The Hallsville Kids Club (HKCWrestling) is a not for profit, open wrestling club that welcomes any youth regardless of experience, socioeconomic status, gender or race. We are a chartered club of Missouri USA Wrestling. Our mission is to provide a positive learning environment through the vehicle of wrestling to instill discipline, fair play and a positive work ethic.
