FUNDRAISER INFO BELOW

Franklin Wrestling Fundraisers 

Why is fundraising important?  In order to become a nationally recognized program funds are a top priority to allow athletes to compete at a national level.  Funds are needed for program growth.  Our program offers items such as camps, clinics, Fun days (Bring a Friend Nite), Meal pitch ins, overnight hotel stays and so much more.  These are just a few items to develop grass root development from our youth all the way through high school. Providing excellent coaching staff and clinicians throughout the season will bring the wrestling program in Franklin to a nationally recognized program to be proud of. These are just a few of Franklin Wrestling Fundraisers.
