About the Club

Oconee Youth Wrestling is a youth wrestling club based in Oconee County, Georgia. Our mission is to build the character of young people through the sport of wrestling and to help them be the very best wrestler, teammate, and member of the community that they can be.  OYW has been the feeder program for OCHS & NOHS for over a decade providing these programs with wrestlers who have developed into team captains and state place winners. We work closely with local wrestling programs throughout the region to promote competitions and provide our wrestlers with opportunities to improve their wrestling skills.
