    Sportsmanship

    Sportsmanship is expected by EVERYONE at tournaments and practices. If we experience a problem with your child’s behavior at practice they will be asked to leave. This rule applies to parents as well.

    Respect

    Please be respectful to the club coaches when they are instructing the wrestlers during practice. Children can be distracted very easily without extra noise from parents or siblings during this time.

    Shoes

    Please have your child wear tennis shoes to practice and change into wrestling shoes at practice. DO NOT WEAR WRESTLING SHOES OUTSIDE. MORE IMPORTANTLY, NO STREET SHOES ON THE WRESTLING MATS! If you do not posses wrestling shoes there is some available for checkout.

    Shower

    It is important that your child shower after each practice to reduce the risk of ringworm. RIngworm is a skin fungal infection, no more than athlete’s foot. The mats are cleaned daily, but it can still occur. If you are not sure about a skin infection ask a coach.

    Tournaments are a fantastic way for your child to measure how well they are doing, build confidence, have fun, and earn recognition. Please have your wrestler wear our club singlets at tournaments. BWA will sponsor two tournaments a month. Tournaments will be chosen by the BWA committee. Tournaments sponsors will be posted one month in advance on this website. Click to view our resources page that has links to other tournament sites. Links to more tournaments.
