North Shore Classes

Ninjas In Training

Ages 5 yrs. – 11 yrs. (Max. 30 athletes/session)

Our Ninjas in Training group will be focused solely on learning!!! We do not believe in a competitive focus in this age group. We believe at this age kids should be focused on learning wrestling, improving their motor skills, getting stronger and having fun. Ninjas will practice twice a week for one hour; practice will include a dynamic warm up, tumbling, isometric strength exercises, wrestling technique, live wrestling and games. Practices will be run at a high pace to keep kids focused and engaged. Ninjas will have 3 sessions that consist of roughly ten week segments.

Spring Class

  • April 4- May 24

Elite Wrestling

Ages 10 yrs. & Up

This group is where we expect young wrestlers to start taking the sport more seriously. Practices are four days a week year round, with the exception of HS students who will not attend during their competitive season. In AWA, classes are limited to 40 students and are separated by skill level. In the less experienced group there are 3 main focuses: tumbling, which will encourage students to learn body control, isometric and plyometric strength, which students will need to be successful at the higher levels of wrestling, and technical knowledge, which we emphasize so that kids understand the ins and outs of wrestling at a very young age. In the more experienced group we will focus on fine tuning techniques and have more live wrestling. You can join this group at any juncture and if you are serious about achieving your goals in wrestling you should do so as soon as possible.

-4x a week elite class is completely year round however HS kids will not practice with AWA during their season.  Wrestlers can start at any time.

– 1x and 2x a week classes will happen periodically and will be posted in our blog when they happen.
