Practice Attire: Shorts or sweatpants, and a t shirt. Only clean wrestling shoes are permitted on the mat. Wrestlers must change into their wrestling shoes once they arrive and change them again after practice. If you do not have shoes or can't purchase them at this time, The club has a bin of shoes that we loan out. These are shoes that have been donated to us as wrestlers grow out of them. We will not have them tonight but if you do not have shoes, they can go on the mat in their socks.
Head Gear: All wrestlers must have head gear! We do have a limited supply of head gear that we can loan you. Head gear can be purchased at Schuylkill Valley Sports and Dicks Sporting Goods. There are also several online stores. They can practice without it until you get it but everyone must have it by the time we return from Thanksgiving break.
Hygiene: It is extremely important that you shower/bathe immediately after practice. This is true of all sports but very important in wrestling due to the constant physical contact with others. Wrestling shoes and headgear should be wiped down regularly. There are several skin conditions that are commonly seen in wrestling. Any type of rash or new areas of concern need to be reported to a coach and checked by a doctor. If your child has a cold sore, he or she can not wrestle until it is completely healed. Any open cuts or scrapes need to be covered with a band aide or wrap. Your child should not come to practice if they are sick. All of these guidelines are meant to protect your wrestler and their team mates.
