Next week is the week that practice starts! I know a lot of people have been asking so here’s everything you need to know:

Practice times will be broken up into two groups. We’ll have our younger group consisting of PreK-2nd Graders and our older group of 3rd-8th Graders.

Prek-2nd Graders:
Practice will be twice a week. Monday and Thursdays. Both days will be from 6:00 to 6:45 pm.

3rd-8th Graders:
Practice will be three times a week. Monday will be 7:00 to 8:30, Tuesday will be 6:30 – 8:00, and Thursday will be 7:00 to 8:30.

As a reminder you will drop off and pick up your kids at the high school on the northeast side by the tennis courts. Please try to arrive at least 5 minutes before practice time to be ready when practice begins.

Shorts and a t-shirt are recommended to practice in. Pants will get holes in the knees very quickly. Be sure to dress in layers so they have some coats and pants to wear before/after practice to keep them warm. Wrestling shoes should be put on and taken off in the wrestling room and never worn outside to prevent damaging our wrestling mats. They will be getting a good workout and it gets hot up in that room, so be sure to bring a water bottle to keep them hydrated. Knee pads and headgear are other optional items you may consider getting/bringing.

The practice schedule above will ONLY be for the months of November/December. During this time we will be evaluating all of your kids and switching to a progressive based wrestling practice starting in January when tournament season starts. A lot of you won’t notice too much difference in your practice schedule as practices will still encompass the same dates/times, but some will have the opportunity to attend classes that will push and motivate your wrestler more to make a bigger difference on the mat!

We will also be working on getting our email list up and running to notify you through email as well as Facebook. We will announce when we test that. If you have any other questions, please let us know and we’ll be sure to help you out.

We’re looking forward to starting next week and having an amazing year to come. See you all then!
