Sunnyvale Youth Wrestling League (SYWL)
A partnership between Sunnyvale Elementary School District and Sunnyvale Wrestling Club.
General league info:
All 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students are able to participate in league practices. Only 4th and 5th grade wrestlers will be able to participate in Friday competitions. Waivers will also serve as sign up forms and need to be turned into the front office of your school. Practices start Monday October 2nd and the deadline to sign up is Friday September 29th. Each wrestler will receive a free t-shirt. Extra t-shirts will be sold only after the season for $10. Wrestlers should be picked up by parents and signed out after Friday off campus competitions. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions.
The downloadable files below have not yet been updated for the 2017 season. Please check back for forms in August of 2017.
To help us with data entry you can fill out the online sign up form by clicking the button directly below this text. You will still need to turn in a hard copy waiver. Thank you!

Sunnyvale Wrestling Club believes in offering extensive co-curricular programing for all students in elementary, intermediate and high school. The term "co-curricular," is used to describe the belief that school-related activities are not beyond the curriculum, but actually work in conjunction with the curriculum to build well-rounded individuals. It is further believed that student involvement in school-related activities create learning opportunities that foster skill development, team-building, commitment, responsibility, follow-through and character development.
The strength of Sunnyvale Wrestling Club's programs is dependent on participation. Strong co-curricular programing in Sunnyvale is dependent on all students being encouraged to become actively involved in at least one school-related activity each school year and programing being wrapped into the school system. Sunnyvale Wrestling Club's introduction of an elementary wrestling league that will include five Sunnyvale School District elementary schools is the beginning of this programing, and possibly will serve as a model. This will hopefully open the door for Sunnyvale School District to increase opportunities to students through an extensive co-curricular program, that would have the potential to increase and include a wide range of school-related activities to encourage student participation, such as:
Visual and Performing Arts: drama, oral interpretation, art, speech, debate, forensics, choral, music, band, orchestra, dance and poster contests.
Athletics: baseball, football, track, softball, swimming, diving, water polo, soccer, volleyball, basketball, cross country, tennis, wrestling, gymnastics and golf.
Curricular: Odyssey of the Mind, History Day, Science Fair, Spelling Bee, Mock Trial, Mathematics, Engineering and Science Association (MESA), Future Farmers of America (FFA), yearbook, journalism, Academic Decathlon and essay contests.
This is what our local, non - profit, all volunteer, wrestling club wants for our community. We see this elementary school league as more than just wrestling but the beginning of free, after school, co-curricular programing for our entire city.
