Wednesday night Clinics – 6pm

Coach Brian will be bringing special guest wrestlers to teach clinics on Wednesday nights in our Auxilliary Gym.  All ages welcome.

Cost is $10 per wrestler per session paid that night to cover fee for guest wrestler.

End of Year Party

Our end of year party will be held on Saturday, March 19th from 3pm – 6pm at the Gloucester Township Rec Center.

We will have food and games for the boys.  No charge for wrestlers.

Singlet Return/Jacket Sizing

We will tweet soon about a date for singlet return and jacket sizing.  We will have jacket samples in all sizes for children and also samples for any adults who would like to purchase a jacket.  We will give a price as soon as we have finalized it.

ALL wrestlers must come for sizing and return singlet in order to order a jacket as sizing is very important and parents must provide an initialed agreement on the name going on the jacket.  If there are any problems, please text Maria to discuss once the details are set.

All singlets must be returned no later than 3/8 in order for us to order a jacket for the wrestler.

Please pass this information along to anyone who may not see the website or get tweets.

Please direct all questions to Maria via text.

Thank you.

Tom

    I FOUND THIS ON A FORUM AND I THOUGHT THAT EVERY WRESTLING PARENT COULD RELATE!

    A Father’s Letter to His Son

    Spence,

    You had a tough time on the mat today and the ride home was pretty quiet. I admit I was very disappointed but I later came to realize that I shouldn’t be and that it is all part of the journey you are taking.

    When I watch you on the mat I worry that you are doing battle while unprepared and that I have failed in your preparation. As a father that is my greatest fear, that you are unprepared to face the challenges that will come before you. I want you to be prepared for your match, but I’ve come to realize that it is the matches themselves that, are in the long run, win or lose, the things that ARE preparing you.

    I think that the greatest benefit from wrestling is learning to face challenges and to demand the most from yourself. You learn to fight when you think there is no more fight left within you. You learn to get up after you’ve fallen, time and time again. You learn about sacrifice and about pain. You learn to endure and to overcome. This is what I want for you, not because I wrestled, but because these lessons are the true gifts of this sport. So, those losses today were actually part of this gift, and an important part of the journey.

    My dream for you is to not just win championships and fill your room with medals. My dream for you is much greater and I hope you get much more from wrestling. I hope you learn to strive for greatness even if you fail in the attempt. I hope you learn to get up one more time when you think you can’t get up any longer. I hope you learn to not only face your fears, but to stare them down.

    Wrestling isn’t about winning. It is about the desire to win. It isn’t about success, but rather the determination to succeed. I want you to succeed as a wrestler, not to win state championships, but I want you to be a successful wrestler so you learn to be all that you can. This sport can help teach you that, if you let it. I look forward to the seasons of our future as you go through these lessons and I’ll be in your corner for each and every one of them. I love you.

    Dad
