All Elmhurst Wrestling Club wrestlers are required to maintain membership with USAW, as required by the IKWF. All Elmhurst Wrestling Club coaches are required to be approved by the Head Coach, maintain membership with USAW, and be properly certified by USAW.
The Elmhurst Wrestling Club offers its members (youths K- 8th) training opportunities in folkstyle wrestling. Membership applications are available to residents of the surrounding Elmhurst area, and are reviewed for entry into the club on an annual basis by the EWC coaching staff.
