Gladiators is committed to providing year round wrestling opportunities to our wrestlers of all experience levels and provides Spring, Summer and Fall Team wrestling opportunities for K-12th grade wrestlers. Whether you are a novice, intermediate or advanced wrestler there is a team opportunity for you. Gladiators Teams are a great way to learn, compete and gain valuable wrestling experience. It is also a wonderful way to make friends with people from all over Somerset County and beyond.
HOW IT WORKS:
SCHEDULE: Gladiators Teams do not wrestle every weekend so that our kids have time to work on exposed weaknesses between matches. We participate in about 8 wrestling tournaments in any one season which lasts between 9 to 11 weeks. As a team member you are not required to attend every tournament. Since new tournament opportunities come up as the season develops our schedule is flexible and subject to adjustments. However, nothing is last minute.
WHERE WE WRESTLE: Typically we compete regionally in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania but on occasion we may travel to other states if parents desire. From time to time we may stay overnight if parents wish to support it.
TRANSPORTATION: Parents are responsible for transportation. HOWEVER, we typically carpool from “The Coliseum” and others share rides as well so there is no reason for a parent to go every weekend or ever if it is set up right.
K-5th Grade: Parents or Guardians must be at events. One parent can take responsibility for all K-5th grade wrestlers.
6th-12th Grade: Parents are not required to go to events. However, Gladiators Wrestling reserve the right to request your presence if we believe it is in the best interest of your child or team.
COSTS: The cost is just $279 per season to participate on a team.
