Learning the Sport

Fond du Lac Wrestling Club

The Fond du Lac High School Wrestling team was established in 1976 and is the accumulation of many feeder programs in the district. Our wrestling club sponsors the Youth wrestling groups, the Cardinal Kids and the Junior Cardinals. The high school is fed by three area middle schools. 

Our program is defined by its long history of conference, regional, sectional, and state champions. We are proud of our student athletes for the hard work and commitment it takes to maintain a high level of excellence. Wrestlers who complete this program are honorable and respected members of our community and society.

We encourage wrestlers in grades 3-12 and coaches to purchase USA Wrestling memberships at the beginning of the season. There are many benefits to having this card for the athlete, including secondary sports accident insurance. If interested in purchasing a card click here, or talk to a coach if you have more questions.
