North Baltimore Wrestling ClubInc. A 501 C-3 organization
2016-17 advanced/intermediate schedule
The difference between an intermediate and an advanced wrestler is a question of degrees - there are not events that are specifically intended for
intermediate wrestlers - you just want to make sure that you don't overreach and attend a tournament where you are hopelessly overmatched. Consult the write up for each event for suggestions about which ones are better suited for our most experienced members. Remember, though, that it is sometimes good for intermediate wrestlers to try tougher events to check their progress, and to get a sense of what they need to work on.
Most events that we attend are structured to accommodate as many wrestlers as want to attend, even if they are in the same weight class. Dual meet events, however, require us to field a full squad of weight classes and to forfeit empty classes. Please be sure to check with your coach to be certain if we are counting on you to attend a particular event.
