We are an elementary and middle school wrestling team in Memphis, TN, dedicated to introducing young men to the sport of wrestling and providing them with the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential in the sport. Our team usually has approximately 60-100 wrestlers from K-8th grade and all sizes. We practice three times a week at Christian Brothers High School and participate in tournaments on the weekends.
Our team is blessed with the best coaching staff in the Mid-South which includes past high school and college wrestlers that devote an incredible amount of time to develop great wrestlers and young people.
The Wave Wrestling program is the only wrestling club in the Mid-South that has developed wrestlers which have competed and earned medals at international competitions (e.g. World Championships, the Pan American Games), the US World Team Trials, the NCAA Division 1 wrestling tournament, the USA High School Nationals and had alumni win multiple TSSAA high school state championships. Also our youth wrestlers have placed at the Cliff Keen Youth Nationals, the USA Kids National Championships, Liberty Nationals and won numerous TN Kids State Championships.
Our program is dedicated to helping wrestlers to achieve their dreams no matter how high these goals may be, while also having a lot of fun! The Wave Wrestling Club has been holding our athletes to the highest standards on and off the mat for years now. We're committed to providing the highest quality instruction to all levels of athletes, beginners to advanced, in age-appropriate and engaging ways. While winning is fun and helps keep athletes excited about the sport, we recognize the most important aspect of competition and athletic training is improvement.
We strive to focus on improving in our behaviors, discipline, self-image, confidence, and wrestling. Through our sport, we have a unique opportunity to shape young lives and build character. Wrestling is the tool we use to develop boys into young men. The byproduct we get is a host of good wrestlers.
We carefully consider each practice to be a chance to get better in all aspects of our lives. Whether it's pushing our minds or bodies, we offer ample growth opportunities within our practices. From new techniques, to hard conditioning, to challenging fitness, we want to push our athletes past where they thought possible so they never recognize the limitations of impossible.
We aim to give our wrestlers every opportunity to earn and show growth with a rigorous competition schedule. We compete in multiple states throughout the season, typically running from October through the summer months. While some of our club members are satisfied with a local level of competition, others have earned national accolades. We aim to provide the level of involvement and competition that meets your expectations.
