FP Youth Wreslting

The FP Youth Wrestling signups are rescheduled for Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at the Forest Park P.E. gym.   Parents will enter the double doors to the right of the Old Gym entrance.  Cost is $25 and includes a shirt and shorts.  Sample shirts and shorts will be available to ensure a proper fit.   
This is also our first practice for wrestlers.  Practices will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:15 over the following 6 weeks.
Our wresting program, geared for kindergarten through sixth grade, offers students a chance to try out a winter sport that teaches student athletes many important life-long skills: sportsmanship, self-confidence, and mental toughness to name a few.  I encourage you to offer this sport to your child.  Our youth program is a great introduction to the sport.

Contact Ryan Haas or Craig Recker if you have questions.
