The 2016 "Introduction to Wrestling" program will be in November at the S.L. Aquatic Center. 
Dear Parents:                      

        Would your son or daughter like to join the 2016 Spring Lake Youth Wrestling - Introduction to Wrestling Program? This is a 4 week – 7 session program beginning Tuesday, November 1st . This program will expose your young wrestler to the exciting and challenging sport of wrestling. Each wrestler will learn fundamental skills and moves of high school (folkstyle) wrestling. We will work hard to provide a safe, supportive, and fun wrestling experience. It is our hope that after the 7 sessions your child leaves with some basic understanding of how to wrestle and desire to keep learning years to come. We also hope they have fun!

 

Here are some specifics:

  * COST – This year there is a 35 dollar fee for this program for each wrestler. The wrestler

will receive a Spring Lake wrestling t-shirt and, if attendance is good, a medal at the end of 

the program


  * This program is for students, boys and girls, from 1st grade through 6th grade.


  * The sessions are Tuesdays and Thursdays evenings starting Tuesday November 1st   – see calendar


  * All sessions are in the Wrestling Room at the Spring Lake Fitness and Aquatic Center


  * Please be on time dropping off your wrestler and picking him or her up.

        Session 1 – 6:00-7:00  (1st and 2nd graders)  

        Session 2 – 7:15-8:15 (3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th graders)


  * There will be a parent meeting on November 1st, the first evening of wrestling, beginning at 6:00 (1st, 2nd grade parents) and then again at 7:15 (3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th grade parents) outside the wrestling room at the SL Aquatic Center


  * The best wrestling attire is a t-shirt, shorts, and clean gym shoes or wrestling shoes. Please, no jeans, pants with buckles/snaps, or cut off shirts. Wrestling in socks is unsafe. Please remember to bring a clean pair of gym shoes or wrestling shoes.


  * If the Aquatic Center closes due to poor weather than obviously our practice will be cancelled. If the Spring Lake Public Schools cancel for a snow day but the Aquatic Center remains open we will have practice but use your best judgment about driving. If you feel conditions are unsafe then please do not risk driving to practice that night.


  * NOTE – MYWAY wrestlers from previous years – This is an Introduction to Wrestling program. You are allowed to participate if you would like but plan to review and practice the basic moves of wrestling. The MYWAY season officially starts in December. 


  * Any questions or concerns please contact Coach Garth Trask   at 616-502-7601 or by email at gtrask@springlakeschools.org
