Since 1972, the Belleville Little Devils organization has been providing opportunities for thousands of youth to participate in the sport of wrestling. With multiple Individual State Champions, state medalists, and outstanding teams, the tradition of this program stands alone in the community.
The wrestling program provides opportunities for youth from the ages of 5-14 to learn the fundamentals of wrestling, but also other outstanding life skills such as hard work, commitment, team-work, discipline and sportsmanship.
The program offers opportunities to compete locally and state-wide against youth of similar ages and weights. With a room full of past Little Devils and other volunteers, the instruction is taught by certified coaches who have been through a background check, and trained through an extensive certification course sponsored by USA Wrestling and the Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation. The Belleville Little Devils Wrestling program is a proud member of the Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation and USA Wrestling.
