Quest offers group coaching, open workout and private instruction to Elementary, Junior and Senior High School wrestlers.
The Quest School of Wrestling has produced many successful wrestlers; including Youth and Jr/High School, District, Region, State, AAU, and National Champions. Our facilities allow wrestlers to train all year round to maximize their potential. We believe, wrestling is a year long sport, where we start training for the next season, the day after the current season has finished. The sport of Wrestling is taken extremely seriously and passionately at Quest.

If you don’t like criticism, Quest is not for you. If you don’t like to train, Quest is not for you. If you don’t like change or to try new things, Quest is not for you. The Quest School of Wrestling is designed for the serious wrestler. The wrestler who wants to become a champion in life.

The goal of Quest is to provide young men with the best training needed to become dedicated, disciplined and competitive wrestlers, as well as model citizens. It is a goal of Quest to train young men to become, High School State Champions, National Champions, All-Americans, and Collegiate wrestlers. Quest has the opportunity to provide – skills, techniques, education, strength and a life-long experience for your child. It is our goal to provide state-of-the-art training and education to reach these goals.
