Each year, all LYWA wrestlers are required to participate in the main club fundraiser, the Takedown-a-thon. Wrestlers are encouraged to connect with family members, neighbors, and friends, share what they are raising money for, and ask for donations.
Donation packets with more information are sent home with wrestlers. Gear is awarded to wrestlers who reach designated fundraising levels.
At the conclusion of the Takedown-a-thon time-frame, we spend one practice honoring supporters and celebrating the wrestlers' hard work by having each athlete complete 100 takedowns.
LYWA sponsors tournaments throughout the year. These are a key source of funds for our club. Parents are required to volunteer to help at mats, in concessions, at admissions, etc. More information is provided during the season.
