SPRING (PK-8) - 4/2020-5/2020

Freestyle wrestling is a style of wrestling that is practiced throughout the world. Along with Greco Roman, it is one of the two styles of wrestling contested in the Olympic Games.

We will focus on the techniques that most youth wrestlers miss out on, covering the intricacies of Freestyle/Greco Roman wrestling that so many youth struggle with.  The majority of youth programs in America do almost exclusively Folkstyle wrestling leaving young athletes without the proper tools to compete in Freestyle tournaments. 

Check back in January for 2020 spring registration and session info.

PSA TRAINING (PK-8) - 6/2020-8/2020


Power, strength and agility training in sport gives an athlete an edge on his/her competition. And the great news is that it can all be learned through technique training, proper drills, and hard work. If you’re wanting and willing to get faster, let’s dive (or sprint!) into the action. This session for Pre­-K through 8th grade will enable you to reach new levels in your sport.  This is the one of the kid's favorite sessions and call it their Ninja Obstacle Course.

Check back in March for 2020 summer registration and session info.

JJ Trained Wrestling School strives to find a way to make wrestling accessible for all youth entering grades PK through 12.  As good stewards of the funds provided by the JJ Trained families, we attempt to find that balance between full accessibility and financial realities.  We continue to reach out to families that need assistance to make this wonderful participation a reality for their children interested in the sport of wrestling, and in the camaraderie and sportsmanship of our program.  It is our hope that no child is turned away for financial need reasons.

We do ask all families involved in JJ Trained to share a bond with the program, both financially and as a fan of their child.  Doing so allows even more children to be a part of our wrestling family.  Note that families that have not honored their scholarship or attendance agreements, or have not paid their shared balances due from previous years may not be eligible for scholarships in the current year.

The registration cost of our program is still one of the lowest in the entire area, especially considering the number of coaches we have in attendance at practices and tournaments.  And yet, this registration cost is sometimes out of the reach of some families.  If you would like to be considered for financial assistance (aka scholarship) as a part of the registration process, please complete and submit the Scholarship Application

If you would like to assist other families by contributing to our scholarship fund or have questions about the application, please email for further details.
