Practice

Days
Monday – Friday, Occasional Saturday, Never on Sunday

Pre-practice warm up routine between school and start of practice usually consists of a captain-led run or other conditioning workout. Every athlete is expected to participate.

Hours
3:30pm to 6:30pm in the beginning until teams are divided. Once divided, practices are either 3:30-6:30 or 4:30-7:30 depending on which group you are assigned.  Practices may on occasion last longer than the three hours; coach will do their best to give advanced warning. When practices are running smoothly, may end earlier than 6:30 but early release should not be expected. Over the holidays, some practices will be moved to mornings 8am-11am.  See coach for details.

Holidays

Wrestling is a winter sport – we practice and compete over the winter holidays.  There are some exceptions:  no practice on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. On some years, New Years Day may also have no practice depending on league schedule.

Optional practices include:

  • Day after thanksgiving (if a varsity wrestler NOT competing in novice tournament)
  • Christmas Eve (if not invited to Sierra Classic)
