About Contenders

ALL ABOUT CONTENDERS

Established in 2006 in his parents’ garage, Contenders Wrestling Academy was founded by Ryan Parrish at the age of twenty. After several years, Contenders moved to Cascade High School when Ryan became the new head wrestling coach. Ryan led the team for three years, after which he decided to focus on training younger wrestlers. Contenders then moved to its first stand alone facility in Plainfield and has been growing ever since.  We have recently made the move to a much larger facility in Brownsburg and are loving our new home.
