Vestavia Wrestling Club

The Vestavia Wrestling Club (VWC) Youth Season is for grade school athletes seeking training and competition in the sport of wrestling.

November through February

Folkstyle wrestling is the focus of our Youth Season program. Folkstyle, also known as Collegiate Wrestling, is a style of wrestling that allows the athlete to use their legs or their opponent’s legs for offensive and defensive purposes. Like all forms of wrestling, folkstlye has weight classes to ensure a fair but competitive match.

Student athletes who enroll in this program will be introduced to basic and advanced techniques, positions, and philosophies that translate to success at the Middle School, High School and Collegiate level of wrestling. Coach James Nicholson, a 2x All-American from Old Dominion University, is dedicated to the success of each individual wrestler and will work with them to achieve their full potential.
