The above attributes, and more, are what the Palmerton “Blue Bomber” Youth Wrestling program strives to provide children ages 4-12 in the Palmerton Area School District.

Blue Bomber Youth Wrestling belongs to the Valley Elementary Wrestling League (VEWL) and provides opportunities for our wrestlers to compete against schools in the greater Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania. We offer three levels of instruction (Novice, Junior Varsity (JV), and Varsity (V)) and focus on teaching the fundamentals of the sport, while encouraging wrestlers to continually endeavor to reach the next, more advanced, level of the sport.
