Welcome to the website for
Buffalo Valley Youth Association Wrestling.
BVYA Wrestling is a wrestling club chartered by USA Wrestling and associated with the Buffalo Valley Youth Association. Our club welcomes the membership of boys and girls aging from 4 to 15 years. We are dedicated to the development of athletes and coaches of all ages.
We are excited to witness the explosive growth of Youth wrestling in Texas. The BVYA Wrestling club participates in tournaments sanctioned by Texas USA Wrestling as a member of Central Region. BVYA Wrestling obtained our charter in November of 2010. We are also proud to support the future growth of the Wrestle SC (Steele and Clemens) High School Wrestling Club by helping to develop athletes who will grow to participate and excel in high school wrestling.
For this 2015-2016 season, we have moved once again to a new practice location. The new location is the cafeteria of the Allison L. Steele Enhanced Learning Center Cafeteria (where the High School wrestlers practice this year as well.)
Practices have begun.
Come to practice and register.

Come when you can. Leave when you must.
There is no requirement for participation in any certain number of practices. We will have the doors open four nights a week and have coaching available. Parents decide what is right for their family as far as practice participation is concerned. However, please be advised that perfect practice makes perfect. Get as much practice for your athlete as you can. Regardless and nevertheless, BVYA Wrestling policy is that parents (not coaches) decide whether their athlete is ready to compete and it is needed to for them to advise coaches of their intentions for their athletes weekly.
We typically hold registration open until the Thursday before the Christmas break.
Come give us a try and see if your athlete will like it. Chances are they will!
