About

The Motown Grappler Club is a not for profit organization dedicated to providing kids, ages 6 to 14 years, in the Morristown area the chance to learn the sport of wrestling through competition.

The children also learn the important values of self confidence, motivation and leadership.

The club was founded in 2001 by two brothers, Matt and Bryan Manahan, who initially funded the program from their own savings.

We now rely upon contributions from our sponsors and the income from our annual King of the Mat tournament  to help fund and support the initiatives of our organization.  We look forward to working with your child this season.

The Wrestlers

PRE-CLINIC

Wrestler's entry level to the sport. Designed purely to introduce kids to wrestling, with basic instruction and supervised simulated wrestling. Games make it fun, to encourage kids to come back to wrestle at the next level. (1st and 2nd grades)​

CLINIC

Wrestler's first exposure to competitive wrestling, in an informal Jamboree format plus some tournament participation.  A moderate level of instruction, with an emphasis on developing the core techniques wrestlers use in competitive match situations. (3rd and 4th grades)

JV/FUTURE STARS

Accelerated instruction, with individual and team standings. Wrestlers get their first exposure to league competition. Focus remains on gaining skills as well as live-match experience, geared towards preparing for the varsity level. (5th through 8th grades)

VARSITY

Accelerated instruction with individual and team standings. At this level, competition becomes intense, and there is heavy emphasis on hard work and dedication. Wrestlers at this level aspire to be the best in their respective weight classes. (5th through 8th grades)
