The registration fee for practice only is $110. This pays for a USA Wrestling membership, a t-shirt, the end of season banquet and facility use, and a full year subscription to USA Wrestling Magazine.

Your child will need wrestling shoes, headgear, and a water bottle at every practice and tournament. Knee pads are optional.

Practices are on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00 – 8:30pm. Start date is November 14, 2017. To help keep the kids healthy, we recommend they wear warm clothing to and from the school, including a hat or hood, and they get a bath or shower when they get home. Practices are open for parents to attend and watch at all times. Parent participation is highly encouraged.

Cutting weight will not be tolerated.

Attendance at tournaments is mandatory. Transportation is the parents’ responsibility unless other arrangements are made. Maps and address will be provided for each tournament site along with arrival times. Please arrive no later than the designated arrival time prior to the start of the tournament for instructions and warm up. Tournaments typically begin at 1:00 pm and are finish by 4:00pm with the exception of the Regional and Year-End Tournaments.

Our club needs to provide seven volunteers for each tournament – These will be assigned at the beginning of the season, if you can't work a tournament then you will need to find someone else to switch with. Training will be provided.

Communication is vital for the success of this program. Please let us know when your child will not be able to attend a practice or tournament.
