It is extremely important to get all wrestlers placed in the appropriate level of intensity and instruction, to do this the first two weeks of fall practice will be an evaluation period, these are not ‘Try-outs’. All kids will be placed in the best group for that individual. There are many factors that will are used to determine which group to place kids in, and it can be fluid throughout the seasons.
Location: We have traditionally practiced at Chatfield Sr. High, however beginning with the 2020 season we will be moving to our own facility at 9032 West Ken Caryl Avenue Suite B2 Littleton and will begin practices there as part of our fall season starting October 12th.
Preseason (Current) Practice Schedule:
Fall/Winter Practice Schedule (Begins October 19th)
All Brand new wrestlers are encouraged to wait until the week of Oct. 19th to begin. Returning Wrestlers may join at any point. Schedule will adjust to accommodate growth and ideal coaching groups.
Beginner: Our beginner group is for brand new wrestlers that have not been exposed to wrestling as well as returning wrestlers that still need some work on the foundation concepts needed to be successful in the Intermediate Group. Separating our beginners gives the coaches the ability to work more closely with these wrestlers to give them the time they need to work their way up to the intermediate group. Generally, new 4-7 year olds will remain in this group throughout the season. 8 year olds and up that start the season here will move up to intermediate mid-way through the season as they show they are ready.
Intermediate: The intermediate Group is the core of our club. These wrestlers will work on the foundation principles our coaches believe in, drill techniques, live wrestle and compete on the weekends. These wrestlers will have shown that they have the focus, demeanor and maturity to learn a technique and build on it from practice to practice. Generally, intermediate wrestlers have 1-4 years of wrestling experience and are working toward putting the techniques together. While tournaments are not required, competing regularly cuts the learning curve and teaches what the kids need to do to excel. Generally 2-5th Graders.
Advanced: Advanced wrestlers are kids that have the maturity, work ethic and focus to get better every day. This is a drill intensive class that takes their technique, conditioning and competition to the next level. The expectation of advanced wrestlers is to compete often and attend specific local and travel national level tournaments. Generally 6th-12th Graders, Exceptions for advanced 2nd-5th.
