Littleton Youth Wrestling, (DBA “Tiger Wrestling”) was founded in 2011 by Coach James Kennedy, a former all American high school and collegiate wrestler who wanted to revive Littleton’s wrestling program. Kennedy recognized from his own experience that wrestling provides a structure and a competitive environment conducive to both academic and professional growth and wanted to create the same opportunities for others.
