SPACE IS LIMITED!!!
The IKWF season may have been pushed back to January, but that doesn't mean wrestling has to wait! The FVWC has partnered again with Push Wrestling to provide training for the balance of the pre-season. Practices will include individual drills, wrestling-specific techniques, and strength/conditioning to build general athleticism. Protocols will be enforced to ensure participant safety.
Each wrestler must obtain their own 2020-21 USA Wrestling membership card on or after 9/1/20, but before they can attend their first session. Visit https://www.usawmembership.com. The fee for this card will be deducted from your regular season club fees when the IKWF season starts.
