We have now opened registration for the 2022 – 2023 wrestling season.
The cost of season will be $150 for one wrestler (does not include the USAW fee). For families with more than one wrestler, the additional cost will be $50 per wrestler (does not include the USAW fee). For more than 3 wrestlers in a family, please email me for details. All wrestlers will receive a shirt/short combination.
Steps to register:
- Set-up or login to USA Wrestling (link on our site). You will need to have registered your wrestler(s) at USAW prior to starting registration. Please copy your wrestler’s USAW ID – it will be required to register. Additionally, make certain you associate your wrestler(s) with the Maine Eagles WC within the USAW portal. A USA wrestling card ($55) is mandatory. Wrestlers will not be allowed to practice without one. Please note - that once a card has been purchased through USAW, the fee is not refundable from Maine Eagles WC.
- Parents will need to set-up or log into the Sports Engine account to begin the registration process. There will be convenience fees charged for using a credit card
- There is an option to pay by check at the end of registration. If you choose this option, fees are due the first week of the season
- If your wrestler is new to wrestling, a birth certificate is required. Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or hand deliver the birth certificate during the first week of practice
Fees should never be a roadblock to wrestling. If there is any kind of assistance necessary, please let us know.
New for this year:
- The club will not purchase new competition singlets going forward. There are a couple of reasons we decided to go this route.I am happy to discuss the details privately. The club will subsidize your purchase of new singlets (normal cost $90). This option is mostly for those that plan to compete regularly (see below for details) in our tournaments. We will have singlets available if you decide not to purchase a singlet
- We have partnered with Rudis for new singlets and extra gear – there is no requirement to purchase anything from the store
- The Rudis store will be open on until October 23rd – this date will *not* be extended. Information for the Rudis store may be found here: https://teamgear.rudis.com/t/maine-eagles-team-store-fall-2022/?team_id=206012&set_team_auth=1
Details on the season:
- All practices will be held at Maine South HS. There are two wrestling rooms at Maine South which allows us to hold practices concurrently. For more experienced/elite wrestlers, there will be separate practices this year

Wrestlers are encouraged to attend 2-3 practices per week. We may modify practice times and schedules should it be necessary.
