The Dapper Dan Wrestling Classic is the most prestigious high school all-star wrestling meet in the country. Each year, the best wrestlers in the WPIAL match up against the best in a selected state with the main event featuring the best in Pennsylvania against the country's best wrestlers. Now in its 39th year, it has been dubbed "The Rose Bowl of Wrestling."
The Wrestling Classic also has a charitable purpose. Proceeds support a wrestling program at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania, providing under-served youth, ages 5-13, an opportunity to wrestle within the Dapper Dan Youth Sports Leagues. The wrestling program is unique in its emphasis on wrestling skills and conditioning, not just play.
General Admission: $10 (second level bleacher seats)
Reserved Seats: $15 (floor level, blue back chairs on both sides of the gym)
