Please note NO PRACTICE on nights of High School Wrestling Duals

Practices will start 11/1 and we may restructure times/groups at any time       

In the event that school is canceled or an early out because of winter weather or any other reason, all practices will be canceled for that evening. No School=No Practice.

The following equipment is what will be needed for practice:  

Practice clothes- wrestlers can wear shorts and a t-shirt or a singlet to practice in. (your wrestling club t-shirt will be handed out the first week of practice)

Shoes- wrestling shoes are to be worn for practice. These shoes are only to be worn during wrestling. Bring them with and put them on in the hallway.

Headgear- headgear is not required at practices, but is a good investment as it is required at most tournaments.

Water Bottle- Please have your child bring a labeled water bottle if possible.  This helps to speed up practice so they do not have to wait in line at the drinking fountain.


Tournaments are on an individual basis and not required to be a wrestler in this club.  Competition is a decision that will be up to the individual athlete and their family.  You can find most tournaments listed at under youth tournaments tab. Parents sign up their wrestler online as they see fit. We will predominantly use FB or email (Coaches in each room will use email to communicate if they are going to a tournament). 


Parents in the wrestling room

We are VERY fortunate to have access to the facilities at the Jr High and High School.  We are able to have 10 different practices in a regular week which is HUGE for our club.  We need make sure that we are following certain rules inside the facilities. We will continue to take all the necessary precautions and limit the number of people in a room.  The only parents (outside of Coaches) that will be allowed in the rooms are those who have a child with additional medical needs. This requires prior approval from a coach or board

Thank You again for signing your child up for the 2023 season, please feel free to contact us with any other questions you might have (at email noted below). 

If you plan to be on the mat at any time, you have to provide your current USA Wrestling Coaching card to the Coach in that room beforehand.  This is a safety measure for our youth athletes. 

Please note to plan ahead and have your child go to the restroom before practice.  If it cannot wait, your child needs to have their parent/Coach notified before they leave/return to the room.   

If you plan to be in the room for practices, please honor the Coach and the structure / instruction provided. If you’d like to advise your child directly, please do so after practice so it is not disruptive to all.  This will be enforced at the Coach’s discretion. 

Lastly, please take a moment to review this information on concussions as another preventative measure. Coaches take an online course but if any questions, please contact your personal physician.
