Hornets Wrestling "History":
The Germantown Hornets Youth Club was established in 2006 by former Germantown Head Coach Guy Powell. It is the foundation of Germantown Wrestling and an opportunity for other communities that do not have a youth program of their own. The club consists of grades K-12 and teaches all 3 styles of wrestling (Folkstyle, Freestyle, and Greco-Roman) depending on the time of year.
Prior to the Germantown Hornets Youth Program, Germantown had the Germantown Youth Club that was run by former Germantown Wrestling Assistant Jeff Smith and Head Coach Barry Bernstein - the club primarily focused on folkstyle wrestling for the youth.
Germantown wrestling has a strong tradition of success due to the commitment of the youth coaches and the families that support wrestling in the community. The Germantown Wrestling Program would like to thank all parties involved in making and continuing to make the Germantown Hornets Youth Wrestling Club successful.
