While the high school wrestling season wrapped up at the state tournament earlier this month, the Kodiak Kid Wrestling program is in full swing. This Friday dozens of young athletes will take to the mat for a jamboree tournament in the gymnasium at Main Elementary.
The tournament is the second of three events the club wrestling program puts on. About two weeks ago they hosted a takedown tournament, and next month the final tournament will bring in young wrestlers from the villages to participate.
KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs recently stopped by a kid wrestling practice and learned more about the program that has been operating in Kodiak for more than three decades.

Friday’s tournament will kick off with the younger kids taking the mat at 6 p.m.and older kids will start matches around 7 p.m.
