Solon Wrestling Club Starts Nov. 2

SOLON– The Solon Wrestling Club announced the beginning of the upcoming youth season for students in grades K-8. The club’s emphasis is learning the fundamentals of wrestling and having fun. The Solon Wrestling Club is lucky to bring back youth head coach and college All-American Dale Handley for a fourth season.
The Solon Wrestling Club has two separate practice sessions, kindergarten through second grade and third through eighth grade. The younger group will focus on learning the basics of wrestling. The session will meet on Monday nights, starting Nov. 6, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the high school wrestling room. The older group covers more extensive techniques and has more intense drilling and conditioning. The older session meets on Monday and Thursday evenings at the middle school wrestling room from 6-7:30 p.m. Practices begin on Monday, Nov. 6.
The cost to join Solon Wrestling Club is $50. The fee includes a Solon Wrestling Club T-shirt and entry to the youth tournament held Jan. 14. Wrestling singlets and other clothing items are available for purchase, but are not required.
Signup will be at ‘Meet the Coaches Night’ on Thursday, Nov. 2, at the middle school. At the event parents and wrestlers will meet the coaches, order wrestling gear, and have questions answered before registering. There will be no practice session on Nov. 2. The registration session is open from 6-7 p.m. for all wrestlers.
Registration forms for the Solon Wrestling Club were sent home with kindergarten through eighth-grade students on Friday, Oct. 20, as well in the Virtual Backpack. A copy of the registration form can be printed off at https://tinyurl.com/SWC17-18.
