Roaring Fork Wrestling Club & Aspen Parks and Recreation Department
The Roaring Fork Wrestling Club is a youth wrestling program open to kids 5-12 in the Roaring Fork Valley. All skill levels are welcomed, novice to expert, we will challenge them all. Wrestling is a High School, College, World, and Olympic Sport for both Girls and Boys.
Come give it a try!
Runs March 13 thru April 27.
Mondays 6-7pm at Crystal River Elementary School Gym, Wednesdays 6-7pm at Aspen Elementary School and Thursdays 5:30-6:30pm at Defiance Gym in Glenwood Springs.
The main reason is because it is FUN! Wrestling appeals to kids of all shapes and sizes. Wrestling is one of the few sports where you compete against kids of the same size. No big guy versus little guy, everybody is equally paired. In the sport of wrestling you will use every muscle in your body and even find muscles you didn’t know existed. Wrestling is both a team and individual sport, you wrestle for a team but when you wrestle it's one on one! The sport has the potential of providing a free college education, the ability to travel and compete around the world, and represent your country in the Olympics!
