Wrestling is Back at Buchser!

Buchser's Wrestling Team

Buchser’s wrestling team is back! All grade levels are encouraged to come join our team.  No matter how big or small you are, there is a spot for you on the team. Wrestling is a sport where athletes compete against athletes in the same weight class. Buchser’s wrestling team has joined the West Valley Athletic League (WVAL).  The WVAL is composed of teams from Santa Clara, Campbell, Los Gatos, and San Jose.  The WVAL does its best to make this sport fun and enjoyable for all athletes. Wrestling teaches athletes discipline, respect, honesty, dedication, and much more. The WVAL tries to make wrestling safe for all abilities in our sport. However, wrestling can be rough and just like in any sport injury can occur.


The team:


19 weight classes (70lbs-HWT 205-237)

19  Varsity spots

19  Jr. Varsity spots


*If you do not make a varsity or JV spot, I encourage everyone to remain on the team for experience (especially if you are a 6th or 7th grader). Everyone makes the team and is able to practice. We try to get everyone outside matches but that is not guaranteed.
