The first Madison mat session of the fall club is Tuesday, September 16th.

There will be practices at Madison on Tuesdays:

  • September 16th, 23rd, and 30th

  • The Madison High School Wrestling Club is a USA Wrestling charted club, with USA Wrestling certified coaches.

All Madison wrestlers will have their individual USA Wrestling membership paid for by the program. This is a full membership, good for an entire year.

There are also practices every Monday and Thursday, 6 – 8 PM and Saturday, 1 – 3 PM, at Beat the Streets.

Beat the Streets is located in Manhattan at 145 Thompson Street, just south of Houston. You will need a completed BTS Parent Authorization Form when you show up for the first time.

IN SEASON practices start on November 1st. We practice every school day and Saturday in November. Competitions start in December.

All new wrestlers will need a pair of wrestling shoes. It is not necessary to spend a lot of money, there are many decent shoes available that are far less expensive than the sneakers you are probably wearing.

All new wrestlers will need headgear. This is to prevent cauliflower ear, and headgear is mandatory for all matches during the season. Sharing headgear with another wrestler is not an option. Hygiene is important.
