In an effort to continue to build and increase the exposure to the sport of wrestling in our community, the Elkhorn Athletic Association and the Elkhorn Wrestling Club will be merging. Both organizations have shared missions of providing a foundation for all members to increase character development, athletic conditioning and skills that translate into multiple sports.
Because wrestling is uniquely difficult, it also produces valuable personal attributes such as increased work ethic, humility, respect and discipline. In order to provide a consistent winter and summer schedule for this sport, the merger includes plans for a permanent home for the wrestling club along with a continued partnership with the Elkhorn Public Schools.
Our organizations believe the merger of these two local youth sports organizations will significantly enhance our ability to be competitive at the high school level in wrestling and to provide the best opportunity for young athletes to learn, compete and most importantly, have fun.
