Welcome to the SYWO!

Southern Youth Wrestling Organization (SYWO)
Mission Statement

The primary purpose of the SYWO is to create a unified wrestling organization that is dedicated to enhancing the sport of youth wrestling and to providing a quality program for the youth K through 8th grade.

The SYWO will provide quality run tournaments with innovative formats that ensure "mat time" for all wrestlers.

The SYWO assists organization members in developing quality and competitive programs through the sharing of ideas and resources.

The SYWO follows the Alabama High School Athletic Association's (AHSAA) rules for wrestling, with modifications for safety.

The SYWO respects and values our youth wrestlers; they are the reason our organization exists.

The SYWO seeks to build good working relationships within the organization based on mutual respect.

The SYWO values strong competition and believes that competing is more important than the final outcome.

The SYWO will continually challenge the status quo in pursuit of better ways of doing things.

Learn and improve from our mistakes,
Lead by example, and
Believe in simplification.
