Algonquin Wrestling is a developing team. We have some very accomplished athletes and two young coaches who lead the team with enthusiasm and knowledge. While not as well known as other sports in the area, wrestling is a great form of exercise and helps to develop self confidence and character. Follow our blog to get the most up to date information on our team. Hopefully you will be inspired to come out and check us out.
