AWC Parents:

SKIN-

We are hearing of some skin issues, please make sure your wrestler is bathing immediately after practice using lots of soap and water! We do not want to spread skin issues to our HS kids or vice versa!

SKIN ISSUE – Please follow these few simple steps to help us eliminate, or at least greatly reduce, the possibility of skin disease and the spreading of such:

1.Parents you should be checking your kids skin and scalp on a regular basis (daily). If you see any marks on the your child's skin you need to let our club coaches know ASAP.

2.Wash your child's work out gear every night after practice in HOT water.

3.Use antiseptic wipe to wash down the bottoms of your child's wrestling shoes and their entire headgear on a regular basis (daily would be preferred but at least a few times a week)

4.If you find any spot that may potentially be suspicious let's assume it is some type of skin disease. Let us know about it and our coaches will determine that appropriate course of action.

5.Please do not take this e-mail lightly. We need ALL of you to follow the above steps to ensure our wrestlers stay healthy and are able to compete.

If you have any questions please contact me or any of our great board members and coaches.

Please follow through if you sign your child up as this can cause lots of headaches and extra work for those putting it together. Once our list is full, we WILL NOT take any more kids.We have been graciously invited by our friends at the Johnston Wrestling Club (JWC) for some wrestling opportunities over Christmas break.

Our intention is to have K-2nd grade from 10am-12pm, and 3rd-7th grade from 12pm-2pm. Some matches could take place after 12pm if matches ups work out. This is not a tournament, not a dual, just matches with AWC kids and JWC kids. JWC has given us a listing of their kids who have shown interest in having matches with our club. Things to remember when signing your kid up for this. This is for kids in K-7th grade.Please make sure your wrestler is the same grade or a grade above or a grade below. Please make sure your wrestler is within 3 lbs ( above or below the link) you sign up for. Example: My Calvin is in 2nd grade and weighs 58 lbs. I could sign him up for a link from a range of 55 to 61 lbs and 1st grade or 3rd grade. Please enter your wrestlers name, their current weight and their current grade.Please DO NOT sign your wrestler up more than ONCE. If there are more opportunities for other kids, JWC will match them up. Our intention is to have 1-2 matches for each of the kids who sign up. Deadline to sign up is Wednesday, December 20th @ 5pm
