Sign up is now available on Trackwrestling for the 2018 Hortonville Youth Wrestling Tournament. This is an open tournament for boys and girls grades pK to 8th grade. We target 4 wrestler brackets where possible. Please feel free to register at the link below.
New this year is a GIRLS ONLY tournament. We will run this event concurrent with the open tournament. This is our first year trying this format. We plan on having a dedicated girl's mat and staffed with some of our local female wrestlers. This is a great way for girls to give wrestling a shot and should make for a very competitive event.
