Practices this week will be Monday & Wednesday 6-8 p.m. All wrestlers will practice together in the big room.  Our attention now turns towards preparing for the state series.  The majority of our 6U and Rookie wrestlers are typically done with their season after the Jeff City Novice tournament.  If you still plan to attend more tournaments from here on out, you are more than welcome to do so, but the focus of the practices will be on perfecting skills for these tournaments, not learning new skills. 
If you are done for the season, pretty please bring in your CLEAN singlet and exchange it for your deposit check. We will not cash any checks unless we do not receive your singlet by the end-of-season banquet, but we would very much prefer getting as many of them back as possible, because...
If your wrestler plans to go on to the state series, but does NOT have one of the newer style singlets (grey with gold & white tiger head and claw marks), we would like to exchange your older style singlet for the newer one if possible.  The more of the newer style singlets we get back, the easier we can make this happen.  Our goal is to have the entire team in the same singlet by Districts.  
Wrestling Shoes:
If you would like to start bringing back any wrestling shoes/gear you borrowed from the club, please do so!!  
Also, we have a former member who only wrestled for 2 weeks with brand new shoes and his grandmother is trying to sell them in anyone is interested.  They are boys size 9, she paid $75 for them and is asking $30 or best offer.
End-of-season Banquet:
Every year we finish off with club-wide banquet, typically around the 2nd week of April after things have wound down from the state tournament.  We will be sending out an invitation to all wrestlers via email about this banquet.  Please know that every wrestler from 6U - 14U is invited and we will recognize every wrestler that RSVPs, as well as have a potluck dinner, a video montage of season highlights, guest speakers, etc.  It is a great night--so even if your season is over, please try to make time for this event and continue to watch our emails for this.  
Additionally, if there is anyone who would like to coordinate the banquet, we would be very grateful!!  Our previous coordinator "graduated" out of our club. I also have a copy of the "sign-up genius" that we used to coordinate additional volunteers and can easily have a conversation with the person (or couple of people) who would take this over, but any and all help would be so, so appreciated!!

Columbia Wrestling Club (CWC) teaches 5 to 14 year-old youths (must be 5 years old as of November 14 and in Kindergarten) the sport of wrestling, with a focus on the fundamentals, sportsmanship, fun and teamwork of wrestling. CWC is dedicated to providing a positive wrestling experience for children in the Columbia, Missouri area. New wrestlers and experienced wrestlers are welcome to join.

One of the great things about wrestling is that it mirrors life. The life skills that kids can learn from wrestling can be applied to school and their everyday life, both as kids and as adults. Setting goals, visualizing success, working hard, persevering and overcoming obstacles in order to reach your goals -- this cycle repeats itself over and over in wrestling, and in life. Win or lose, if kids can learn these life skills during their time spent wrestling then it will have been a success for all involved.

The goal of the Columbia Wrestling Club is to help kids and their families develop a love and passion for the sport of wrestling. We want our families to have fun, enjoy practice and look forward to competition. Win or lose, the goal of CWC and our families should be the same -- have fun and do everything possible to help develop a passion for the sport of wrestling.

Kids develop at different levels and some pick up things a lot faster than others. Some of the best wrestlers that CWC has ever had did not start out that way, and some of our early success stories end up not even wrestling in high school. Once a kid becomes passionate about wrestling, or any other sport, a lot of really good things can happen. However, if the emphasis early on becomes too much about winning and kids are not having fun, they will never have the chance to develop the passion that is necessary to keep them interested. CWC has produced some outstanding young men and they all had fun and developed a passion for wrestling before they really experienced a lot of success.

We wrestle every Monday and Wednesday during the season UNLESS we have inclement weather or interference with MU's practices.  Parents will be notified of any changes in advance via e-mail and the website.  Practice is held at the Hearnes Field House, fourth floor wrestling room.
