2 ROOKIE NIGHTS - Oct. 18 & 20
All new wrestlers and families interested in joining the Batavia Wrestling Club, we have two free rookie nights. Feel free to drop in either or both nights to see the room and let your son or daughter experience the sport of wrestling. The event runs from 6-7pm in the Batavia High School Wrestling Room. Please enter through the northwest athletic entrance.
We will have coaches and experienced wrestlers in the room teaching fundamentals and playing games. While the kids are learning about wrestling, parents can attend an informational parent meeting. We will review registration, schedule, expectations, coaching opportunities, volunteering and many other important aspects of the club. If you have any questions, please contact Jason Lindstrom at 630-270-9681. Hope to see you there!

We are an Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation (IKWF) and USA Wrestling affiliated club for kids between the ages of 5 and 14 in Batavia. Our primary goal is to prepare young athletes to be good people and successful high school wrestlers. This includes academics as well as athletics.
We are an IRS designated 501c(3) Charitable Organization and an Illinois based Not-For-Profit Corporation. All of our coaches, board members, and committee chairs are volunteers, and all revenue generated from fundraising activities goes directly to offset the costs of running the club and to support the Batavia High School wrestling program.
We are fully supported by the Batavia High School Wrestling coaching staff. Aside from having great wrestling credentials and strong community support, our club also prides itself in maintaining the highest level of integrity in all areas.
The Batavia Wrestling Club is open to all Batavia wrestlers who share our goals. Please explore our website to learn more. You may also submit a request to be added to our mailing list by contacting any member of the Batavia Wrestling Club board of directors.
