Golden Gate Wrestling Club is open to anyone over the age of 5 with an interest in FreeStyle, GRECO, Scholastic, and Grappling. This includes men and women at all skill levels. Height, weight, gender, race, age, disability, and intelligence can be mixed in any proportion to produce good wrestlers — and good coaches!

Beginners are encouraged to join, and you are welcome to come just to watch. Workouts are friendly and physical, grouped by size and skill level for safety.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

High school wrestlers in San Francisco may join GGWC's Alliance Wrestling program to learn freestyle skills to enhance their Scholastic folkstyle wrestling.
