Learning Life Lessons Thru Wrestling
Meet Our Board
Our program, proudly a part of the community since 1964, consists of youth anywhere from 5 years of age through college level wrestlers. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to serving our youth in the Council Bluffs area and surrounding communities.
Because we are a non-profit organization, the help we receive each year comes in the form of volunteers and sponsors. In order to keep the Panther tradition going, we rely upon the coaches and parents to get involved and help throughout the year. Whether you're a seasoned parent or just a beginner, there's something everyone can do to help. We may ask for your help in cleaning the Power Plant, donating supplies, or helping in some way with our annual tournaments. We take pride in our club and want the kids to be proud to be a part of the organization.
Our goal with this site is to hopefully keep members posted on the various events and tournaments being offered. If you ever have a recommendation or would like to see something added, please don't hesitate to contact one of the coaches or board members. We realize that without the children, parents, and volunteers, we wouldn't have a program so we welcome and thank each one of you for being a part of the club!
