Whether your young athlete is just entering wrestling for the first time or is a veteran of the sport for several years, the Mishawaka Wrestling Club is the place to be. From their first take down, or learning referee’s position, all the way until qualifying for state their senior year of high school, we’ve worked hard to create an environment where athletes can learn, thrive, and be a part of our Wrestling Family!
We frequently have club wrestlers winning or placing at local, regional, state, and yes, even national tournaments! But our program isn’t isolated to elite wrestlers. Every top performer has to start somewhere, and we take pride in the development of skills and growth in potential for our wrestlers. Ask coaches at the highest levels – drilling on fundamentals and perfecting the basic skills is important from beginner to expert.
All Mishawaka Wrestling Club practices take place at our new facility at 4614 S Burnett Dr, South Bend, IN 46614. Our club season and coinciding practices typically begins around Thanksgiving each year and extends through mid March for the ISWA Folkstyle State Tournament. Freestyle and Greco Roman seasons pick-up from their and go to the ISWA State Freestyle/Greco State Tournament in early May.
Practice and competition schedules will be posted to our Events & Schedule Page. However, as a general rule, practices will be twice a week in the evenings. Tournaments will be held in several locations throughout the state and in Southwest Michigan on designated weekends. Wrestlers are welcome and encouraged to attend, but are not required. Coaches will be present at designated tournaments.
Please register your wrestler now, and don’t forget the required USA Wrestling Card.

Joining the club will allow your children to have fun learning these valuable life skills while they get ahead of their future competition.
