It was great to see the turnout at Registration night. There were many new kids, as well as kids that have been with us for years.
If you were unable to make it to the Registration night, there is another opportunity at our first practice on Tuesday January 6th.
If you'd like to fill out the form prior to then, click on the link below. You may then either mail the form to us or bring it by that first night of practice.
For those that are new to the program or wrestling in general, please check out the 'Parent Info' page on this website. It should answer most of your questions. However, if you still have a question, please feel free to email it to us.
The cost of the registration per child is $70 and that will include:
the use of the singlet, warm-up suit for the season
a team t-shirt for the child to keep
paid entrance fees to the BYW tournaments we attend

Berwick Maine, 03901
Head Coach and Coaching Staff
Louis Dubois will once again return as the Head Coach of BYW, this is Louis' 21st year and we are fortunate to have him! Louie's dedication and wrestling knowledge has made the BYW program one of the best youth programs around. We expect to have several other seasoned coaches returning but are looking for a few more people to get involved. If you are interested in helping coach, but don't have experience, we can arrange for a coaching clinic or class to teach the basics. Again, please drop us an email if you are willing to help coach.
2014 Awards Banquet & Celebration
What a fantastic turnout at the end of the season banquet! Bowling, Laser Tag AND an arcade. What more would a kid (or parent) want on a rainy weekend? There were more than 30 wrestlers there as well as siblings, cousins, parents, grandparents as well as coaches....one huge Berwick Youth Wrestling family!!
We hope all the kids enjoyed the day! It is always nice getting away from the tournament craziness and gather for something less stressful. Wrestling is a tough sport, mentally and physically, so the banquet is a celebration of all the kids hard work this season.
Coach Louie and the assistant coaches gave out participation gifts, BYW cinch sacks, to the kids and then handed out awards to some much deserving kids:
PreK-K 1st & 2nd grade
Sportsmanship Award- Joslyn Manning Sportsmanship Award - Nolan Lowery
Most Improved - Owen Eldredge Most Improved - Adam Dumont
Rookie of the Year- Jeremy Thibeault Rookie of the Year - Lieyl Anderson
3rd & 4th grade 5th & 6th grade
Sportsmanship Award- Logan Downs Sportsmanship Award - Tanner Huff
Most Improved - Aaron Pratt Most Improved - Matthew Beerworth
Rookie of the Year - Justin Buller Coaches Award - Logan Rendell
Parents deserve to celebrate and have at least six months off too! Without your involvement with the BYW program it wouldn't be nearly as sucessful. We appreciate all of the help at practices, (chairs, and mats) as well as rounding up kids at tournaments (the chaotic 'silent' tournaments). We extremely appreciate the effort from every single one of you the day of our State tournament. We could have not pulled it off without you....THANK YOU.
For those 6th graders which are moving on to the Middle School program, it has been great having you in BYW. Good students, good wrestlers and just plain great kids!! Feel free to stop by practice, the younger kids would love to see you.
Enjoy the rest of the school year and the summer break. We look forward to seeing you all next Fall.

2014 Marshwood New England Youth Classic Tournament
After another very long day of wrestling here are the results for Marshwood's New England Tournament. We had 23 wrestlers compete and they brought home 13 awards.
Great job to all who competed and special congratulations to the wrestlers who placed. [results]
Thank you again to the coaches for another long day of devotion to our kids! A great ending to a fantastic season.
I'm sure those of you at the Die Hard Tournament saw some shiny new singlets on some of our wrestlers. They are Maroon singlets with BERWICK done in black lettering and a white outline. Due to the high expense for these singlets we were only able to purchase 24 new singlets this year. The good news is that we've created a new plan going forward where will be budgeting a certain amount of our money to purchase uniforms (singlets and warm-up gear) each year. Prior to the start of the season we will review the condition of the uniforms and make purchases to improve Berwick Youth Wrestling. Please note that the best way to keep the singlets looking great is to wash in cool water and avoid the dryer, line dry only. This time of year they will air dry in a few hours and this will extend their life.
We have a few more singlets to hand out at practice on Tuesday. If you received a new singlet, it does have a number on it and we will be collecting them along with the first singlet, at our uniform collection night on April 8th.
