Starting on Tuesday, November 26th:
Group B Tuesday practice schedule is being changed to be from 6:00pm – 7:30pm.
Group C will still be from 6:45 – 8:15 in the main Gym. (rolling out 1 mat.)
On Tuesdays, we have been trying to combine practices for Groups B and C in the large gym at the Junior High. Our primary goal in setting this up has been to give some wrestlers a more diverse experience with a larger group of wrestling partners. While there have been a few able to take advantage of this, it hasn’t worked out as well as we had thought it might. We have discovered that setting up and tearing down both mats is a very time consuming process and it is not only detracting from our practice experience but it is causing a lot of people to have to stick around late on a school night.
As a result we are going to adjust the process to make things simpler (using just one mat in the gym), but still leave some opportunity for ‘cross group’ wrestling.
On Tuesdays, group B practice will start at 6:00pm in the Junior High Wrestling room. Group C practice will begin at6:45 in the main Gym. (Group C guys will be rolling the mat out.) Group B wrestlers will then move to the gym for live wrestling, and group C will take over in the wrestling room. Any group B wrestlers who want to get some extra practice in are free to stay for part or all of the group C practice.
Group B (we will need 1 or 2 dads to stick around and help,) will be responsible for rolling the mat in the gym back up at 7:30. This means that no one group (and especially not both groups) will be eating up a substantial amount of time rolling out/up mats.
We apologize for the confusion caused by the change in schedule, but we feel this is a better way for us to have more focused practices, and still give anyone who wants to wrestle with guys from the other group a chance to do so.
Any questions can be directed to Brian Petras or Dave Dolan. Thank you.
