Clubs - Journeymen Wrestling's Mini-Men Program
Modeled directly after our high school club, Journeymen Wrestling. Mini Men Wrestling Club is one of the premier youth wrestling programs in upstate NY. This program is dedicated specifically to 1st - 8th grade student athletes. The practices are run with the structure and intensity of a varsity high school practice, but at a speed and content relevant for our younger wrestlers. This program attracts wrestlers from all over the Greater Capital Region, as well as VT and MA.
