What is OWA?
OWA is a wrestling academy that is open year round to help all Oklahoma wrestlers from youth through High School. OWA is not a team, this facility is for all Oklahoma wrestlers that are members and that want to take their skills to the next level.

Benefits for High School coaches
OWA wants to give the high school coaches a peace of mind to know that their wrestlers are putting in that extra work that will help them get to that next level.
