REGISTRATION FOR THE 2023-24 WRESTLING SEASON IS NOW CLOSED!
The Antioch Predators are excited to announce registration is open for the 2023-2024 IKWF wrestling season! Registration for the entire season will cost $225 ($125 for additional siblings). This covers the cost of practice 3 days a week from November until March and includes a USA Wrestling card (a $55 value!), a team t-shirt, dinner and an award at our end of the season banquet. Junior Predators (Tot and Bantams born 2015 and later) will practice 2 days a week and registration will be discounted to $175. Team gear (singlet and warm-ups) will be available at an additional cost.
