About Me

Central Okanagan Wrestling Association

Practices are open to Grade 3 to 12 female and male wrestlers from the Central Okanagan area.  Wrestlers represent their school in school tournaments and their club in club tournaments.  Size does not matter in this sport because there are weight classes.  This is the only combative sport sanctioned by BC School Sports.  No one sits on the bench in this sport!

The Central Okanagan Wrestling Association (COWA) provides various local programs to promote the sport of Olympic wrestling. In our club’s role as a local non-profit society, we reaffirm our commitment to the community by promoting positive values in our athletes. These values include teamwork, commitment to a goal, hard work, striving for excellence, fair play, and respect for others. Free training of coaches, managers, on mat officials and drawmasters will be provided to interested volunteers. Additional volunteer opportunities exist on our Board, on various committees and in supportting  our annual tournaments.

The objectives of the society are:

1. To promote and develop the sport of amateur wrestling;

2. To maintain good sportsmanship, intergrity and fellowship;

3. To foster, facilitate and direct activities beneficial to elementary school, middle school and secondary school females and males.
