Practices for the first couple weeks (11/3-11/17) will be held in the wrestling room at Maple Point Middle School
(2250 Langhorne Yardley Rd, Langhorne, PA 19047). Novice wrestlers practice Mondays and Wednesdays, 6-7pm. Advanced
wrestlers practice Mondays and Wednesdays, 7-8:30, and Thursdays, 6:30-8:30PM:
Monday & Wednesday Night - Focus
on Technique & Drill 6 – 7 PM

Starting 11/19, practices will resume at our normal location
at the Neshaminy High School Wrestling Room (above Gym 3) - if this changes we will let you know. The high school is
currently upgrading the room, which is why we are temporarily holding practices at Maple Point.
Homework is most important and comes first. Wrestlers should complete their homework before they attend practice.
If your child is sick please keep them home - same rules as you would for school.
This is a contact sport and sickness can be spread easily.
should arrive 10-15 minutes before the start of practice to put their shoes on and prepare for practice.
Wrestlers should wear close fitting clothing (t-shirt, shorts or sweat pants) for
safety and flexibility.
Wrestlers should wear wrestling shoes
and bring head gear. If they do not have shoes just yet, wait until you see if we have some shoes available from our
shoe drive before buying new ones. Also, you can wait to get headgear to see if we have some of those as well.
They can go the first practice without shoes or headgear…they’ll just wear their socks.
Wrestlers should bring a sports water bottle with their name on it. The American
College of Sports Medicine suggests that individuals exercising at a moderate intensity for less than one hour should consume
water. If exercising less than 60 minutes at a high intensity or any intensity for longer than one hour, the preferred fluid
is a sports drink enriched with carbohydrates and electrolytes.
practices are CLOSED to anyone but wrestlers, coaches and parent-coaches. Parents and siblings can wait for their children
in the hallways upstairs or downstairs, or in the open areas outside of the gym area upstairs (there are ledges to sit on
and do homework, play, etc.).
Note: at no time may
children run around the school and/or go into other school areas besides the wrestling room and the halls directly connected
to the wrestling area. The school has no patience for this conduct and will not allow us to continue using the wrestling
room if we abuse the facility.
For the safety of our wrestlers and
to prevent skin diseases, we disinfect the mats before practices start to help avoid skin disorders. Be sure that you
and your wrestler adhere to the following:
Be sure your wrestler(s)
shower as soon as they get home from practice.
must be washed after every practice. Clothes should never be worn a second time to practice without being washed between practices.
Only wrestling shoes are to be worn on the mats during practice.
Wrestling shoes are not to be worn off the mat. Be sure wrestlers carry their shoes
in from the car, put them on when they get to the mat and take them off mat side at the end of practice. They should never
be worn outside.
Spray wrestling shoes and headgear with a
disinfectant spray regularly.
Please see a coach if your wrestler
develops any skin rashes or problems.
PARENTS PLEASE NOTE – THERE WILL BE A VERY QUICK PARENTS MEETING ON WEDNESDAY 11/5, BETWEEN THE NOVICE AND ADVANCED
PRACTICES AROUND 7PM. THIS MEETING WILL JUST COVER SOME GENERAL BASICS AND EXPECTATIONS FOR THE SEASON. PLEASE
BE PREPARED TO ATTEND.***
