In hopes to keep wrestlers, parents, alumni, and fans aware of the massive rule changes for the 2020-2021 season, we have created a central hub to keep everyone informed. Plan on this page being updated regularly, and often. Changes this season will be hourly, if not daily. We will do our best to educate everyone to the best of our knowledge.
PREFACE: MAJOR CHANGES
Ruling from the MHSAA:
STEP ONE: SIGN UP
It's important that we have up to date information on everyone. If you haven't already, please fill out this form. This will help determine our pods that we will be using to run our practices.
STEP TWO: FINAL FORMS
This is an absolute must, Final Forms must be completed in its entirety and insurance and physicals turned in. This how we will be handling our contact tracing, so wrestlers cannot step on the mat without this completed.
STEP THREE: PRE-SEASON
Pre-season begins Nov. 2 at 3:00pm-4:00pm. We will meet at the high school track between the north and south building. These will not be in pods, but expect cold weather and to remain socially distant. The schedule thus far:
11.04.20 3:15pm-4:15pm (w/ National Guard)
11.09.20 3:15pm-4:15pm (w/ USAF)
11.13.20 3:15pm-5:00pm (US Army/moving mats)
STEP FOUR: GEAR
Team and fan stores are currently open. It will reopen for the second semester as well.
STEP FIVE: PRACTICE
High School Practices will take place Monday-Friday from 3:30pm-5:55pm. Each wrestler will report to the wrestling room where outside the door (dressed in running/wrestling shoes and masks) they will be greeted by coaching staff. Coaches will check temperatures, answer all the questions on Final Forms, and get their weight checked. All information will be recorded manually via paper and entered into Final Forms or will entered into Final Forms via Chromebook. Once all has been recorded, wrestlers may enter the wrestling room.
4 groups/pods of 16 wrestlers (+1 Coach)
Practice will begin at 3:30pm. All wrestlers will meet on the track outside the room and remain socially distanced for team pre-talk. Pods will then break out into 3-4 different stations:
