7-12 Program

At 7:00 p.m., the Parent-Athlete-Coach meeting will begin for wrestlers in the Jr. High through Varsity programs. Annual agenda items include topics such as season event and practice calendar, safety, eligibility, and more. Also plan on meeting new Jr. High wrestling coach hire Daren Wingert, who is currently a junior at UW-River Falls.

NEW! Nutrition Meeting: At the conclusion of the PAC meeting, anyone wishing to is welcome to stay for a short, voluntary nutrition meeting. My hope is to briefly share an overview of my thoughts on in-season nutrition so your wrestler(s) can maintain energy levels, stay healthy, and maintain and grow their strength levels. So I will cover some basic food and hydration concepts, and then open the floor up to parents and wrestlers for a Q and A about any questions they have regarding nutrition, weight control, and more.

We hope to see you there!
