Snow Canyon

Little League Wrestling

We are changing the start date for our Little League Wrestling Program. We apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience that this may cause.

We feel that this is a necessary move to enhance our program and most importantly, to provide the greatest benefit for the greatest number of children.

See reasons for the move below…

Pro’s for Little League Wrestling in the Spring
-Won’t have to compete with high school boys and girls basketball for gym space.
-Little League Football players can participate (Many Little League Tackle Football players do not wrestle in the fall because it conflicts with football practice and games.)
-Match up with the rest of Southern Utah counties, Clark County, Nevada, etc. This will give us a larger competition pool by competing with teams outside of our little St. George area group.
-Allows for greater focus on youth by not having high school coaches trying to run little league and high school pre-season conditioning and early regular season at the same time.
-Let the local club teams run their Fall and Winter practices and traveling competitions without conflicting with our Spring schedule.
-Greater number of potential participants in the program as well greater number of competitors at local tournaments by being available for more than just St. George area youth athletes.

Please help spread the word that our Little League Wrestling start date has been moved to sometime after the high school season concludes (TBA – sometime shortly after Valentine’s Day next February, 2015).

In the meantime, we will keep you informed of any other changes or announcements.
