Wrestling Registration is OPEN!

Season starts week of November 11

Kindergarten - 8th grade

Registration is now open for PAL Wrestling for the 2019-20 season. The program is open to all Berkeley Heights and Mountainside residents from kindergarten through 8th grade. Practices will be 2-3 times per week at Governor Livingston and we will be competing in 4 different leagues of various skill levels, wrestlers who are ready to compete will be placed at a level commensurate with their ability.

Wrestling has been one of the fastest growing sports in the school district and the vast majority of Columbia and GL wrestlers came through the PAL program. 

For more information contact:


Note: Coach Ortega and Coach Jazz are strongly encouraging all 7th/8th graders to participate in PAL program to supplement their training and so they can participate in the North Jersey and Future Stars leagues as well as weekend tourneys (no additional fee for up to 3 tourneys)
