We are using Barbarian Apparel again this year for our singlets. We’ll wear the Maroon singlet again as our primary OYWA/All-star uniform, all Maroon & Gold team members should have this one. Check to see if yours still fits from last season or follow the link to purchase a new one.

We also have an alternate White Tournament singlet that is available for all team members to purchase and can be worn when we attend off weekend tournaments or if you are competing on your own away from the OYWA season.

The team store closes October 22nd so make sure you get your order in. These will not be available after that date.



OYWA matches are every other Sunday in December and January at North Olmsted High School. We will compete in other tournaments and matches during the “off” weeks.

Gold team wrestles in the OYWA morning sessions. The top wrestler in each weight class will wrestle in dual matches and others will wrestle exhibitions. We also plan to compete in other select duals, and individual tournaments throughout the season including OAC tournaments.

Maroon team wrestles in the OYWA “All-Star” sessions Sundays starting at noon. Additionally, we plan to compete in a few novice tournaments. Competition is always optional for novice wrestlers.
