Frequently Asked Questions
01 How old does my son/daughter need to be to wrestle?
We have classes for ages 3 and up. Our Tots 'N Training (TNT) class is for beginners ages 3 - 6. Our Youth Wrestling Team is for boys/girls ages 5 y.o. and up.
02 Can we come try it out?
Absolutely! In fact, we recommend and believe you should try it out, that is why we have a 3 Free Practices policy for all new visitors. You can come to 3 practices to see if your child likes it and to see if you like our style of coaching.
03 How much is it to take a class or to join the team?
We have a number of ways to be a part of the Tuscaloosa Takedown family. You can attend by the session for $15 or you can save money with our packages that range from $85 / month and up. The bigger the package, the larger the savings / session.
04 Can my daughter wrestle?
Definitely! In fact, we have special practice sessions available just for the girls. Many of our girls practice with the team, but some specifically prefer to practice with other girls.
05 Do we have to compete in tournaments?
No. The tournaments are very intense and require mental toughness that many times needs to be developed before testing ourselves in the tournaments. Our coaches will make recommendations for when we think the kids are ready for the tournaments but the parents have the ultimate say on when and whether their children are ready for tournament play.
