News and Announcements
6th – 8th grade parents,
Practice after school has been rescheduled due to Coach Zeb being ill. We have moved their practice to be with everyone else at the barn from 6-7:30 pm. Please remember that we need sign ups, payment, win/loss record and record sheets turned in for Districts!!
OYW Parents and Wrestlers,
I can’t believe that the season is winding down! It has been an amazing season watching your wrestlers grow on and off the mat. We have the best group of parents, wrestlers and coaches in our family. We have clubs all around Missouri ask us how to get people involved and how we have such a supportive, loving, close club, and we always tell them that it is because of our parents. We could not do any of this with all of you!!
We have one more regular season tournament and that will be Saturday, February 16, at Reed Springs. This is an Open tournament, but is generally smaller and really good for all of our wrestlers to attend. After that tournament we start the State Series tournaments. These are for our 8U – 14U wrestlers. With that being said, our last regular season practice will be Thursday, February 14.
Wrestlers that participate in the Jr. High Practice (6th grade – 8th grade) your last after school practice will be Thursday, February 14th. You will then be practicing with the other wrestlers that are going on with the state series. We will continue to practice from 6:00 – 7:30 – we will turn the intensity up a notch to get your wrestler ready for Districts.
We will be having an end of season banquet Tuesday, March 5, so please save the date. More information will be sent out at a later date. We will use this time to turn in singlets and issue your refund/deposit. If you need to turn in your singlet before, please do that on Thursday’s during our regular practice times. The banquet is a great time for us to recognize your wrestlers and their achievements throughout the season.
Please keep connected with us through Facebook and our Remind app. We will post camp opportunities throughout the season. We look forward to next season and hope that you will join us again.
Thank you for all of your support,
OYW Wrestling Board
