Dixon Wrestling Club

Where Champions Begin”

Mission Statement

Dixon Wrestling Club (DWC) is a self-supported program that is affiliated with the Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation (IKWF).  DWC is committed to providing a supportive and safe atmosphere for kids in elementary and middle school grade levels that want to learn the sport of wrestling.  Our goal is to teach basic fundamentals and rules of the sport in an environment appropriate for all skill levels and provide a great foundation for learning good sportsmanship, respect, work ethic, physical fitness and the team concept. 

 Core Values:

  • Safety is our top priority.  Wrestlers WILL BE EXPECTED to follow team rules under the direction of the coaches.  Disruption of practice will not be tolerated.
  • Our wrestlers are students first and athletes second.  DWC prepares elementary age students to wrestle at higher levels in middle and high school.  Hopefully become collegiate wrestlers.
  • Sportsmanship is expected from ALL wrestlers, coaches and parents. (Kids of all experience and skills WILL be part of the team
  • Though wrestling is primarily an individual sport, the team concept is an important priority with DWC.  Wrestlers should support their teammates during all competitions.
