Established in 2006, Contenders Wrestling Academy is Indiana's premier youth wrestling academy. With Locations in Brownsburg and Greenwood, CWA provides young athletes, ages 4-18, with all of the necessary training to become successful in the sport of wrestling. It is our sincere hope that each athlete will build character, self confidence, self esteem and work ethic, while learning about good sportsmanship and improving their physical health. These are themes that stick with our athletes throughout their lives. Since 2006, CWA has amassed over 450 state champions, 25 Team State titles, and 5 National Team titles. We are currently accepting new athletes with a desire to learn and a passion for the sport.

Contenders lead all other academies in the state with 12 winners of the coveted ISWA Triple/Double Crown Awards. Female athletes do not compete in Greco State, therefore they earn a Double Crown by winning both the Freestyle and Folkstyle State Tournaments. Male athletes earn a Triple Crown by winning all three styles (Freestyle, Folkstyle, Greco). CWA had at least one Triple Crown winner in each eligible divisions. We are so proud of each of these athletes.
