Littleton “Tiger Wrestling” does not charge for membership; however, for insurance reasons we also require all participants to be registered as active members of USA wrestling; see link here for the USA Wrestling Folkstyle Membership:

As an official Massachusetts USA Wrestling Club wrestlers will also have the option to participate in 2021-2022 Folkstyle wrestling tournaments

Registration is therefore a 2-Step Process.

Dress Code for Practices:
Wrestlers should bring clean wrestling shoes and headgear for practices. Wrestling shoes should not be worn outdoors. Do not wear clothing with zippers, snaps, or other metal attachments on the mats as these pose a safety risk.

Wrestling Gear
If you’re just getting started, it’s good enough to just have a T-shirt, shorts, wrestling shoes and headgear for practice. Mouthpieces are only required for kids with braces.
We will also have a shoe swap which will allow wrestlers to swap shoes with other members when they no longer fit.

What Wrestlers Need for Practice Overview:

  • Clean athletic shoes or wrestling shoes, t-shirt and shorts
  • Thermos of bottle of drink to stay hydrated
  • Head Gear will be provided and must be worn for safety
  • No Jewelry
  • Fingernails neatly
  • If braces are worn a mouth guard is required.

Volunteers
We encourage parents to help with set up and stowage of mats before and following practice; please let us know if you are interested

Coaches Wanted!
Littleton Youth Wrestling is an all-volunteer organization (donation funded .org). We are currently looking for assistant coaches and volunteers. Being an assistant does not require you to have experience in wrestling, just a willingness to participate and supervise the youngsters. All volunteers who interact with wrestlers will need to complete a CORI background.

NO WRESTLING OR COACHING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! If you want to volunteer to be a coach, PLEASE ask– we are happy to have you.

***Please note that these practices are suitable for ALL kids who want to learn/try the sport of wrestling.
Board members are required to participate in board meetings and facilitate the working of the wrestling program. Even if you don’t know a takedown from a half-nelson (and don’t want to know) you can help make our program successful.
To keep the program healthy and financially stable, we may organize several fundraising events each season. We also welcome your active participation in all other aspects of the LYW organization. There will be many opportunities to help out and get involved during the course of the season. We appreciate your input and look forward to your involvement in making this a better program for all the kids!
