STARTING DATE:  Starting on June 20 throughout the summer practices will only be held at this new location. We cannot use OMHS and Hammond HS during the summer months.   There may be a few Tuesdays that they will not practice over the summer, and we will get those dates out to you in advance.

Day: TUESDAYS

Time:  7-8pm

Orange crush meets at Hammond HS and OMHS from March to June and then September to November.  The summer months at Crazy 88 are a bonus when we get the space. This year it will be at Crazy 88 1 day a week over the summer.

 

 

  • Minimum age:  6
  • Max age:  18

  • Cost:  $99

  • Description:  Learn valuable skills and techniques while participating in the Vipers Orange Crush – Off Season Wrestling.   This program offers an opportunity for beginner and intermediate wrestlers to participate and get ready for next season.  Practices go until the end of the school year and then resume again in September. Practices follow the Howard County Schools Calendar, so if schools are closed, there is NO practice.

     

    **THEY CAN ATTEND EITHER LOCATION ONCE THEY REGISTER FOR 1.  THIS GIVES THEM THE OPTION TO ATTEND ON WHATEVER NIGHTS ARE MOST CONVENIENT DURING IN SEASON SPRING SPORTS SCHEDULES.

 

  • Mondays and Thursdays at Oakland Mills HS – Auxiliary Gym
  • Start:  3/23/17
  • 7:00-8:00pm
  • Head Coach – Brad Howell & Bobby Farace

 

  • Wednesdays at Hammond HS – Wrestling Room
  • Start:  3/22/17
  • 7:00-8:00pm
  • Head Coach – Will Yeo


When schools are closed to students and teachers, there is no practice but when schools are closed for students but open to teachers, we hold practice.  If you look at a school calendar from the Howard County Public Schools Website, you will notice there are many days in which kids do not have schools because of professional learning days and it says schools closed for students.
Schools closed for students – We practice
Schools and Offices Closed – No practice

 

Wrestling In-Season starts in November and runs through February. 

Registration will open August 3 2017.
