Governor Murphy signed an executive order on October 12, 2020 allowing the immediate resumption of contact sports indoors including wrestling. We are cautiously optimistic that there will be a wrestling season albeit it may be limited to select competitions if any.
Chatham Youth Wrestling Club is working with Chatham Township and Chatham Joint Recreation Advisory Committee (CJRAC) to address items such as building occupancy limitations, waivers, daily screening, etc.
The Northern New Jersey Youth Wrestling League (NNJYWL) has been postponed til January 2021. The King of the Mat league is currently reviewing the situation, but availability of facilities remains a significant challenge. We are attempting to establish standard protocols.
The Chatham Wrestling Club consists of several youth programs, which are offered during both the regular season (November - March) and offseason. For younger wrestlers K-3rd grade, there is a Clinic (first year wrestlers) and the Novice program, which are kids with at least a year of experience. For kids 4-8th grade, there is the Travel Team program, which competes in the Northern NJ Youth Wrestling League. If you're looking for more wrestling exposure during the season or the off-season, check out Cougar Club, which gives you information on tournaments, clinics, camps and private wrestling clubs to help your child improve and stay active in the sport.
Please see more in Programs and About Us. If you would like information on Private Wrestling Clubs in the areas, please see Clubs under the Wrestling Room tab.
