PTWC serves the entire town of Parsippany. They serve as feeder programs for the Parsippany middle and high school teams, and many of their youth wrestlers compete statewide.  The club is open to all Parsippany youths (boys and girls), grades kindergarten through the eighth grade.  PTWC is totally self-funded community organization, and rely on contributions and fund-raising to support their youth wrestling program. The Annual Holiday Tournament is PTWC’s largest annual fund raising event.

Ms. June Madia, an active club board member, past club president, and 13-year club volunteer stated, “Wrestling is one of the oldest sports known to man. In fact, it is thought to be on the original list of athletic events practiced at the ancient Olympic Games more than 2700 years ago. Wrestling compliments all other competitive sports, and imparts self-discipline, perseverance, and respect to those who stick with it. More importantly, this sport keeps our kids on the straight and narrow, away from the undesirable temptation so many encounter today.  The monetary outlay for wrestling is quite low when you compare it to most other youth sports;  All you basically need are a pair of wrestling shoes and a headgear. Although wrestling may not be for every child, it’s certainly worth  trying at a young age.”
