The calendar has flipped to August and the TV is running “back to school” commercials. That means fall club wrestling is just around the corner!
School starts September 4th, and there will be a team meeting on Monday, September 8th. Everyone will be weighed, and the fall schedule will be handed out along with other paperwork such as the 2015 Beat the Streets Permission Slip, and a USA Wrestling membership form.
All returning wrestlers, and those trying out for the team, are expected to attend the meeting and have their PSAL paperwork ready to hand in.
PSAL Parent Consent Form
PSAL Medical Form
Without these forms completed ahead of time, the new wrestler cannot practice.
The first mat session of the USA Wrestling charted Madison High School Wrestling Club is Tuesday, September 16th.
All Madison wrestlers will have their individual USA Wrestling membership paid for by the program. This is a full membership, good for an entire year.
There will be practices at Madison on Tuesdays:
September 16th, 23rd, and 30th
October 4th, 11th, 18th and 21st
There will be practices on Saturdays at Beat the Streets:
October 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th
IN SEASON practices start on November 1st. We practice every school day and Saturday in November. Competitions start in December.
All new wrestlers will need a pair of wrestling shoes. It is not necessary to spend a lot of money, there are many decent shoes available that are far less expensive than the sneakers you are probably wearing.
All new wrestlers will need headgear. This is to prevent cauliflower ear, and headgear is mandatory for all matches during the season. Sharing headgear with another wrestler is not an option. Hygiene is important.
There are still many chances to get on the mats in Brooklyn during the month of August in preparation for the fall club season.
August 4- Aug 28:
@ Grand Street Campus: Monday THRU Thursday, 9-12 NOON
@ Brooklyn Tech: Monday THRU Thursday, 4:30-7 PM
