Volunteer Program

The Gladiators Wrestling Club has a volunteer program that requires each family to complete 4 hours of volunteer time during the St. Francis Folkstyle tournament on TBD (normally December). During registration you will have an option to choose to complete the volunteer hours or not. If you choose not to, you will be charged a fee of $100. If you opt to volunteer but your 4 hours of volunteer time is not completed by the end of the folkstyle season your account will be charged $100 on March 25, 2023. If your family fulfills the volunteer requirement you will not be charged. 


Family Discount

If you are registering more than one wrestler in your family this season, you will receive a $10 discount per additional wrestler.  In order for this registration system to recognize that your family is registering multiple wrestlers, please register all of your wrestlers at once. On the Review Page there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Player" - please click on this link to ensure that all of the athletes in your family are registered within the same order.

Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of your family discount. 

By successfully registering your wrestler to participate in the the Gladiator Youth Wrestling program you acknowledge that you as a parent(s) or guardian and your wrestler have read and agree to uphold the parent and wrestler code of conducts.
