Panthers on the Prowl!!!




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.  

For 2023, open mats will begin on Tuesday, October 4th, 2023 from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM in the O'Fallon Township High School wrestling room. Open mats will continue every Tuesday and Thursday night from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM until the season starts in November. Open mats are free and designed for new wrestlers to come try out the sport and receive some basic instruction and exposure, as well as experienced wrestlers to come work on their skills and prepare for the season. Once the season begins in November, practices will be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM at various locations in OTHS. See the practice schedule here:

**Registration for wrestling must be done in-person at one of the open mats or practices. NO ONLINE REGISTRATION will be available due to the requirement to sign up for multiple wrestling organizations in order to participate (OLP, IKWF, USA Wrestling, etc...)**

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