Youth Wrestling

Welcome to Eden Prairie Takedown Association's Youth Wrestling Program. We provide wrestling instruction for youth (boys and girls) Pre-K to 6th Grade.  Our purpose is to provide a healthy, fun environment while increasing interest and supporting wrestling at all levels.  We emphasize the fundamentals that will help develop each child physically and mentally. While winning and losing are components of wrestling, competition and participation are strongly emphasized.  EPTA promotes a safe, positive and friendly setting where kids who are interested in wrestling can learn about this sport. We focus on sportsmanship, respect, and life skills that will be used both on and off the mat.

We have partnered with Eden Prairie's Community Education program and offer our youth program through their site.  We have also partnered with JJ Trained Wrestling School to bring best in class wrestling technique and coaching to our room.  This program is great for all levels of wrestlers, but will focus on the basic fundamentals of wrestling.  All practices will take place at Eden Prairie High School's Wrestling Room.


Looking for a program to help increase your child's strength, flexibility and agility?   Or a practice that prepares you for success and discipline in other sports?  Wrestling is a great companion to football, martial arts and many more sports. The Eden Prairie Youth Wrestling program is for all youth (boys and girls) in Eden Prairie and its surrounding communities in Pre-K - 6th grade. It is geared for all levels of wrestlers but will focus on the fundamentals and fun of wrestling.
