About About
The Cardinals Wrestling Club was formed by high school wrestling coaches to strengthen their high school team's wrestling skills in a fun environment at an affordable cost. The coaches built the club knowing that high school wrestling success comes with a strong off-season commitment, which includes training in the Olympic styles of freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling; learning new and effective techniques from great coaches; drilling intensely with tough practice partners; and gaining great competition experience.  CWC has a freestyle and Greco wrestling club charter through USA Wrestling-Ohio and are linked directly to Team Ohio, the Ohio AAU Junior Olympic Program.  All high school and middle school wrestlers are welcome to be a part of CWC.  For the last three years CWC has had great numbers with a full range of weights and skill levels; thus, there is something for everyone.
