We will host two preseason clinics on Tuesday, October 30th at Park Hill High School from 6-7pm in the wrestling room and on Sunday, November 4th at Oak Park High School in the wrestling room from 4-5pm.

The cost of the clinic is $10 and you will register onsite. Shorts or sweatpants and a shirt is all that is needed to participate.
There are also a couple of "Back to the Mat" B2M sessions still available where children can come check out a practice and the program before the season starts.

For the Level 1 (novice and intermediate) wrestlers the first practice will be on Monday, November 5th at Oak Park and the first Light Infantry (4-6 year olds) practice will be on Tuesday, November 6th at Oak Park. For those playing football this fall, if you are still in your season when we begin or if your athlete needs a short break afterwards then he/she will be able to jump into the regularly scheduled practices at anytime during the month of November.

We hope to see some more of the Pee Wee and youth wrestlers jump into this semester to get a head start on the upcoming season - even if it is just one night a week. All those practice hours multiple and add up quickly. The final training semester will be for 10 weeks at the cost of $150 - both cash or check are accepted. Wrestlers attending one night per week (Sundays), the cost is $75 for the semester. All checks should be made out to Greater Heights Wrestling please.

The Greater Heights wrestling program is a nationally respected and renowned wrestling club out of Kansas City, Missouri that has produced numerous youth and high school state champions, as well as national champions, placers and collegiate wrestlers. The youth program captured its 15th consecutive Missouri Youth State Team Title and just tied a state record the program set the previous year with thirty state medalists in a season.
The Greater Heights wrestling program is successful because it doesn't just teach wrestling moves but rather how to wrestle in all positions. In addition, the program teaches athletes discipline, respect, and the importance of making good choices as a student-athlete every age level. We also teach the importance of creating a family bond with teammates and community members, how to be a leader on and off the mat, and most importantly, we teach athletes to love and appreciate hard work so that they can be successful in life after their wrestling careers have ended.
If you are interested in your son or daughter reaching their full potential in wrestling, and in life, use the contact form below and make sure to read our News Section to keep updated on our development philosophies and team progress throughout the year.
Greatness is earned. Not given.
At Greater Heights we do our best to promote a team-oriented family atmosphere. From practices to tournaments to hang out nights, we truly believe in a family-centered philosophy.
One of our coaches filmed a tournament day from start to finish to show the world what these young wrestlers go through beyond just the few minutes that they battle on the mat. It's not just about winning for us. It's about creating life-long friendships between the kids (and also the parents). We've achieved success only because our support system is so strong. Winning is a byproduct of tough practices, caring coaches, supportive parents, and a family atmosphere.
Nothing great is ever accomplished alone.
