Happy Thanksgiving!

November 26, 2014 1 comment

Best wishes from Coach Foldeak and Coach Rinaldi for a happy, safe and restful Thanksgiving with your families.  We are looking forward to seeing you (and all of the friends you’ve recruited) on Monday for the first day of practice.  Bring clean shorts, shirts, sweats, socks, sneakers and wrestling shoes if you have them.  If you don’t have wrestling shoes, make sure you bring a pair of clean socks — you won’t be allowed on the mat with bare feet.

Also, bring a clean towel, soap and shampoo.  We expect you to shower immediately after practice.  And we expect you to wear clean clothing every day.  Towels should be hung up to dry, washed frequently and never shared.  Ideally, you’ll learn to do your own laundry, and will bring clean clothes and towels every day.

See you Monday!

Season Schedule Update

November 20, 2014 Leave a comment

So far, we know that December’s practices will be “early” — that is, right after school.  We do not know the practice schedule for January or February at this time.

Our meeting this afternoon went well, though our numbers look a little low.  Please encourage your friends to come out and join the team.  Also be on the alert for athletes who don’t make the cut on basketball or other winter sports teams.  A full mat is a happy mat.

Wrestlers and parents, we need your help with planning around the many other activities you have.  Concerts, plays, whatever — if you’re involved in something other than wrestling during the season, we need to know your schedule in advance. Communicate that schedule to Coach Foldeak please. Our competition schedule should be updated on the CIAC site soon and once we know what’s going on with the January and February practice times, we’ll update you here.

Thank you!

THANK YOU!

That’s a big THANK YOU to all the Moms, Dads, wrestlers, and friends of the program who made donations, loaned equipment, and otherwise helped with the concessions at yesterday’s Halloween Bowl!  Another big thank you to the WHS Band, whose hunger and thirst produced a mad rush on the snack mansion during the game’s third quarter.  We appreciate your support! 

The winter sports coaches meeting is in a couple of weeks, and we will update you afterwards if there are any additions, deletions, or other changes to the schedule we posted a few weeks ago.  Our season begins a month from today!  Make sure you take care of physicals, forms, and any fees before then.  It would also be a huge help if any of you who are involved in the school’s other programs share those schedules with us so we can minimize conflicts with concerts, plays, etc. during the season. 

Keep your grades up, plan your work, eat healthy, get plenty of sleep, stay fit, have fun, be safe, and make good choices. 

If you are planning to wrestle at a weight lower than your current weight, it’s a lot healthier and a lot easier to start laying down good habits now.  Many little steps over the next month will add up!
