
