Every wrestler dreams of letting their inner beast shine and that is exactly what youth wrestlers ages 5 to 16 will get the opportunity to do at the Beast of the West Tournament.  Rocky Mountain Nation (RMN) Events and Placer Valley Tourism have teamed up for the second year in a row to bring this phenomenal wrestling event back to Hardwood Palace in Rocklin this coming weekend on Dec. 5-6
Saturday will feature the age divisions 6-10U and 7-9 Rookie, whereas Sunday will focus on 12-15U, 10-12 Rookie and 13-15 Rookie age divisions.  They will utilize 14 mats for the competitions with nearly 600 wrestlers competing each day.  
Youth athletes and wrestling teams from more than 10 western states are expected to be in attendance.  First place winners in all divisions will be awarded with an incredible championship belt and second through sixth place will receive custom four-inch medals.  
RMN Events has an outstanding reputation for bringing top-level competition to their tournaments and is known for having the best opening ceremonies in the business. The Beast of the West is no exception and will feature an amazing laser light show, special guests and more.
