Tomorrow is our first day of practice, and I am very excited to get going. This can be a long season with our holiday breaks, but to move forward in this sport consistency when it comes to practice and mat time goes a long way so please try and be at practices when we have them scheduled. With that being said, I know your kids are involved in many other activities, and sometimes you aren't capable of being at practice which I totally understand.
Practice this Week:
We will practice Monday-Wednesday at Cheyenne Mountain High School, and Thursday evening at Cheyenne Mountain Junior High. All practices will run for 6:15-7:45 PM. Please allow a little extra time on Thursday evenings to roll and put away mats. Monday and Wednesday practice will be all 4th-8th graders, Tuesday practice will be all Kindergarten-3rd graders, and Thursday practice will be all grade levels together.
We will also have a gear exchange on Thursday evening quickly after practice. Please bring any old wrestling gear you may have that you would like to donate to another family that may need it. This is a good opportunity to shake hands and get to know some of the other families in our program. It takes a village to create a great program and wrestling community! Thanks again and as always please reach out with any questions or concerns.
I have attached a spreadsheet with everyone who has reached out to me thus far regarding their son or daughters uniform sizes. Please take a look at this to make sure that what I have on there looks correct. If you do not see you son or daughters name on the list please get me those sizes ASAP! The deadline to have these in is October 14th 2019, so it is quickly approaching. If you don't get these to me for our first order, your son or daughter will surely miss multiple competitions without this gear! Please also understand that if you haven't at least paid the initial cost of $150 to have your wrestler registered for the CMWC 2019-2020 Season I will not be able to order the gear for your kid until you do, even if your name is on the uniform size list. This is because the cost for the uniforms is part of the registration fee. If you haven't already, please register your wrestler and email me their uniform size.
USA Wrestling Card:
You must have a USA Wrestling Card for your son or daughter before you are allowed to practice! This is who our insurance policy is through, so your athlete will not be allowed to step on the mat until you have one. You should all print out the card once you have it, as you will have to show the front desk workers at every Peak 2 Peak Tournament before you will be allowed to compete. I will also go through and print out all wrestlers cards that have gone through and affiliated themselves with Cheyenne Mountain Wrestling Club. Our first practice I will have a copy of every wrestlers USA Wrestling Card, and I really don't want to have to tell anyone that they aren't allowed to practice because they don't have it! The USA Wrestling Card can be acquired at www.usawmemberships.com. Thank you very much for your time, and as always please feel free to reach out with any questions.
The registration for the CMWC 2019-2020 is now up and running. Please dropdown the CMWC tab on the home page and take a look at the, "How to Register," tab. Once you have done this go back and click on the register tab. There will be a link for the registration in this location. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any potential questions.
Welcome to the 2019-2020 Cheyenne Mountain Wrestling Club. The Parent Meeting is scheduled for Monday October 7th at 6:30 PM in the Cheyenne Mountain High School Cafeteria. The address of Cheyenne Mountain High School is 1200 Cresta Rd. Colorado Springs, CO 80906. Please enter through the main school doors, and walk up the stairs to the cafeteria. Looking forward to a great season!
I have attached a link to the 2019-2020 Cheyenne Mountain Wrestling Club Apparel Store below. The store contains clothing items available for family members, as well as additional items for athletes if you so please. You can also see the 3 items that will make up our athletes uniform package. These items are; boys and girls singlet, competition fight shorts, and an under armor dry-fit t-shirt. Please DO NOT purchase any of these 3 items, as I will order the uniform package for each athlete myself. The fee for the uniform package is a part of the registration fee, so I will take care of ordering this. I have attached pictures of each item just to be safe. Any other clothing items you are more than welcome to purchase yourself!
The store is currently open, and the deadline to get any personal orders will be October 14th. Please send your sizes for each of the 3 uniform items to Coach Allgood at email@example.com. The deadline to get these sizes in will also be on October 14th so I can get our order in and get things rolling! (P.S. the Under Armor dry-fit t-shirt runs a little large so I would suggest ordering a size smaller than what your son or daughter typically wears).
Cheyenne Mountain Wrestling Club develops young wrestlers in positive, safe, character-based programs. The focus is on improving individual abilities and personal skills, being an encouraging teammate, making new friends, promoting a healthy lifestyle, and having fun.
