Ledyard Parks and Recreation has made their youth wrestling program open to all Groton residents, thanks to the community relationship between the Groton and Ledyard Parks and Recreation departments. Groton Parks and Recreation does not currently offer youth wrestling among its programs.
“Over the past couple of years we have had numerous kids from Groton participate in our program,” said Alan McGowan from Ledyard Youth Wrestling. “Judging by the number of wrestlers that return each year, I think it has been a rewarding experience for all participants.”
The program is open to boys and girls in grades 1 through 8. Practices are held Monday and Thursday from 5:30-7:00 pm beginning December 9. Practices are held at the Ledyard High School bomb shelter. There is a registration fee of $62.00 per child, registration begins September 3 on ledyardrec.org.
Interested participants may contact Alan McGowan at (860) 235-5598 for more information.
The Groton Parks and Recreation Department’s Mission is to provide quality leisure opportunities in a safe and healthy atmosphere and to enhance the quality of life of the community through the responsible management of fiscal and natural resources.
