Welcome to the Council Rock Wrestling Association (CRWA), a member of the ICWL and host of the Indian Open Wrestling Tournament.
CRWA provides training and competition opportunities for approximately 200 wrestlers and Cheerleaders. CRWA places kindergarten through 8th grade wrestlers on 8 different Council Rock teams, with the primary goal of preparing wrestlers to eventually compete for the Council Rock North and Council Rock South high school varsity teams. The CRWA family has a remarkable 50 year history and is extremely proud of the success its wrestlers have achieved in youth wrestling, high school, and beyond. We look forward to this year’s team members someday becoming the core team members for both Coach Silimperi’s and Coach Vivacqua’s high school teams of the future.
Below you can find information on Registration, Schedules, and other news. Please use the website as your primary source for information, as opposed to e-mailing or calling CRWA coaches and/or Board members. A late registration fee of $25 per wrestler applies after 12/15/13.
Coach Mike Rappo will lead our practices and oversee the training program for all CRWA teams and wrestlers. Coach Rappo will be assisted by other coaches that also have significant background and experience in wrestling.
