Vashon Island Junior Wrestling, The Rockbusters, is an organized group of co-ed wrestlers, ages 5-12 years old. Our coaches and staff are volunteers. We are a member of the Pierce County Wrestling Association. This association includes 20 junior wrestling clubs, divided into 4 divisions. Our club is run entirely by parents and volunteers. We hold elections for the officers. The offices are President, Secretary, Treasurer and Parent Representatives. We also have many committees on which parents are asked to serve. Please consider what committee you want to serve on this season.
