The Portland Youth Wrestling (PYW) Sharks is an instructional and competitive team for youths in grades K-8 from all around Greater Portland. We focus on teaching important life lessons through the sport and building a foundation of wrestling fundamentals that will serve the athletes well in every level of competition.

Our teaching and competitive environment is suitable for beginners and experienced wrestlers alike. Some athletes choose to practice and not compete. However, many team members chose to compete in optional dual meets and/or weekend tournaments.

One of the great aspects of wresting is the use of weight classes. It allows kids of all sizes to compete with others on a safer, more equal playing field. In youth wrestling, athletes are also paired by age and experience level further leveling the competition. Wrestling demands a level of commitment, focus and discipline that’s unlike many other sports. Kids that embrace it can find success in wrestling and in life.
