Welcome to the Osage Little Devil Wrestling Club! The goal of this guide is to familiarize you with the
sport of wrestling. Not al parents, families & children have a wrestling background. Hopeful y, the
information outlined in this guide wil help introduce you to the sport.

Wrestling Club Goals

The simple goal of the Little Devil Wrestling club is to introduce your child to the sport. We want your
child to have a fun and positive experience. Like most athletic activities, we wil emphasize the
fundamentals of the sport, including the basic skil s, dril s and technique. Every wrestler from grade
school to the Olympic wrestling levels concentrate on the fundamentals. Dril s may often be routine,
even monotonous, but are necessary in your child’s wrestling development. Conditioning, stretching,
flexibility and many of our dril s are basic to al other sports; including footbal , soccer, basketbal and
basebal .
Questions and Suggestions
When you register your child in the club, you may also voice your questions and suggestions. If there
are ever questions or suggestions, please contact a coach or the club board members.

Athletic Development

Please understand that your child may not have instant success in wrestling. Some wrestlers do not
start winning when they are first introduced to this sport. There wil be other wrestlers who started
earlier, have more wrestling experience, or may at this time be more athletical y inclined. In some cases,
it may be years before your young wrestler develops the competitive edge. But through continual y
practicing and effort they can achieve it. Remember it’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon.
The physical, emotional and competitive stages of athletic development wil vary for every young athlete.
Some children may be ready for tournament competition as a 1st grader; others may develop this
confidence later. You know and understand your child’s development more than anyone. Don’t push or
drive too hard until you feel the child is ready. Give your child the choice, listen to what they say and
give a lot of praise and encouragement. Start slow and introduce more wrestling when you feel they are
ready. The coach and other parents can assist you with some insight into this decision.

Parental Support

We strongly encourage parents to attend wrestling practice to participate and learn with their child,
especial y at the younger levels. Parents may not have wrestling experience, but their involvement is
critical. Your child’s progress in the sport can develop at a faster rate if you are assisting or are visible at
the practice sessions. With a smal number of coaches and a high number of wrestlers, working with
your child and other wrestlers increases individual development. We would also like to ask for your
support, helping at the Little Devil Sponsored Wrestling Tournaments. This tournament benefits the total
wrestling program at the club, junior and senior high levels.

Competition, Winning & Losing

Unfortunately, some wrestling tournaments available to your child do not take into account your child’s
athletic development or experience. Tournaments take into account weight and age or year in school.
On occasion it is not uncommon for your young wrestler to meet more physical y dominant and talented
wrestlers. Sometimes tournaments can be difficult on the development of young, inexperienced
wrestlers. Regardless of whether your child wins or loses, always reinforce the positive. In an individual
wrestling match, discuss the things that went wel . Emphasize the importance of participation, not
winning or losing. Losing can be more traumatic to a young wrestler due to the individual nature of the
sport. Losing in a team sport may not be as emotional y difficult because the loss is shared with others.
Our club along with many other clubs have lost a number of good athletes and potential wrestlers
because of the lack of short term wrestling success. Again, individual success in this sport is not always
instant and wil develop with ongoing practice, mat time (competition), and parental encouragement.

Wrestling Styles

There are three primary styles in amateur wrestling: folkstyle, freestyle and Greco-Roman. Folkstyle is
the traditional American style of wrestling coached in the Osage Wrestling Club. It is also the style
wrestled at the junior high, high school and American col ege levels. Freestyle and Greco-Roman are
the international y recognized styles of wrestling. It is the style you wil watch at the Summer Olympic
Games. Although similar to folkstyle, there are differences in scoring, strategy and technique. Freestyle
wrestling is encouraged for the advanced youth folkstyle wrestler, which is offered in the spring at
various locations. Most of the place winners at the state high school tournament have strong freestyle
Equipment & Dress
For club practices: shorts, tennis shoes and a tight-fitting T-shirt are al that we require. Loose and
baggy clothing is discouraged because hands and fingers can get twisted or bent. Sweat pants or
kneepads can be worn if the knees become tender from contact with the mat. Wrestling shoes,
headgear, and wrestling singlets are optional. At the youth level practices, there is general y not enough
contact to warrant the use of headgear. Headgear, however, is recommended to prevent rubbing,
banging or twisting of the ear causing “cauliflower ear” (swel ing and hardening of ear soft tissue).
Mouthpieces are not required but encouraged.
We ask that al wrestlers wear a clean pair of tennis or wrestling shoes. Do not wear the same shoes
that you wear outside. We need to keep the wrestling mats clean at al times. Stocking feet are not
recommended because they provide limited traction.
The same type of clothing worn at practice is accepted at most tournaments. Some tournaments may
require headgear and most youth are dressed in the ful wrestling attire to include headgear, singlet and
wrestling shoes.
Equipment costs:
Singlet: $10 to rent
Equipment can be purchased from most local sporting goods or shoe stores. Wrestling catalogs are
available from the club coordinator or coach.
The Play It Again Sports stores often has a stock of used wrestling shoes.

Practice Session Rules

Please review these rules with your child:
1) Please, no street shoes on the wrestling mats at any time. Sand and dirt deteriorate the mat
surfaces. Parents and wrestlers, please remove all footwear before stepping on the mats.

2) No horseplay.
3) Do not play on fitness machines or equipment.
4) Please, no climbing or running up the wall mats No Swinging on ropes!
5) Make sure you take home everything that you brought to practice. Shoes, shirts, headgear are
often left behind and disappear.

