    Held Saturday mornings or early evenings starting in January.  Each wrestler is paired with a wrestler from another area team.  Pairs are determined by similarity in age (no more than 2 years apart), weight (no more than a 10% differential), experience and skill level.  These are held at home and away.
  • Tournaments
