Captains practice will be from 4:30-5:45 tonight, it was originally scheduled for 6:30.
Blue cards are due before the first practice on Monday! Without them the boys can’t practice! We only have 15 practices before our first event….the boys can’t afford to miss practices!
JH/HS Wrestling PARENTS: Please do not relay this message to your wrestler. This message is to be found by your wrestler on his own time and effort.
7th-12th grade WRESTLERS: Please text me by Thursday, Nov 14th, by 8:00 p.m. the following sentence ‘I am a champion….your name’
WRESTLERS: My phone number is: 507-358-1344. If you do not have a phone borrow a parents or relatives. If you borrow another wrestlers phone DO NOT TELL HIM WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND ERASE YOUR MESSAGE WHEN YOU ARE DONE.
WRESTLERS: This is confidential, do not tell any other wrestler that they are suppose to text me. If you do, you are hurting your team by cheating. Your teammates should have received the same info you did and should be texting me just as you are. I am very proud of every wrestler but I’m especially proud of you right now for reading this and following instruction and communication! Be proud of yourself, you have started the year off in a great way and have learned a skill that will help you the rest of your life!
FYI, we are working on communication, following through with instructions, and integrity with this group. These kids have many qualities but there are a few areas they need to work on as individuals and as a team. When we break through these barriers, their strengths of togetherness, hard work, dedication, technique, strength, and belief, will certainly blend together for a successful season! I am 100% confident they will get their with all of our help!
WRESTLERS: Last thing, if you were told by a parent, another teammate, a fan, or a random person to text me the message, use INTEGRITY! It’s your job to tell me the truth to my face…not by text or phone.
***Reminder to add your email/phone number to the distrubution list found under the “high school” tab to receive updates from coaches unpublished on the website/facebook/twitter accounts. ***
