Other Information: 
  • We will follow UIL rules regarding eligibility (grades, concussion, A.C.E. fees through the school, etc.).
  • Wrestling does not change anything in regards to your student's schedule. Regardless if your student is off-campus or has a regular 7th/8th grade schedule, he still needs to complete those requirements (i.e. 7th grade students do NOT get out of off season conditioning during 1st period).
  • Athletes should shower IMMEDIATELY after getting home with an antibacterial soap such as Dial to prevent skin infections.
  • Athletes will practice and compete with other kids their size. They will not be allowed to ‘cut weight.’ Athletes will check and record their weight every day before practice so I can monitor this. 
  • Weight classes: 80, 89, 98, 106, 113, 120, 126, 132, 140, 150, 162, 175, 200, 275
