"IT'S NOT THE SIZE OF THE DOG IN THE FIGHT, IT'S THE SIZE OF THE FIGHT IN THE DOG" - Mark Twain  

HOME OF THE BULLDOGS           Proudly Established in November 2006

Wrestling prepares a person to fight the game of life. The wrestler is the one athlete that must meet his opponent and do battle completely on his own; No one can substitute: no time outs are possible. He has no one to check, screen, block, or assist him in any way; There is no one to blame for his mistakes. When he wins, he must show quiet pride and modesty. When he loses, the responsibility is his. Wrestling is a true sport. In other sports, when contact is made, they blow the whistle to stop the action; In wrestling, when contact is made, we're just getting started. No other sport requires more sacrifice than wrestling. The Wrestler, through hard work and commitment, offers more of his character than can ever be explained. It is something he carries with him through life... Through every trial, test, and tribulation. Source: Unknown

Parent Meeting

Monday, November 3rd from 6:30 - 7:30 in the Brandywine High School Gym. 

We strongly encourage all of our new and returning Bulldog Wrestling families to attend the parent information meeting as we will be covering imporant topics about the season -- and there are a few changes.  We are also encouraging those parents of "prospective" wrestlers who are looking for additional information to attend.

Here is the meeting agenda:

• Welcome and Coach Introductions

• Bulldog Program and Coaching Philosophy

• Parent and Wrestler Expectations

• Practice Dates and Locations

• Inter-County Wrestling League (ICWL)

• Matches and Tournaments

• Q&A

 

PLEASE NOTE: If you have not yet registered for this coming season it's not too late.  Forms will be available at the parent meeting, and if you would like to fill them out in advance, the Season Registration Form and Annual Consent and Release Form are both available in the 'Handouts' section of the website (bulldogyouthwrestling.com).

Gear & Safety

If your child has a condition that requires special care, please be sure to advise coaches of this condition.  If your child is asthmatic or has severe allergies, please provide a "spare" inhaler or epipen that are clearly labeled with the child's name that can be kept with the medical aid kit throughout the season.  These items will be returned at the end of the season.

If your child is a diabetic, please provide a "care package" of juice and/or preferred snack that is clearly labeled that can be kept with the medical aid kit in the event of an emergency.  This will be returned at the end of the season as well.

Parents are required to be present at all practices in case of emergencies.  Practice is not a daycare or a drop-off point. 

At practice, the only gear that is needed are clean shoes (wrestling shoes preferred) that you bring in and change into, shorts/sweat pants and a T-shirt.

Do not wear shoes from outside on the mats.  This will help protect expensive mats and reduce the risk of RINGWORM and other BACTERIA - a wrestler's worse nightmare.

Clothing should not be baggy.  Fingers can become entangled and broken.  T-shirts are to be snug or tucked in at all times.

Belts, necklaces, watches and rings of ANY kind are prohibited.  These items will be checked on a regular basis.

Deodorant is recommended and encouraged if you feel your wrestler needs it.  Fingernails are to be kept trim and neat.  You will not wrestle with long fingernails.

Singlets will be provided for events.  The school gym uniform will be used for our warm-ups, which most of our wrestlers already have.  We would like to purchase team T-shirts for wrestlers and parents.  The price will be determined.

We will be using Brandywine's wrestling room.  Our goal is to take care of this room as if it were our own.

Thank You!
