The goal of the Central Middle School Eden Prairie Wrestling Program is to create champion wrestlers through a good work ethic and an emphasis on wrestling techniques.  An Eden Prairie wrestler is expected to demonstrate good character on and off the mat, as well as give 110% in the practice room, all while maintaining an appropriate GPA.  Although wrestling WILL NOT determine your value as a person in life, this team WILL teach you values that will take you far in life after graduation.  By adhering to the team rules and taking responsibility for one’s actions, the EP wrestler will learn how to make a commitment that carry them into high school.

Middle School season runs Mid-November thru Mid- January and practices are held Monday - Thursday from 2:20 - 3:45 pm (with optional practice on Fridays) in the auxiliary gym "wrestling room". EP CMS competes in the classic "Middle School" Lake Conference including Wayzata West, Plymouth, Minnetonka West, Wayzata Central, Robbinsdale, Hopkins West, Hopkins North and Minnetonka East.
