SPECIAL NOTES

It will be the responsibility of each parent to get their child to tournaments, there will be caravans to most tournaments. Weight loss is not recommended and is highly discouraged unless that weight loss is due to natural occurrences such as good diet and loss of excess fat.

Try to get involved, wrestling is a close knit sport, and you will meet people from not only all across the state, but across the nation. Fellowship and fun are rampant throughout this great sport, and there is nothing like being around people who understand discipline, hard work, professionalism and success. We are looking for several organized people to become involved in all aspects of the club. During the year we will have many events to raise money to benefit the sport of wrestling, we need each parent to do their part.
