Our season ends at the Kansas State Folkstyle Championships on March 23rd and 24th. If your child wants to wrestle in the Spring, he or she can participate in Freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling through the Shawnee Mission Regional Training Center. Along with Folkstyle (the style we participate in at KCWC), Freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling are the main styles of wrestling. See the links below for more information about these different wrestling styles. Participating in Freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling in the Spring is like playing futsal during offseason for soccer or 7-on-7 offseason in football. It is an opportunity to improve specific skills in the offseason while competing in a more relaxed environment.
There will be Freestyle (FS) and Greco-Roman (GR) practices this Spring at Shawnee Mission West on Tuesday nights. It is FREE to attend the practices. The start date and the exact times for those practices will be announced soon. Shawnee Mission West is designated as a Regional Training Center (RTC) for FS & GR. Follow SMSD FS/GR RTC on Twitter for more information. There are also tournaments that you can participate in through FS and GR.
KCWC does not run the FS/GR program, but our members are encouraged to participate.
