Wrestling is different than other sports your child might play…

 

In football/baseball you are expected to be at every practice and every game, which totally makes sense because it is a team sport.  Wrestling is a little different.  Although, we think the children should be steady at practices to learn the sport, we are not going to hold a child out for missing a practice.  When it comes to competitions, which are mainly on Saturdays, there will be roughly 15 during the season.  We have parents that bring their kids to 3 and we have parents that will have their kid at all 15.  That is up to the parent.  The only tournament we ask you to bring your child too is the State tournament.  That is where we see how they compete against the best in the State and it gives us our feedback as coaches… it lets us know how well we did that season.  Plus, the registration fee for State is included in your membership.

 

No “Daddy Ball”

All kids who want to compete in tournaments, are “starters”.  We do not pick athletes over others, EVERYONE gets to compete.  In a dual situation, we will have a wrestle off between kids at the same weight and age.  The winner, gets the dual spot, NOT the coaches kid. 

 

Wrestling Tournaments are broken down by Experience

If your kid is 9 but he is brand new to wrestling, he will get to wrestle other brand new kids in the “Rookie” division.  They will not have to face another 9 year old with 5 years of experience.  2nd Year wrestlers will wrestle in the “Novice” division against other 2nd year wrestlers.
 

We will have a parent meeting when season starts and after all the other sports (football/baseball) join us.  This will give the parents two opportunities to attend.  

 

      First Parent Meeting              

      Around Oct. 11th                

      Second Parent Meeting

     (do not need to attend both)

      Around November, 22nd

Many baseball and football players will attend a wrestling practice or two per week when they don’t have practices for their other sport.  Most of them start attending wrestling practices when their other sport is over.  That ranges, since some teams get knocked out of playoffs early and others make it all the way to the Superbowl.  We welcome in the wrestlers whenever their other season is over.
