Our 2022-2023 regular season registration is currently open to male and female athletes ages 4 to 14 (K - 8th grade). To safely and effectively participate, we recommend that younger athletes be able to concentrate and actively participate in practice. If you feel that your young athlete is not yet at this level, we recommend you wait a year to register and very much look forward to seeing you next season. For middle school athletes, they can participate in both middle school and club wrestling activities.
We plan to open our season with a parent meeting date/time TBD. During this meeting we will introduce you to our head coach, Ryan Ferguson, and the rest of the wYc board members, as well as discuss the plans for the season and answer any of your questions. This will also be the time to turn in the IKWF registration paperwork, birth certificates (new wrestlers only), and fundraising checks.
All paperwork must be turned in before your athlete can begin practice. No exceptions.
We are looking forward to seeing your athlete at practice beginning November 7th & 8th. Wrestlers will be placed into three groups (Bronze Silver & Elite). All three groups will focus on the fundamentals of wrestling. However, the more advanced groups will be more challenging both mentally and physically. In order to advance to the elite group, each wrestler must demonstrate a continuous work ethic and drive to learn more advanced wrestling skills as well as be a great practice partner. We are confident that this system will streamline the process to make all wrestlers in every group more successful.
Practice begins the week of November 7th and 8th. All practices are held at the Yorkville Freshman Academy. Enter behind the school, to the right of the stadium.
Black Foxes Elite (Gold)
*If your athlete has wrestling experience with another club, please reach out to Head Coach Ryan Ferguson, to discuss which level your athlete should register for.

Over the spring/summer the club made improvements to the wrestling room by extending out walls so they are flush, adding brand new custom wall padding, painting the entire room with a fresh coat, and installing a brand new water fountain. All of these upgrades help keep the room in good shape so the athletes can perform.
