North Baltimore Wrestling ClubInc. A 501 C-3 organization
2017-18 advanced/intermediate schedule
The difference between advanced and intermediate wrestlers is a question of degrees - it is hard to give a concrete definition for each category. In general, advanced wrestlers have 3 or more years of experience, and have wrestled in a wide range of events. If you are uncertain whether an event is suitable for your level of experience, consult your coach at practice or email Andy Spawn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
