Another Oops on the Calendar…sorry

October 29, 2013 Leave a comment

January practices will run from 5:30-7:30, not 5:30-8:30 as posted on the current calendar.

I guess I was thinking about the extra hour the coaches usually have to wait for the wrestlers to clear out of the showers before the coaches can go home.

Since there have been so many expressions of concern about the late time, I’m going to assume that means that everyone will clear out immediately after a quick shower at the end of practice, and we’ll all get home earlier.

The calendar will be updated to reflect the accurate time later today.

This YouTube video seems to be channeling Arnold Schwarznegger, not Kyle Dake, but the rules are good anyway. Watch and enjoy. By the way, we may try some of the drills this year.

Schedule and Calendar Posted

October 25, 2013 Leave a comment

We have posted links to the CIAC WHS Wrestling schedule on the schedule tab here. That schedule shows Varsity events only, but most non-tournament varsity events will include JV wrestling. It does not show JV-only events.

Please note that the schedule is subject to change, and may not be updated. Follow the website to receive e-mail alerts for any practice/competition schedule changes or any other alerts.

A calendar version of the schedule which shows currently planned practice times as well as combined Varsity/JV events and JV only events is posted here on the calendar page. There’s also a link to a printable version of the calendar.

Please note that the calendar is also subject to change and may not be updated. Again, follow the site to receive updates and alerts via e-mail.

We will let you know the date for the annual “Takedown” event. This is a WHS Wrestling Booster tradition and it is a great way to meet another very important part of the WHS Wrestling family. More on that will follow.

It was great to see all of you today and especially awesome to see so many new faces. Take care of forms, fees, and physicals now please. We start on 12/2 which seems like a long way away…but it isn’t. Don’t put off anything that will keep you from joining us on the mat!

Please continue recruiting. Please encourage new recruits and their parents to register and follow the website so they will be in the loop on all communications.

Look for an announcement soon about our upcoming fundraiser, and about the schedule.

Finally, watch and listen to this. Think of it as a pre-season, pre-match warm-up. Watch until the end! Vincero! Vincero! Vincero!
