2017 Melbourne Wranglers’ Youth Program

The Melbourne Wranglers Wrestling Club is a diverse gender and sexuality (DGS) sporting club that was established in 2015. We’re one of two DGS wrestling clubs in Australia and one of about a dozen world-wide. We provide a safe space to enjoy the sport of wrestling regardless of gender or sexuality.

Our members join the Wranglers for a range of reasons, including health and fitness, learning about wrestling, competition and the social aspect of making new mates. For many of us, we knew close to nothing about wrestling before joining but now the club is like a second family. In fact, wrestling is for all shapes and sizes. You don’t need to have any experience wrestling, just a willingness to try something different.

We want you to experience the range of physical and mental health benefits that come from being part of our club, but we know that this can be tough financially when you’re young. So, in March, we’ll be launching the 2017 Melbourne Wranglers’ Youth Program with the help of grant funding kindly provided by the Yarra City Council. The aim of the program is to make the club more accessible for youth aged between 18 to 25.

Youth Beginners Workshop

There’s two parts to the Youth Program. The first is a free Youth Beginners Workshop to be held at the start of Youth Week on Friday 31 March 2017 in Abbotsford. This will be followed by three discounted general training sessions in April to let you learn about wrestling, get to know our members and see whether wrestling is for you.

Youth Program Memberships

The second stage involves participants being invited to apply for one of 15 Youth Program Memberships. The application period is from 1 – 30 April. Successful applicants will receive a heavily discounted annual membership and discounted weekly training for the rest of 2017.

Make sure to register for the Youth Beginners Workshop so you don’t miss out, places are limited!
