Chatham Wrestling Tournament Selected as a Qualifier For National Tournament

Tournament typically features 500 wrestlers.

The Chatham Wrestling Club is about to start the 2012-2013 season with the excitement of hosting it's eighth annual Holiday Novice Tournament and second annual Open Tournament. These tournaments, held on the same day at Chatham High School, typically feature 500 wrestlers from all over New Jersey as well as from New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Based on the success of past tournaments, the Chatham Tournaments have been selected as a qualifier for the Ohio Tournament of Champions which is the largest one day tournament in the world and is America's only national modified wrestling championships. In order to wrestle in the Ohio Tournament of Champions, a wrestler must first place in the top three of any qualifying tournament.  The fact that Chatham was selected to act as a qualifier for the Ohio Tournament Of Champions speaks volumes for the wrestling program in Chatham and the tournaments hosted by the Chatham Wrestling Club. This will no doubt bring national attention to wrestling in Chatham. The Chatham Wrestling Club consists of Chatham High School and the youth program. The youth program consists of clinic (first and second year wrestlers coached by Justin Perinotti), junior varsity and varsity (more experienced wrestlers coached by John Nonnenmacher, Scot Ciccarelli and Jeff Fricke). The Club is run by President John Nonnenmacher and Vice President Scot Ciccarelli and is open to boys and girls from kindergarten to 12th grade. Anyone interested in joining this club should contact John Nonnenmacher at jnonnenmacher@bynlaw.com or Scot Ciccarelli at  scot.ciccarelli@brcm.com
