The PAL Wrestling Program is open to K through 8th graders.

Our focus at the Westfield PAL Wrestling is to provide a safe environment for youth athletes in Westfield, the opportunity to learn wrestling from a knowledgeable and caring coaching staff.  We are committed to providing excellent instruction to our wrestlers by training them to be competitive and teaching sportsmanship, discipline, and teamwork, while also encouraging them to enjoy learning wrestling while having fun.

About Us

Westfield PAL Wrestling  Season 2023-2024 

REGISTRATION for the recreation and travel winter season will open September 22nd:

Travel Season begins week of 11/13

Mandatory Travel Parent Meeting Thursday 11/2 - 7:30 pm (Edison Middle School Cafeteria)
Mandatory Recreation Parent Meeting - Monday 11/14 7:30 pm (Edison Middle School Cafeteria)


The "rec" program is for the 1st and 2nd year wrestlers in grades K-3. Wrestlers are taught the basics of the sport with an emphasis on having fun, developing basic skills and athleticism.  

Practices will be held on:
Wednesday starting 11/30 from 5:30-6:45 pm
Saturday starting 12/1 (December practices will be 11:30-12:45 - Jan/Feb will have an earlier start time 9:00-10:15 am)

The season will consist of various "King of the Mat" and instructional novice matches with neighboring towns ending in mid-February 2023. Registration cost is $230 and includes uniforms (1/4 zip, shorts, t-shirt) and singlets will be provided for the season.  Wrestler must provide headgear and wrestling shoes.

The REC program serves as the feeder program to our Travel Teams.

The travel team programs provide mid-level to advanced technique and training with the practices starting the week of November 13th. This program is for all wrestlers (new and returning) in 4th-6th grade.  The team may also be suitable for select 2nd and 3rd graders who have demonstrated considerable progress at the Recreational Team level and who display the maturity to participate in structured practices and competitive match situations. 2nd and 3rd graders who feel they may be eligible for the travel program must consult with the coaching staff prior to registering.   

Wrestlers will be split into two practice groups - once we have our final registration numbers we will split the groups by experience, maturity and age. 

Group 1 "Varsity" - Practices Tuesday and Thursday - 6:00-7:30 pm
Group 2 "JV" - Practices Monday and Wednesday - 6:00-7:30

There will be select nights when both groups will practice together during the season. 

The PAL will be sponsoring 3 (K-6) dual meet teams for this upcoming season. We will maintain the current Central Jersey YWL (Varsity and JV) while adding a Mid Jersey Varsity team. We are excited to provide more competitive matches as our overall participation has increased the past few years. 

Registration cost is $295 and includes uniform (1/4 zip, joggers and t-shirt) - singlets will be provided for the season. Wrestler must provide headgear and wrestling shoes. 

The Westfield Middle School Team practices after school Monday through Friday starting in late November.  New or less experienced 6th graders as well as 7th and 8th graders participate on the Westfield Middle School Team. 

PAL Registration cost is $140 and includes uniforms. The preference is for Middle School wrestlers to sign up via the PAL site to ensure they have uniforms in time for the season and be added to the PAL communication lists. Middle School wrestlers also need to sign up through the Board of Education Athletics for the team.

The Northern NJ travel team is the most competitive league the PAL participates in. The league is a combination of the PAL and Middle School wrestlers. Selection for this league is handled by Coach Wnuck and more info will be shared as we get closer to the season

Singlets will be provided.  Wrestler must provide headgear and wrestling shoes.


Registration for the winter 2023-2024 Westfield PAL Wrestling Season for REC and TRAVEL programs is now closed.

The Coaching Staff is looking forward to a GREAT SEASON!
