Welcome to the Bridgewater Township Recreation Wrestling Team's Web Site.  Our program brings together Kindergarten through 8th grade boys from the Bridgewater and Raritan communities for an instructional and competitive program where basic wrestling skills are taught and practiced in a supervised setting under the guidance of experienced coaches.   Our goal is to help boys develop confidence, self-reliance, discipline, and respect, while stressing the importance of good sportsmanship and teamwork.  Many of our former participants now wrestle on the Bridgewater-Raritan High School Wrestling Team and have found our program to be an invaluable experience to ensuring success on the high school level. Wrestlers join our program to have fun.  Our coaching staff recognizes this and often incorporates "games with a purpose" into each practice so that time spent is adequately balanced between work and play.  New friendships are formed and are continued on throughout their wrestling years both on and off the mat. 1st through 8th Grade participants in our program may compete on one of three different levels of competition -- (1) the highly competitive Grade School League for 7th & 8th grade wrestlers, (2) the Central Jersey Midget Wrestling League for our more experienced wrestlers in grades 1-6, and (3) the Raritan Valley Midget Wrestling League for our developing wrestlers.  Our in-season program runs from November to March.  Practices are conducted at Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School, with two to three practices per week.