6) Report all injuries to the coach immediately
7) Many nights there is a High School basketball game going on in the Gym, please help us to
keep kids out of all locker rooms during these game nights. It disrupts coaches and teams
preparing to play. Restrooms in the far East-West hallway and/or commons area will need to be
used during those times

Injuries & Skin Conditions
Wrestling is a contact sport. Jammed fingers, bloody noses, and sore muscles are common in this sport.
Major injuries in al contact sports can occur, but are not common. We make an effort to monitor
practices careful y so il egal holds or potential y dangerous predicaments are halted at once. Because of
the number of wrestlers at club practices, it is difficult to see everything at al times. If at any time you
see a wrestler in a move that looks potential y dangerous or hazardous, do not hesitate to stop the
wrestlers. Wrestling is a safe sport and has no more injuries than footbal , soccer, basketbal or basebal .
Please report al injuries to the coach immediately. Accident / injury insurance is not provided by the
club. Parents must carry health insurance for their child.
If at any time your child breaks out with a skin condition or rash, report it to the coach and see your
family doctor. On rare occasions we wil have a case of a rash break out on a wrestler. The most
common types of skin conditions are ringworm, impetigo, boils and cold sores. Although these
conditions are often blamed on the wrestling mat, the likely case of transmission is through bodily
contact. Rashes are often hard to track because transmission can take place in the classroom, at play or
contact with another wrestler. Our wrestling room is wel ventilated and the wrestling mats are
disinfected daily.

Wrestling Associations

There are two primary wrestling associations: USA Wrestling and the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU).
Some wrestling tournaments, general y few, may require that you purchase an AAU or USA Wrestling
Card. If you attend a tournament that requires a card, they are usual y available at the door. Proof of
date of birth may be required for these cards. These cards offer secondary injury insurance if your child
is injured at a tournament or practice. At this time Little Devil Mat Club is planning on purchasing
all AAU and USA card for those wrestlers who plan on participating in any of those events that
require them.
We wil register for cards and entry as a team in most cases for these tournaments
(please inquire if you want to attend any of these events).

Because of the popularity of the sport of wrestling in Iowa, it is possible to wrestle year around. The
traditional youth (Grades K - 8) folkstyle wrestling tournaments begin in November and end in early
April. Freestyle tourneys begin in March and end in July. Youth tournaments are held at most al
schools throughout the state. You can travel as much as you like, but it is not necessary. You can
participate in nearly 20 tournaments a year within an hour’s driving distance. As mentioned before most
tournament pairings are made by age / year in school and weight. Your young wrestler could be
bracketed in with more experienced wrestlers.
Youth tournaments are usual y available for grades K-8. Tournament entry costs range between $10.00-
$15.00. There is also an admission charge for parents and other children. Most tournaments are 4-man
round robin, so each wrestler has three matches consisting of 3 one-minute periods. Medals and
occasional trophies or ribbons are distributed to each wrestler at the end of the tourney. Weigh-in times
wil vary but are usual y on the same day of the
tournament. Some tournaments wil stagger the wrestling times for the different age/grade groups and
weigh-in times could vary. Breakfast and snacks are available at al tournaments.
The number of tournaments you attend is up to you. Grades 4 - 8 should attend four or more
tournaments a year. To supplement club practices, these tournaments offer the needed “mat time” for
success in the sport. Transportation to tournaments is the responsibility of the parent. The club is not
organized to provide this service. If you are unable to take your child, another parent may be traveling to
a tournament and wil ing to provide the transportation. Coaching at the tournaments may fal in the
hands of the parent, due to a coach unable to attend or they may be coaching someone else at that
time. Also, our club does not have a traveling coach. Even though you may not have a wrestling
background, don’t be afraid to go to mat side and cheer for your child. Feel free to ask another
experienced parent for help. Many times parents in the club or club assistants wil help coach the club
wrestlers during their matches.
Tournament Registration Forms
A master schedule of available tournaments wil be distributed to club members. We wil list al CLUB
tournaments that we would like you to attend so club wrestlers can support one another. We wil also
post other tournaments in the wrestling room and online at our club website. Tournament entry forms
may be picked up at our wrestling club practices. You wil also find them distributed at many of the youth
USA and AAU District & State Tournaments (Club pays entry fees for these tournaments)
During the middle and end of March, the AAU District and State Tournament is held. The top four
finishers at districts in each weight class qualify for the state tournament currently held in Des Moines at
Vets Auditorium. This tournament is open for Grades 3 - 8. AAU cards are required. These tourneys are
competitive but offer quality-wrestling experiences for young wrestlers. Entry forms wil be available at
club practices and we wil sign up as a team. As in years past, this is a great way to end the season win
or lose. USA Qualifier is also held in Osage on Feb 15th and the State tournament is held on March 6th
and 7th at the UNI Dome. The USA Card is a little more money then the AAU card but it can also be
used for freestyle in the spring.
Camps & Clinics
Wrestling camps and clinics are general y held in the summer months of June, July, and August.
Weeklong overnight or commuter camps are held at many of the state col eges and universities. These
weeklong camps are usual y available to youth wrestlers in grades 3 – 12 grade and range in cost from
$200 - $300. Costs include room, meals and a T-shirt. Camps are recommended for the serious youth
wrestler. Commuter camps or clinics vary in cost from $25 - $50.
We wish you the best of success in the sport of wrestling. I hope that this guide has sufficiently outlined
the opportunities ahead. Good luck!
Look forward to seeing everyone at Practices and Tournaments!
