Middle School Wrestling

CCS Middle School athletic programs offer both varsity and junior varsity levels for most athletic programs. Teams are determined by tryouts that evaluate our young players on physical ability, fundamental skills, game understanding and comprehension, attitude, effort, and much more. Our JV teams are designed to develop young athletes with a commitment to growing fundamentals and skill sets, game understanding, and work ethic. The Varsity teams are designed to prepare athletes for the High School level with an advanced approach to developing fundamentals and game understanding.
