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.

Good to see you all!

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!

10/23….10/24…

One more reminder about tomorrow’s meeting. After school, outside the weight room. All wrestlers, prospective wrestlers, and managers should attend. If there’s any reason you can’t be there, contact Coach Foldeak by e-mail or text.

By the way, all prospective wrestlers should subscribe to this website by following the instructions underneath last year’s team photo on the “virtual refrigerator” on the right. If your e-mail doesn’t obviously indicate who you are, please also send Coach Rinaldi a quick e-mail explaining who wrestlingistheworldsgreatestsport@yahoo.com really is. Parents please do this too. We want to help the boosters keep track of the new members of the WHS Wresting family.

Oh, one more nudge: Recruit! Recruit! Recruit! A full mat is a happy mat.

10/24 Meeting Reminder

October 21, 2013 Leave a comment

Pre-season meeting with Coach Foldeak right after school outside the weight room on Thursday 10/24.  All prospective and returning wrestlers and managers should attend.  

If you can’t attend, please let Coach Foldeak know.  His contact info is on the Coaches’ Contact Info tab under the website banner.  

Bring your athletic friends.  Encourage underclassmen to come out.  

You are, by far,  the best reason for someone to join the team — so turn on your charm and recruit!   If you find yourself tongue-tied and need some talking points, check out this article, this article, or the 48 wrestling poems here.

Or just show them this clip.

In any event, we hope to see you Thursday.  (By the way, and in case you haven’t noticed, your coaches are getting excited about the season.)
