George and Eleanor Reinitz Wrestling Centre

The Best of Wrestling is at the Y

Reinitz Wrestling Centre
Home to the Montreal Wrestling Club

The Reinitz Wrestling Centre, located in the Sylvan Adams YM-YWHA, is powered by expert coaches, Olympians, and World Champions. The Wrestling Centre was made possible by George and Eleanor Reinitz. George wanted to leave a legacy while allowing children to benefit from the sport as much as he did. They are both still avid supporters of the club.

If you visit the centre, you will most likely see a group of high-level wrestlers, both teenagers, and adults, training for their next big competitions. The wrestling club is more than just a club, it is a community of people who support athletes of all ages and levels who share a common passion for the sport.

Voices of the Reinitz Wrestling Club

“it’s the best wrestling club in Canada. I train as often as three times a week and having access to the pool, sauna and weight room to complete my training is very advantageous.”

Georges St-Pierre, UFC World Champion

“The best feeling is the minute just after they raised my hand (at the 2022 Senior World Championships), where I’m able to run over to the corner and hug my coach, Dave. It’s such an emotional moment, he’s already invested 11 years into my athletic development and has put in just as much energy as I have. This win is as much his as it is mine and being able to share that moment with him was incredibly special.”

Linda Morais, Y Wrestler

“Ever since then, the Y has been like a home, full of warm and welcoming staff that greet me every morning with big smiles. The Y, and the Eleanor and George Reinitz Wrestling Centre, made the transition back to training an amazing experience, and all of the new equipment helps me become a better athlete every day.”

Virginie Kaze-Gascon, Y Wrestler
