Last year we offered supporters of the Rutgers Wrestling program and amateur wrestling in New Jersey the opportunity to become members of the SKWC. Many wrestling fans joined the Club and as a result we were better able to support both the Rutgers Wrestling team and amateur wrestling at the local, national, and international level.
Annual SKWC membership will be for the year beginning November 1 and ending on October 31. Anyone joining prior to November 1, 2017 will be credited with membership through October 31, 2018.
The Club will hold 2 members-only meetings per year. The meetings will feature presentations along with question and answer sessions. Presentations will be made by the Rutgers Wrestling coaching staff, SKWC resident athletes, SKWC officers, and other prominent members of the wrestling community.
