What is BAWA?
BAWA's role is to provide support for the
entire Boyertown Wrestling program from the Youth to the Senior High level.
BAWA's intention is to draw on the various community resources such as the
skills and knowledge of the wrestling alumni and other fans in our area. In
addition, we want to create a consistency in all levels of wrestling, thereby
making it easier for the wrestlers to progress and reach their potential.
Therefore, we welcome members from all areas of our community from the
parents to the wrestlers to the fans. This will help create the continuity that
is vital to any successful wrestling program.
Our responsibilities include hosting tournaments such as the Bear Duals,
Grizzly Duals & PAC Championship; maintaining the BASHwrestling.com website;
offering financial scholarships; providing funds for equipment, camps &
tournaments; organizing and running wrestling clinics for Boyertown wrestlers;
and supporting all levels of Boyertown wrestling in any way possible.
Each year BAWA has several fundraisers to help cover the costs of the wrestling
programs in the Boyertown area. Here are just some of the various fundraisers over the years:
- Cornhole tournament
- Golf tournament
- Concession stand during High School home matches and tournaments
- Boyertown Fun Days
- Good Fortune Lottery

History of BAWA
For a number of years, the concept of an all-inclusive umbrella organization had been discussed by several
coaches in the district. One of the first attempts to create this organization occurred in 2001-02 when the
youth program and the high school parents association met to discuss merging the two. Although that did not
work out, the seed had been planted.
During the 2003-04 season, the high school coaches had discussed the desire to create, organize and run a
dual meet tournament at Boyertown Area Senior High. However, such an event requires large numbers of
volunteers and support from the community. Thus, while the tournament was being organized, so was BAWA. By
April 2004, all 10 teams for the 1st Annual Bear Duals were set as was the first meeting of BAWA. On June
22, 2004, BAWA was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization. Then, on February 9, 2005, BAWA was
officially approved as a 501c3 tax exempt non-profit organization.
