Saturday & Sunday, Jan 16th & 17th Youth Results

Another GREAT weekend for Farmington Youth Wrestling, we are so proud of our young WRESTLERS!

Sunday, we had 54 wrestlers participate at our homegrown ‘BRING 1, BRING ALL’ Youth Team which was held at Farmington High School. With so many eager youth wrestling TIGERS, we had to split up our youth into two teams, ‘BLACK’ & ‘ORANGE’ teams.  Booth teams wrestled with great effort and showcased their growing wrestling skills as we competed against the youth programs of Chaska/Chanhassen, Rochester, Buffalo, and New Praque.  Thank you to all parents and coaches who made this a successful Team meet for our youth!  We got many compliments from other youth program coaches for our teams enthusiasm, effort and how well the tournament was organized and run collectively.  It is always nice to hear from other youth wrestling programs congratulating us on our Farmington program!
