O'Fallon Little Panthers

"Once You've Wrestled

Everything Else in Life is Easy"


Welcome to the O'Fallon Little Panthers Wrestling Team website.  The O'Fallon Little Panthers is part of the Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation (IKWF) and feeds into the O'Fallon middle and high school programs.  We are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for kids ages 4 to 14 that want to learn the sport of wrestling.  We provide a learning atmosphere that is appropriate for all skill and experience levels ranging from the fundamentals and basic rules of the sport to the more advanced technique for those wrestlers ready to compete at the highest levels.  

Below are some of the more important accomplishments from the program over the years:
