Wrestling Information

Let’s continue to build this program!!

 

ØFalcons Youth Wrestling is entering its 2nd season and is available to kids in grades 1-8.  No prior wrestling experience is necessary.

 

ØParticipants will wrestle with kids of similar weight/age/ability level.

 

ØThe season runs from November 28th until February 14th.  Practices are every Mon and Tue from 5:30-7PM in the Midway Room at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center.   

 

ØSeveral local youth tournaments will be promoted throughout the season.

 

ØThere will be a FREE “preview/intro night” on Tuesday November 22nd so that participants AND parents can learn more about the sport of wrestling and what to expect from the Falcons program.  Everyone should attend even if you participated last year.  First official practice is Monday November 28th

 

ØCost is $100 (plus a $6.50 insurance fee).  Your registration fee includes a sweatshirt, t-shirt and shorts which participants will be able to keep.  It also includes a singlet which will be issued to your son if they choose to participate in tournaments.  Participation in tournaments is optional. 

 

ØParticipants will need wrestling shoes and headgear (preferably in Falcons colors).  They should wear shorts and a t-shirt to practices.  Knee pads, mouth guard, sweatpants and sweatshirts are optional. 

 

Program director is current Parkside High School head varsity wrestling coach Burt Cashman.  Other local coaches and wrestlers will be on hand at practices to assist.  We are always looking for volunteers to help!  Contact Coach Cashman at bucashman@gmail.com if you are interested in helping.

ØSecond…To OFFICIALLY register you must go to the Civic Center box office or register through the Wicomico Co Rec and Parks website…
