Weekly update-Week of 9/2/19
Helllo Barrington Wrestling Family!
Two weeks of school are in the books and the season will be here before you know it! Let's not wish the fall away, but I cannot wait until the season starts! This is a big week for BHS wrestling because our annual kickoff picnic is this Sunday at the Hartman's house and pool. We also start our team weight lifting this week. Below is some useful information for your family:
As I mentioned above, our annual kickoff picnic is this Sunday at the Hartman's home in North Barrington. The flyer with the information is contained at the end of this email. Thanks Hartmans for opening up your home to the wrestling program!
We will begin our team weightlifting this week in the BHS weight room. We will lift together as a team Tuesdays and Fridays after school. Below are some general guidelines to get the most out of our lifting program:
1. Please do your best to attend both days of lifting if you are not in a fall sport. Coach Voris, our strength coach has constructed a 10-week program designed to build strength, increase muscular endurance and muscle mass. You should attend both days of lifting to get the most out of it. You can make up a day if you miss, but Coach has slotted the wrestling team to be in the weight room Tuesdays and Fridays, so please try to attend those days.
2. If your son is going to attend the lifting, please have him download the "Train Heroic" app. on his phone and bring the phone to lifting. This will be used to track our lifts and our gains. We will no longer be using paper or card stock and this new app. is awesome!
3. If you do attend our team lifting please stick to our program. We want to avoid coming to the weight room and doing "your own thing" (aka curls and bench press). You WILL get stronger and build muscle mass and endurance if you commit to the program by attending the sessions and working hard!
4. We understand some kids lift on their own at other gyms or at home. These sessions not only help us get stronger, but also create team bonding, which is a huge part of our team. This is a good way to get to know people if you are new, and build our team by being around each other outside of wrestling.
Open mats will begin NEXT Monday, September 9th and a reminder will be sent out in the next blast.
