New to the wrestling game? Our staff of trainers will give you all the tools you need to be ring ready at a pace that works for you.
The process begins with a tryout that will be regularly scheduled once per month (starting in May 2022) to determine your physical fitness and capability of being a successful professional wrestler. After that, classes will be held twice a week with hands on instruction.
You will be given regular encouragement, coaching and feedback to help you meet your goals, and mold you into the best professional wrestler you can be!
First tryout is scheduled for May 1, 2022! Join the Journey Pro Wrestling Academy First Class!
- Tryout Cost: $100 (this will apply towards the deposit towards your tuition if accepted). If you have helped out on crew for at least 3 Journey Pro shows, this tryout cost is waived.
- Tuition Cost: $2500 – A $500 deposit is due upfront before your first class, with monthly payments of $100 a month for 20 months thereafter.
Students can assume to advance at different paces, and that’s okay. Our training staff will work with you personally to make sure you are ready and confident to go out into the greater world of professional wrestling, and offer critical feedback and encouragement along the way.
We here at Journey Pro have access to great professional wrestling referees who can train those looking to get involved without (as much at least) of the physical wear and tear. We will be introducing a referee training program within the next few months, so stay tuned!
