The Patriot Wrestling Club (PWC) is committed to a vision that has at its core increased athletic opportunity for students ages 5-18. We hope to provide a spawning ground for local Junior High and High School wrestling teams. Teams that draw students and help them prepare for life and to choose an institution of higher education for their continued academic excellence.

The PWC/Idaho Express was founded with the student athlete in mind. We are composed of volunteers committed to helping our young people accomplish their goals and dreams, and to reach for excellence in everything they do. Through athletic endeavor, club leadership responsibilities and community involvement, we hope to help our wrestler’s prepare to meet a competitive world head on. Our hope is that they will have been equipped through their academic involvement and athletic success to take on what life presents as their competition to the mat, score and emerge champions.
