About Us

Welcome to Northern Highlands Junior Wrestling (NHJW). The aim and purpose of the NHJW is to provide a fun and exciting atmosphere in which the youth of Allendale, Ho-Ho-Kus, Saddle River, & Upper Saddle River can learn and participate in the great sport of wrestling.

During the season, your athlete will learn a great deal about the sport of wrestling. As a result of your child’s involvement with wrestling, coaches will also reinforce the invaluable lessons of self-discipline, mental and physical strength, good sportsmanship and respect.

They will learn how to maintain balance, how to set-up, execute, and finish moves and learn techniques and strategies that will help them compete in matches.

Our coaches are very dedicated to your child and the sport of wrestling. It is our belief that with proper training and a little desire, your child can become a champion wrestler and furthermore, successful in life.

However, wrestling is a demanding sport. Commitment and discipline are the key components to becoming a good wrestler. We expect exemplary behavior in practice and at matches.

We are very excited about the upcoming season and look forward to maintaining the winning tradition that our wrestling team has achieved over the years. The NHJW is for children grades K-8 who reside in Upper Saddle River, Ho Ho Kus, Saddle River and Allendale. Wrestlers will be grouped by age, weight and experience. Practices will be held in the Northern Highlands HS wrestling gym 2 days per week with matches and tournaments held on the weekends.

Any Questions please email Coach Gray mgwaves@aol.com and put NHJW in the subject line.
