Mission:

River City Wrestling is designed to promote the sport of wrestling. Wrestling is the world's oldest and greatest sport. The discipline, balance and skills that are taught through the sport of wrestling will strengthen your body, mind and soul.

Our goal is to provide our athletes with a safe, healthy and enjoyable environment in which to compete; without fear of abuse, either physical or verbal from anyone whether it be opponent, official, coach or spectator.

History:

Spring/ Freestyle Program:

The River City Wrestling Club Freestyle Program was established in 1995 by Jim Kraeszig to promote the sport of wrestling in the Louisville Metropolitan area. The Freestyle Club (now known as the Spring Program) is open to any athlete, K - 12th grade who wishes to start or improve their skills in the sport of wrestling. The River City Wrestling Club has grown to be one of the largest wrestling clubs in the state of Kentucky.

Fall/ Folkstyle Program:

In 2005 River City Wrestling expanded to offer a Folkstyle wrestling club to wrestlers from 2nd through 8th grades. In the first season of Folkstyle wrestling, River City had more than 30 wrestlers representing 14 area schools. The Folkstyle club has maintained an enrollment of 60+ wrestlers each year since its inception and has finished as high as 3rd at the Middle School State Championships, 2nd at the Middle School State Duals, 1st at the Middle School and Youth Regional Championships and 5th at the Youth State Championships. The program is proud to have multiple State Placers and State Champions at both the Middle School and Youth level.
