Apex WrestlingApex Wrestling School would like to congratulate all of our 2014-2015 Region Place Finishers and all of our NJ State Qualifiers. Since 2007, Apex Wrestling School has prided itself in providing college level technical instruction, match strategy, mental preparation and live wrestling to youth, middle school and high school wrestlers.

They have seen us grow from one location to multiple locations and helped us win many national place finishes as a dual team. To all of our wrestlers we say, relax, enjoy the moment and focus on one period at a time! And above all else, thank you all, for your many years of support and good luck!
