Recommended Posts

I want to invite your team to our Knockout Christmas Classic on December 28 and 29, 2018 at Osceola High School in Kissimmee, Florida. 


This past season, our 38-team field featured teams from three states, 19 of which finished in the top 10 at their state championships the previous season.  The tournament included 14 State Champs, 70 State Place Winners, and 127 State Qualifiers. 


Here is a quick rundown of the finals matches and the finalists’ credentials from the previous year.

I’ve posted the finals matches, along with most of the semis and consi finals, on our youtube channel.  You can access that here.




Next year’s tournament will be streamed live on trackwrestling. 


Our tournament runs on seven mats through trackwrestling.  Each champion receives a custom Knockout Christmas Classic singlet from Knockout Sportswear. 


Our high school is located about 20 minutes from Walt Disney World, 30 minutes from Universal Studios, 30 minutes from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) and about an hour from the Orlando Sanford Airport (SFB).  For you football fans, Camping World Stadium in Orlando hosts the Camping World Bowl and the Citrus Bowl during the same week.    


Many hotels in the area offer discounted wrestling rates for our tournament attendees.  There are also many rental homes in the area available on sites like Airbnb.   


If you have any questions, or would like more information, feel free to ask.  My email address is cashdona@osceola.k12.fl.us   Hope to hear from you soon.
