What can I do to learn wrestling?
 
I'm still in high school and my school has a wrestling team, so I was thinking I might go out for that, even though I am about to be a senior and it's a little late to start, but I'm not sure if I'll have enough time because next year I'll have 3 AP classes and I go to BJJ 4-5 times a week. Is this my last chance to learn wrestling, or will it be possible to learn wrestling after high school?

I'd rather learn wrestling from a wrestling coach, not an MMA coach, but it might turn out I have no choice.

You can learn wrestling at the CC/College level. There are sometimes wrestling clubs as well too

Yeah but you have to try out, and with no wrestling experience my chances are at about zero.

Even if you didn't offically make the team you could probably still go to the practices.

Yup, my thoughts exactly.

Really there is no 'making the team' in wrestling. You show up you're in. I'd say, looking at that schedule, you should think about talking to that wrestling coach and tell him what you had in mind. He may just let you show up to the practices a couple of days a week to work out. You may not wrestle any matches but you should learn at the very least the basic techniques and fundamentals.
