Our Mission

The PAL Wrestling Program is open to K through 8th graders.
Our focus at the Westfield PAL Wrestling is to provide a safe environment for youth athletes in Westfield, the opportunity to learn wrestling from a knowledgeable and caring coaching staff.  We are committed to providing excellent instruction to our wrestlers by training them to be competitive and teaching sportsmanship, discipline, and teamwork, while also encouraging them to enjoy learning wrestling while having fun.


The PAL will be sponsoring 3 (K-6) dual meet teams for this upcoming season. We will maintain the current Central Jersey YWL (Varsity and JV) while adding a Mid Jersey Varsity team. We are excited to provide more competitive matches as our overall participation has increased the past few years. 


The “rec” program is for the 1st and 2nd year wrestlers in grades K-3. Wrestlers are taught the basics of the sport with an emphasis on having fun, developing basic skills and athleticism.  

The REC program serves as the feeder program to our Travel Teams.


The travel team programs provide mid-level to advanced technique and training with the practices starting the week of November 13th. This program is for all wrestlers (new and returning) in 4th-6th grade.  The team may also be suitable for select 2nd and 3rd graders who have demonstrated considerable progress at the Recreational Team level and who display the maturity to participate in structured practices and competitive match situations. 2nd and 3rd graders who feel they may be eligible for the travel program must consult with the coaching staff prior to registering.   


The Westfield Middle School Team practices after school Monday through Friday starting in late November.  New or less experienced 6th graders as well as 7th and 8th graders participate on the Westfield Middle School Team. 

The Northern NJ travel team is the most competitive league the PAL participates in. The league is a combination of the PAL and Middle School wrestlers.
