About us

Arlington Wrestling Club (AWC) Information.

AWC is the feeder program for the Arlington High School wrestling team.  We practice at Arlington High School, and compete in both USAW and AAU events in Tennessee and neighboring states. AWC was established in the fall of 2008 and is the local youth wrestling club for Pre-K through 8th  grader in Arlington, Lakeland and surrounding areas. 

AWC’s mission is:

1.       Serve as a development program for the AHS Wrestling program

2.       Promote youth wrestling awareness in Arlington and surrounding communities

3.       Develop mentally strong and physically fit athletes

 

Our club offers a competitive youth wrestling program that instills participants with  the ideals of hard work, sportsmanship, and respect. Competitions are primarily on  Saturdays with several tournaments in the Memphis area. Organized travel  opportunities are available for tournaments throughout Tennessee and the mid south. 

Our coaches have a combined 100+ years of wrestling and coaching experience from  across the country; including the states of Missouri, New Jersey, Wisconsin,  Oklahoma, South Carolina, W. Virginia, Illinois and Tennessee.

AWC is chartered through USA Wrestling, the national governing body of amateur wrestling AND AAU.

Practices

Held at Arlington High School gymnasium and wrestling facility, practices are held two to three times a week in the evenings from six to eight pm (varies by age). 

Competitions

Competitions take place in the form of dual meets, individual and dual tournaments.
