important info for the upcoming season

Parent orientation discussion:

*Our goal is for every wrestler to have an enjoyable season, have fun, get better no matter his/her skill level, and win some matches throughout the season.
*Practice times are Monday-Wednesday-Thursdays
5:30-6:30 for 5-6 year olds
5:30-7:00 for beginner wrestlers
6:30-8:30 for advanced wrestlers(2+ years)
If you are unsure what group to attend, please ask.
*We would appreciate help in setting up mat, washing mats, and rolling up mats each night.  Also please take a look around at the end of practice to help clean up the practice area.  
*Practice attire is athletic clothing. Shorts and t-shirts work the best. Wrestling shoes or socks required on the mats. NO STREET SHOES!! Headgear is optional for practice but required for tournaments. If your child has braces, a mouth guard is required at practices and tournaments.
*If you are having trouble finding any gear, please let us know.
*If your child is sick, please have them stay out of practice. We do not want to get the rest of the club sick. If your wrestler has any new skin conditions after practicing, please let Andrea or a coach know before returning to the mat. This is very important to keeping the practice room free of skin issues.
*Please bring a water bottle with your wrestlers name on it to every practice. Forgotten water bottles with no name will NOT be saved.
*Shower or Bath after every practice with a good, anti-bacterial soap.
*We will be very busy the first few weeks of practices but if you have any questions, please ask.
*If you are interested in coaching or helping out in any way, please see Andrea at practice.
*We are 100% volunteered based. Please be patient while we start the season off.
*Returning parents, please reach out and make yourselves available to new parents. We have a large club and it can be very intimidating trying to learn the program.
*If getting gear or attending tournaments is difficult due to financial reasons, please reach out to Andrea or Myself. We want all wrestlers to have an equal opportunity at a great season.
*The entire schedule is online at
I look forward to meeting all of your wrestlers as the season gets going. Again, please bring any questions forward at practice or via email.
