Dear Wrestling Families:
I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with your child on the 2022 Falcon Ridge Wrestling Team. In order to start our season off well, I would like to inform you about our practice schedules, as well as some requirements for participating on the Wrestling Team.
First of all, we will practice everyday from 3:20 until 4:45. Students should load activity buses by 5pm and parents should pick up students by 5:00pm.
Each team member is required to be at practice every day. If your child needs to miss a practice, please email me or send a note explaining the reason for the absence. In order for the team and the individual to be the very best they can, maximum participation is needed.
Each wrestler will be issued a singlet for meet days. It is your child’s responsibility to keep the singlet clean and return it at the end of the season. Your child will need to provide their own practice shirt and shorts each day. It is recommended that they should have wrestling shoes, headgear, and athletic shoes to wear. There are some sets of headgear that we have.
Each day during practice we will stretch and work out as an entire team. We will practice in the cafeteria area of the school and also utilize the weight room area throughout the season. The wrestlers will learn skills necessary to use during a match and will have different types of cardiovascular and weight training sessions.
Our philosophy at Falcon Ridge Middle School is that schoolwork is the first priority for our student athletes. Please encourage your child to budget their time so school work does not suffer during the season.
I am excited to have the opportunity to work with your child during the wrestling season and I look forward to meeting you at our meets throughout the season. If you have any questions and/or concerns please feel free to email me.
