What is OWA?
Oklahoma Wrestling Academy is Oklahoma’s only year round wrestling academy. OWA is a facility for ALL Oklahoma wrestlers from age 4 through college, that want to take their skills to the next level. OWA will not take anything from other youth wrestling clubs, Jr. High or High school programs. We believe that Iron Sharpens Iron and at any given time you will see multiple champions training together, from different programs & schools across the state. Think of OWA as the extra practice, drill session or that added benefit that all wrestlers need to get better and improve their skills. We offer multiple memberships to fit your needs, for more information click here: Memberships
