Hello Barrington Wrestling Family!!!
Wrestling season is finally here! And with that, we have a ton of information to pass on. Each week I will be sending out a weekly blast regarding information for the upcoming week. I will aim to get this blast out each Sunday so you are "in the know" for the week. Please be sure to check your email each Sunday so you are aware of the week's happenings.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED CAN BE FOUND AT BHSWRESTLING.ORG. I will not send out practice days and times (unless there is a change) in the weekly update because our schedule can be found on BHSwrestling.org under the "Schedule" tab. You then go to "team calendar" at the top of the BHSwrestling page and you will find practice and meet times. We will not be sending home printed schedules this year, so please check the calendar for times and locations.
If you miss the weekly blast email for some reason it can be found on BHSwrestling.org under the "Announcements" tab (after "announcements" click on "weekly updates").
Overall, please go to BHSwrestling.org for ALL wrestling information this year!!!
The practice and meet schedule is current on the website, but below are some important dates and useful information:
Saturday, November 10th is picture day...order forms wil be sent home with your son by Thursday
Tuesday, November 13th is our "Telethon" Fundraiser in the wrestling room from 4-5 P.M. Your son will be calling, texting, and emailing a list of people for donations. As in the past please have him or her contact people with whom you are comfortable!
Thursday, November 15th is Code Night in the student cafeterial at 6:45 P.M. and a parent must attend in order for your child to compete. Dinner will be provided for the wrestlers.
Friday November 16th and Saturday November 17th are wrestle offs in the wrestling gym
Wednesday, November 21st is our first home dual in the BHS Gymnasium...we will also be setting up for our annual Moore Prettyman Tournament on 11/23 and 11/24
November 21st is also Alumni Night so please stop by the meet if you are an alumnus to be recongnized! The meet starts at 6P.M. and alumni will be introduced between the first and second duals. Spread the word!!!
Please email me or Coach Hoving during the day if your wrestler will be missing practice that day. Wrestlers should not excuse themselves from practice and they should NEVER tell a coach that another wrestler is missing pracitce. That is the job of the parent!
We are asking for a $50 donation from all sophomore, junior and senior wrestlers. The donation will get your wrestler four, BHS Wrestling tee shirts (including this year's wrestling team shirt) and a pair of BHS Wrestling shorts (to be worn as a team at meets). This is the best deal in town for gear and the rest of the donation will go towards program incidentals.
We are asking for a $100 donation from freshman wrestlers. The donation will get your wrestler four BHS Wrestling tee shirts, (inlcluding this year's wrestling team shirt) a pair of BHS Wrestling shorts, and a pair of freshman sweat pants and hoodie which is used for the freshman warmup.
Please block off 11/23/ and 11/24 to volunteer at our annual Moore Prettyman Thanksgiving Tournament. This ia huge tournament and we need EVERYONE to volunteer for a shift or two for this tournament. Your service is much appreciated and we will have sign up directions soon!
Please check the last update that was sent earlier this week...if your son's name is on that list he is eligible to begin practice tomorrow (11/5/18). If not, it means he needs an updated physical OR he needs to complete the wrestling interest survey in HIS Infinite Campus portal.
That's all for now, but we will have much more useful information next blast!
Yours in Wrestling,
