Practice

Hello Pinedale Pummelers!

Practice will begin Tuesday, 1/8/2019 @ 5:30 p.m. at the Wrangler Gym. The 1st week practices will be held all together on Tuesday night and then again on Thursday, 1/10/2019. We will then split into 2 groups offering a beginner level practice on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. This practice will be geared towards those wrestlers new to the sport as well as kids wanting to work on the basics. This will be a “fairly” low key practice similar to our traditional practices.

We will be providing a more advanced practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 7:00. These practices will be geared to wrestlers with a solid understanding of the basics and will focus on more advanced techniques. These practices will be much more intense both physically and mentally, as well as technically more difficult.

If after the 1st week you have any questions or concerns about the placement of your child for practices, please discuss your concerns with one of the coaches.

For practice your child will need either a wrestling singlet or shorts and a shirt. Shorts must not have any rivets, zippers, etc. as those items will damage the wrestling mats. Wrestling shoes are not a must, but if you chose to wrestle in tennis shoes they must be clean, free of debris and dedicated to wrestling only. We do have a lending box that you are welcome to look through, or there are many online wrestling stores to purchase gear from. Headgear is encouraged at practice as well, but not mandatory. Headgear is mandatory at tournaments.
