  • Gold Cards
    Submit all Gold Card paperwork to the SHS Nurse before November 6, 2019 to insure that the Gold Card can be issued prior to the start of tryouts.
     
    Tryouts
    Varsity tryouts begin on November 11, 2019 at 10:00 AM and players must have their completed gold card from the school nurse.  Information on how to get a gold card can be found at
     
     
    Tryouts will take place in the SHS Wrestling Room for all levels (all grades 9-12) per the following schedule: 
    • Monday, November 11, 2019 from 10:00 AM-12:00 PM 
    Please bring a pair of wrestling shoes as you cannot wear everyday shoes on the mat.
     
    Players are expected to be present at all tryout sessions.  Missing sessions will be incorporated into the coach's evaluation of players for the Varsity team.
     
    Tryouts consist of assessments of individual wrestling skills.  Athletes must be willing to work hard and demonstrate maximum effort in all drills.  Strength and conditioning are important aspects of practices.
     
    The coaching staff also tests the athletes for general athleticism.  
     
    Players are also evaluated on their cooperation with other players and their ability to take direction from the coaching staff.

  • Regular Season

    Varsity level wrestling is a commitment of about 2 hours per day, 5-6 days a week with occasional Saturday games and tournaments.  It is our expectation that athletes will be present for all team tryouts, scrimmages, practices, games, and tournaments. 

    Once Competition starts, individual matches go from 4:30 PM-6:30 PM.  Saturday Tournaments are all day.

     

    Varsity is then eligible for post-season play.
