PLEASE SEE UPDATED INFO, 9/24/18

Monday, September 17, 2018

1.      Practices will begin Monday Oct. 1st at the Frank Herald Field House (entry to wrestling room on east side). All practices will be from 6-8pm every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday (some changes during season due to conflicts with HS sports in gym, which everyone will be advised of). Shorts, t-shirt, and wrestling shoes is normal practice attire. Those who don’t have shoes can practice in socks at beginning of year until they have shoes, but sliding around on socks isn’t ideal for the wrestler and bare feet are not allowed on the mats. So the sooner they can get shoes the better. Also due to there being no room for spectators in the wrestling room, we must ask parents and families to leave the facility until the end of practice after dropping off your wrestler. This is simply to ensure we don’t have any incidents at the facility (in or outside the wrestling room) that would jeopardize us being able to use the gym. Of course there will be a grace period early in the season before we start asking everyone to comply. Parents are welcome to hang out until their little wrestler is acclimated and everyone feels comfortable. 

2.       Tournaments will start early Nov. and will basically be every Saturday until the state tournament in early February. These will be $15 and will be hosted at other schools in the area. While none are mandatory we encourage everyone to go to as many as possible. The live match experience is essential for their wrestling development and they deserve to win something after practicing hard all week. Singlets and wrestling shoes will be mandatory for tournaments.

3.       Team singlets will be $90, although some various sizes in older styles may be available for less. They do usually last 2-3 years so you will not have to buy one every season.  We encourage everyone to wear a team singlet if possible, however it’s not mandatory if you’d like to buy a non-Jenks singlet elsewhere.  We will also have optional warm-up and parents gear available with details on those to come.

Membership is $100 before Oct. 1st and $125 after. Even if you can't pay immediately your wrestler MUST be registered with the club to be at practice for insurance reasons. 

ONE MORE WEEK! SEPT. 24TH UPDATES BELOW 

Practices start in one week!  Just a few notes and reminders before the season gets underway.

First there is one more requirement and fee that I forgot to mention. Every wrestler MUST register individually with USA Wrestling.

-          Create (or renew for any previous members) account at https://www.usawmembership.com/login

-          Purchase $15 “Limited Folkstyle” membership (there is a more expensive year-long one that is NOT required)

I’m very sorry for forgetting this in previous messages. This is our first full season with USA Wrestling along with our first season as club board members. Please forgive me for the oversight but I promise there are no more mandatory fees that haven’t been mentioned. This $15 membership makes your wrestler eligible to enter all USA and also makes sure he or she is covered under the insurance provided by USA Wrestling. Thank you so much for your understanding and please let me know if anyone has any issues.

Just a few more notes from some questions I’ve received.

-          All practices are for all ages and while we encourage wrestlers to be at as many as possible none are mandatory and we certainly don’t expect anyone to make every single practice.

-          If anyone has issues with payment through the website please just register and bring a check to practice.

If you are a new member to Jenks Wrestling and have not received the previous emails please see the “Recent News” section on jenkswrestling.com and also like and follow our Facebook page.
