SEP Wrestling Rams 2021-2022 Parent Information Meeting
Thank you for signing up your child up for the 2021-2022 wrestling season. We look forward to helping you and your child learn the sport, and making it a great experience. We hope to cover most everything you need to know and answer any questions you might have about The SEP Wrestling Rams club.
Practices will be divided into 4 Groups.
Pre K and Kindergarten will practice Mondays and Wednesdays at the Jr. High Wrestling room 5:30-6:30
1st and 2nd grade will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Jr. High Wrestling room 5:30-6:30
3rd and 4th grade will practice Mon/Tues/Thurs at the Jr High Wrestling room 6:45-8:00
5th and 6th grade will practice Mon/Tues/Thurs at the High School Wrestling room 6:30-8:00
All practices will begin the week of November 8 and we may restructure times/groups the first of January.
In the event that school is canceled or an early out because of winter weather or any other reason, all practices will be canceled for that evening. No School, No Practice.
The following equipment is what will be needed for practice:
Practice clothes- wrestlers can wear shorts and a t-shirt or a singlet to practice in. (your wrestling club t-shirt will be handed out the first week of practice)
Shoes- wrestling shoes are to be worn for practice. These shoes are only to be worn during wrestling.
Headgear- headgear is not required at practices, but is a good investment as it is required at most tournaments.
Water Bottle- Please have your child bring a labeled water bottle if possible. This helps to speed up practice so they do not have to wait in line at the drinking fountain.
Tournaments are on an individual basis and not required to be a wrestler in this club. Competition is a decision that will be up to the individual athlete and their family. You can find most tournaments listed at www.thepredicament.com under youth tourneys tab. Parents sign up their wrestler online as they see fit. We will predominantly use FB or email (Coaches in each room will use email to communicate if they are going to a tournament).
Parents in the wrestling room
We are VERY fortunate to have access to the facilities at the Jr High and High School. We are able to have 10 different practices in a regular week which is HUGE for our club. We need make sure that we are following certain rules inside the facilities. We will continue to take all the necessary precautions and limit the number of people in a room. The only parents (outside of Coaches) that will be allowed in the rooms are those who have a child with additional medical needs.
Website and Contact Information
Our SEP Youth Wrestling website is: WWW.SEPWRESTLINGRAMS.COM We plan to use this for weather updates (practice cancellation’s), club info, Tournament links to The Predicament (if available) to be able to choose a tournament, and all other information. Our Facebook page is: SEP Youth Wrestling Rams.
Thank You again for signing your child up for the 2021-2022 season, please feel free to contact us with any other questions you might have (at email noted below).
If you plan to be on the mat at any time, you have to provide your current AAU Coaching card to the Coach in that room beforehand. This is a safety measure for our youth athletes.
Please note to plan ahead and have your child go to the restroom before practice. If it cannot wait, your child needs to have their parent/Coach notified before they leave/return to the room.
If you plan to be in the room for practices, please honor the Coach and the structure / instruction provided. If you’d like to advise your child directly, please do so after practice so it is not disruptive to all. This will be enforced at the Coach’s discretion.
Lastly, please take a moment to review this information on concussions as another preventative measure. Coaches take an online course but if any questions, please contact your personal physician.
