The Huntley Jr. Red Raiders Competitive Wrestling Team is a member of the Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation (IKWF). We believe wrestling is about goal setting and achievement. We expect our wrestlers to exercise discipline in practice, to compete with intensity and sportsmanship, and to respect their coaches and teammates at all times! We use wrestling as a tool to prepare our athletes for future success in life. We will provide the necessary tools for the pursuit of individual and team goals, enriching each wrestler's growth as individuals. Allowing them to develop the skill, attitude, and enthusiasm needed while maintaining the competitive hard working philosophy that is required to compete in the world's oldest sport.
Our 2016-17 season will be held in our 5,000 sq. ft. wrestling facility at Old School Wrestling Training Center. Our dedicated training center and our top tier coaching staff create a wrestling environment that will ensure your wrestler has the best opportunity to succeed. Our tournament season begins in December and runs through the end of February (not including sectionals and state tournaments).
