Practice Schedule
Novice practice will start on November 12, 2018 in the Hartland High School wrestling room from 6 - 7 PM.  This practice will be for our Novice wrestlers.  A Novice wrestler would be a first year wrestler or any returning wrestler that will begin the season competing in Novice tournaments.
 
Note: If your first year wrestler is older (6th thru 8th grade), plan on attending the Open Practices.
 
Open practice will start on November 13, 2018 in the Hartland High School wrestling room from 6 - 7:30 PM.  The room will be pretty full as we move forward and the instruction will be more advanced so we ask that only Open wrestlers attend this practice.

The practice schedule will be as follows:
Novice practiceMonday & Wednesday from 6-7 PM
Open Practice – Tuesday & Thursday from 6-7:30 PM
Note:  If the high school cancels classes (snow day, etc.) practice will be cancelled.  There will also be no practice when there is a home wrestling event for the high school team.  Dates TBA.
 
Practice Pointers for New Parents
Your wrestler should have wrestling shoes on and bathroom trip done by 5:55 PM.  Practice begins promptly at 6pm. Please do you best to have your wrestler there on time.  Parents are encouraged to sit along the wall inside the wrestling room, but please be mindful when the coaches are speaking conversations must stop.  It’s a relatively room so conversations tend to drown out the coach’s instruction. Thank you for your cooperation.  Your wrestler should wear shorts, a T-shirt, and wrestling shoes.  Street shoes are not allowed on the mats as they can damage them as well as bring bacteria and fungus on the mat.  There will be a mop right before they step on the mat which is a bleach/water mixture that will kill germs, etc.  Coaches will remind wrestlers to step on it when returning from water and/or bathroom breaks, but we need you to remind them too!
 
Birth Certificates
If your wrestler is new to the club, a copy of their birth certificate is required. This is a Mid-Michigan Wrestling Association (MMWA) & USA Wrestling requirement. The association will not allow us to enter your wrestler into any tournaments until they have a copy on file.  If your son/daughter is a returning wrestler, another copy in not necessary for the MMWA/USA Wrestling keeps those on file.
 
Physicals
A copy of a current year physical is required to participate .  A current year physical is one given on or after April 15, 2018.  Form supplied by MHSAA (Michigan High School Athletic Association) or HAYAA (Hartland Area Youth Athletic Association) is acceptable and due on or before the first day of practice.  NO EXCEPTIONS.
