WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE WATERTOWN WRESTLING BOOSTER CLUB?
The Watertown Wrestling Booster Club youth wrestling program has been set up to help promote, support, and build on our great wrestling tradition here in Watertown. The Club will provide each kid with a singlet and headgear at sign-ups. A deposit check is required for the equipment, which is held and then returned when the Club receives the equipment back at the end of the season. We also have some selections of used shoes for sale. The Club membership fees are used for buying equipment for all ages of kids in wrestling. Monies also go back to the families to send kids to wrestling camps, up to $150 per kid; also we help individuals who earn high honors, such as a trip to the Disney Duals or Junior Nationals, & the expenses that go along with that. All monies that are brought in are used to support our wrestling program as a whole.

Sign-ups - Registration will be held on Thursday, December 1st (2016) in the High School concourse area from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
Practices – Practices are 2 days a week beginning the first week of January until the end of March. Days do vary some, because we have to work around the activities occuring at the HS. The practice schedule will be available at sign-ups.
THE MOST IMPORTANT BENEFITS: We believe parents find wrestling to be a very rewarding sport that has a place for all types of kids, big and small. Your son will learn more than just wrestling techniques in wrestling; wrestling will expose your kids to highs and lows like no other sport. It's not just winning and losing. Wrestling builds strength in character and humility. Kids will learn to handle adversity and think under pressure, both very important life lessons.
