We can't wait to have your youngster join the most fun and dedicated sport around!

Who Are We...WILDCATS!
The West Bend Wildcats is a youth wrestling club for children ages 4 through 8th grade.
Our club is run by volunteer coaches and a volunteer board with a focus on teaching the fundamentals of wrestling, building character and responsibility.
The season typically starts the 1st Tuesday in December through the State Tournament in late March. HOWEVER, this year we will begin the season over a month earlier to get more mat time!! We will begin the season on Tuesday, October 12th at 6pm. More details to come!
New to wrestling?? Come out on Tuesday-Thursday, October 12-14 from anytime between 6-8pm and check it out!
The great thing about wrestling is that you are not tied down to going to every tournament that's offered. You and your wrestler get to choose which tournaments to take part in. These range in distance from West Bend and skill level. Our Head Coach has a list of tournaments in the area that will help you navigate which tournament(s) are best suited for your wrestler! We may also have some Duals (like how the High School Wrestlers do it) wherein, we would really like to have ALL Wildcats present to support the team! These are amazing to be a part of and really build on the team aspect of wrestling (since it is often an individual sport at tournaments).
All of these breakdowns are dependent on skill level and years of experience.
Registration costs: Only $225 for the entire year! Wrestlers practicing one day per week will have a significant discounted rate of $175 (little cats and wrestlers who can only make one night per wk); two days per week and/or three days per week will be $225. For families with 2 or more kids there is a $25 discount per child after the first wrestler's full amount. There is a 3% transaction fee charged by Sports Engine.
Registration Time: Want to save some money on dues? Then register early! Early registration opens on 9/15/21 and runs until 9/30/21 at 11:59pm. You will get a $25 discount on registration fees!
If you register midnight, 10/1/21 and beyond, you will have to pay the full dues (seen above). There will be no exceptions to this, so please go in early and register well ahead on 9/30/21 if you want to save.
EVERY wrestler also MUST get a $50 "USA Card" BEFORE registering with the West Bend Wildcats. https://www.usawmembership.com/login
