We are excited to have you as a part of our club. Please take a few minutes to read the following information to get familiar with how our program works:
Our program at DWC consists of three groups:
Drillers- Our advanced traveling team is limited to the top kids in our program. They will attend local, state, and national tournaments. This group's goal is to prepare wrestlers for the intensity and skill level of a high school wrestling room and beyond. You must be selected and have coach's approval to be in the Drillers group. We hope one day all of our wrestlers will advance to this group.
Roughnecks- Our intermediate group is generally made up of wrestlers with 1-3 years of wrestling experience under their belt. In this group, we will continue to build wrestling fundamentals and introduce higher level wrestling concepts. Our intermediate group will also attend local tournaments and compete in SCWAY and USA Wrestling state tournaments.
Lil-Bits - Our beginner group is designed to introduce kids to wrestling and build a love for the sport of wrestling.
Parents will be added to our Driller Wrestling Club “GroupMe” app for both iPhone and Android phone users. The GroupMe app may be downloaded from the App Store (iPhone) or the Play Store (Android).
GroupMe will be your primary source for updates to practice schedules, Events/ Tournament changes, and a convenient way for the Parents ask questions.
Here are some guidelines for all of our new DWC members to help make your first tournament a little easier. Please take some time to read over this list:
Lil Bits: Ages 5-7 with 2 years or less of wrestling experience.
Roughnecks: Ages 8-11 with 2 years or less of wrestling experience.
Drillers: Ages 12 and above or 8-11 with 2 years of experience or more.
