If you are interested in the In-House (beginners) program click here.


WYSI will have a travel team that competes around the state in various individual tournaments.  The focus of this travel team is to teach higher level of technique in practices (lead by the high school staff), and to compete against some of the best wrestlers and clubs in the state.

Wrestlers that have at least 2 years of experience and/OR have wrestled in open state/regional tournaments in years past. Wrestlers who participate in the WYSI In-House program may be selected and offered a spot on the Travel team based on their progress throughout the beginner’s season.

Season Expectations

 - This travel team will practice twice per week and will wrestle in 4-5 state tournaments though out the season. 
 - The season will begin on January 10 and will conclude with the ISWA State tournament on March 11 

 - Practices will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Middle School wrestling room from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.

 - The tournament schedule has not been released yet, but that information will be sent to parents by the beginning of December. Most tournaments will be on Saturdays or Sundays.
