Boulder Bandits is a youth wrestling club dedicated to the betterment of Boulder’s youth through wrestling. Wrestling not only builds strength and aerobic conditioning, it also fosters self-confidence and builds character. Through competition, the wrestlers learn respect for their coaches, teammates, and opponents. Most importantly, they learn to believe in themselves.
