FROM THE DESK OF COACH MCNAMARA
Things are really starting to get busy. We have our first tournament in less than 3 weeks. Our wrestlers are doing a great job of preparing and working hard in the practice room. Please continue to encourage your wrestler. The sport of wrestling is a great sport but it is very challenging. Our wrestlers need their parents to be supportive and positive with them.
I have attached our Tournament schedule for our wrestlers that are eligible to participate in tournaments this year. If your child is a first year wrestler and is younger than 7 years old you will not be eligible to participate in these tournaments. These tournaments are not mandatory. Please only choose the tournaments that fit your family schedule.
We only have one week left for our fundraiser. Please continue to sell our Fantasy Football Fundraiser Cards. It is very important for our club to have a profitable fundraiser. We depend on our fundraiser to help us operate our club. This Thursday at 6 pm we also have our Battle of the Bones Booster Club Fundraiser. Please buy your tickets tonight at the front desk.
We have our Beginner Tournament coming up in less than three weeks. This is a tournament that we host here at Lincoln Middle School. I have attached a volunteer form for parents to fill out and turn in to the front desk. We need a lot of volunteers for this event. If you are free on December 6th we will need your help with our tournament. Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope every one has a great week!
