Welcome to 2018-19 Central Chargers Wrestling!
School starts August 15!
All physicals, Medical History, and Online Paperwork must be on file with our trainers by Friday. We start practice Monday. Don't wait until Friday to turn this in as often paperwork is incomplete. We start taking grades on Monday. Students not ready on Monday will receive a zero for the day.
Morning Practice is 8 am - 8:55 am. Roll-call happens in the Locker room at 7:50 am. We start at 8 am sharp. That means shoes on and ready to go.
Afternoon practice is 55 minutes. We start when everybody is in the room, so hustle down after 4th period. The earlier we start, the earlier we end. Expect practice to end around 4 pm.
The Big 25
The Big 25 is 25 Technique sessions beginning Tuesday August 21st ending on Thanksgiving Break. The technique learned in these sessions is invaluable. We can not cover the depth of technique in the Big 25 in the course of regular practice. The Big 25 is for athletes in both 1st and 5th period. We start at 7 am sharp - 8 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Locker rooms are open at 6:45 am.
Preseason Nationals in Des Moines, Iowa is on October 27th for boys and October 28th for girls, elementary and middle school athletes. We will organize a trip. Weigh ins for boys is on Friday evening. Weigh-ins for second group is Saturday evening. The best high school wrestling happens at these national tournaments, and this is where college coaches do their recruiting. There are several developmental tournaments that happen in the preseason and that is good for all of us, but we have several that are good enough to compete in the showcase tournaments.
Here is a list of the showcase tournaments I recommend to turn a college coaches head.
1) Preseason Tournaments Preseason Nationals in Des Moines, Iowa or Super 32 in North Carolina
2) Post Season Post Season Nationals (Boys) - Iowa Post Season Nationals (Girls) - Oklahoma City NHSCA Nationals - Virginia Beach
3) Freestyle/Greco Regionals - Southern Plains in Dodge City, Kansas Nationals - Fargo North Dakota Team Texas Dual Team
Here is a list of developmental pre-season tournaments that are good for all of our athletes
