Boys Varsity Wrestling
Reminder, no off-season workout on Wednesday due to school being out. Only workout this week is this Monday, starting 4:45 in the weight room.
If you have them filled out, bring your eligibility forms (white/yellow form) in so I can bundle and turn in to the athletics' office.
Parents and Wrestlers,
At last night's off-season workout, I handed out the eligibility forms that each wrestler will complete and submit to allow the athletics' office to check your academic eligibility and completion of a current year physical and concussion training. It is a two-piece form, top copy is white, bottom yellow. Wrestlers need to fill out the top half of the form with their demographic data, the athletic department completes the bottom.
Once complete, turn the card in to me at the next off-season practice. For those that can't make the workouts, you can get the form from the front office and turn it back in there or to Mr. Qualls.
The completed form and the blue emergency contact cards are your entry passes for the official start of practice on Nov 7. No forms, no practice.
For rising juniors and seniors, opportunity to interact and get on the radar of college coaches if you intend to wrestle at the next level.
