General Information

Welcome to the Northern Highlands Junior Wrestling Association (NHJWA). The aim and purpose of the NHJWA is to provide a fun and healthy atmosphere in which the youth of Upper Saddle River, Saddle River, Ho-Ho-Kus and Allendale can learn and participate in competitive wrestling. During this season, your child will learn a great deal about the sport of wrestling. As important, wrestling will also reinforce the invaluable lessons of self-discipline, good sportsmanship and respect.

Wrestling will improve your child’s coordination, endurance, and strength. He will learn how to maintain balance, how to set-up, execute, and finish moves. He will also learn techniques and strategies that will help him win 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. However, wrestling is a demanding sport. Commitment and discipline are the key components to becoming a champion.

We are very excited about the upcoming season and look forward to maintaining a winning tradition that our wrestling team has achieved over the years. Wrestlers eligibility The NHWA is for children grades K-8 who reside in Upper Saddle River, Ho Ho Kus and Allendale. Wrestlers will be grouped by age, weight and experience. Practices will be held in the Northern Highlands’ high school wrestling gym 2 days per week with matches and tournaments held on the weekend. *Wrestlers who are on the Cavallini or the Wandell school teams may also wrestle for the Northern Highlands Junior wrestling team.
