No Training over the Easter Long Weekend

There will be no training at the AIS on Good Friday or Easter Monday.  Enjoy your break and see you back on Friday 21st April!

ACT Wrestling Camp at the AIS 7-9 April

The recent ACT Wrestling training camp at the AIS went very well with almost thirty wrestlers from four states.  Everyone put in an excellent effort and visibly improved over the three days.  We would like to thank all participants and look forward to hosting Canberra Cup competition and camp later in the year.

ACT Wrestling Special General Meeting at 7:30pm Friday 21 April at the AIS Wrestling Area

We must adopt a new constitution.  This is formal notice of a special general meeting for that purpose.

Australian National Wrestling Championships 6-7 May 2017

2017 Nationals Championships details and entry forms

NSW has been given approval to host the 2017 National Wrestling Championships which will be held at Campbelltown PCYC club, 95 Minto Road Minto, on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th May 2017.

This competition is an OPEN competition (ie Australian Citizenship is NOT required) for Cadets, Juniors, Seniors and Veterans; Male and Female; Freestyle and Greco Roman.

As per criteria sent out by WAI recently, the 2017 Nationals is a pre-requisite competition for selection in the 2018 Commonwealth Games team, subject to other criteria set out in that document.

Please invite your members and wrestlers to enter the competition.

It would be preferred that wrestlers from each state submit their entries to their respective state association and that association then forward to me as a bulk entry; but we are happy for wrestlers to register on-line at www.nsw.wrestling.com.au where they can make payment with their credit card (via Paypal).

All competitors must be members of a state wrestling association (and therefore members of WAI) or another national body acceptable to WAI.  Wrestlers registering for the event through their state body should be confirmed as a member by their state President/Secretary; competitiors registering on-line will be required to nominate their state body and details will be checked before the weigh-in.

Please note that entries are required by Midnight 30th April 2017 and a late fee applies to entries received after that time. It is important that entries are received on time to allow set up of “Arena” match competition softwear before the event so that the events can start on-time.

By all accounts it was a fun day and the ACT kids wrestled well.  Leila Lovrinovic won silver for girls 29kg.  Her brother, Oliver Lovrinovic came home with a silver medal for boys 35kg.  Angus Bowman won gold at 50kg (first match ever!).  Chris Baker won bronze at 69kg and although Caleb Dallacosta had no opponents, he enjoyed an exhibition match.  More photos of this event can be seen in our gallery.
