Men’s NJCAA Wrestling Teams | JUCO Wrestling Teams
Competing at the Junior College or JUCO level can be done by athletes of any level for a few main motivations. Improving grades to later compete at a 4-year school is one. Late bloomers oftentimes find themselves wrestling at the JUCO level only to transfer to become a main contributor at a larger school. JUCO sports can be a huge transition period both academically, as well as athletically. NJCAA wrestling gives an athlete time to mature while competing at a very high level.
How many NJCAA wrestling teams are there?
There are 62 NJCAA or JUCO wrestling teams with 20 scholarships maximum per team, which is by far the largest number across college divisions. As a result, reaching out to coaches at NJCAA wrestling programs can help student-athletes get on a coach’s radar early to set their trajectory for starting at a junior college and possibly transferring to another division level.
