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.

We will take pictures the first part of practice. Approx first 20 minutes. Each wrestler will need a form filled out. We will have extra forms there each night. We will get individual pictures taken in the room you are practicing in and then take a group pictures when all individual pictures are done in the room as well. We will start practice right after the group pictures. Practice might go later due to pictures. Please make sure your wrestler is in their AWC CLUB shirt the night of your pictures. You get a memory mate for FREE with your wrestler's registration!
