Husky Wrestling Club opened in Sept 2021. Our mission is to introduce and grow youth wrestling in our community and to support the growth of the HTMS, HTHS and surrounding wrestling programs. We are working in coordination with our local middle school and high school to develop the skills young athletes will need to one day support our school programs. We offer year around wrestling here in Trussville in Folkstyle, Freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling. We are currently kicking off our Youth Wrestling Season with the Alabama Youth Wrestling Organization. This season runs in sync with the Folkstyle season at HTHS and HTMS starting this week and running through the beginning of February. Youth Wrestling is open to boys and girls K-6th (7th and 8th may participate if they are not participating in an AHSAA sanctioned program). Kicking off this youth season are coaches Jackson Araneta and David Barden. Jackson wrestled under HTHS coach Chris Pike during his time at Thompson and went on to wrestle one year in college. Jackson is now a full-time student working on his degree in education. Coach David Barden is a full-time teacher at HTHS. Coach Barden wrestled at UT Chattanooga and also coached at Trussville as well as several programs in Ohio.
