The primary goal of the Ankeny Wrestling Club is to encourage participation in the sport of wrestling, keep the kids excited and interested in the sport as well as provide the proper technique and training to allow each kid to reach their fullest potential as a wrestler.

Many of state qualifiers/place winners/champions produced by the Ankeny High School and Ankeny Centennial High School Wrestling programs began their career through the Ankeny Wrestling Club. We are an AAU sanctioned club and our members participate in both AAU and USA sanctioned events.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign my wrestler up for tournaments?

The best way to find a listing of the local and surrounding tournaments online at: www.thepredicament.com. New tournaments are added weekly throughout the season. Registration is handled differently by each individual tournament. Registration information should be available via the posting on www.thepredicament.com Some tournaments require mail in the registration, while others have online registration via www.trackwrestling.com.

Can I join AWC if I live outside Ankeny?

Ankeny Wrestling Club serves Ankeny residents, and Ankeny Community School District students and employees.

Does my wrestler need a singlet?

No. Most local tournaments do not require singlets. Club singlets will be available for purchase at the beginning of the season if you desire. Also, gently used equipment will be available at the parent meeting for purchase.

Why does my wrestler need to bath immediately after every practice?

Even though we clean the mats after every practice, there is always potential for bacteria to transfer to your child’s skin during practice.  Bathing immediately after every practice, will help limit your child susceptibility for any type of skin disease.

What are "Beginner" Tournaments?

Each Beginner tournament will have their own specific qualifications. The AWC Helmkamp Beginner Tournament requests wrestlers to have no more than 10 matches in their lifetime. Please be sure to read each tournament criteria prior to registering your child.
