Predator Wrestling 2017-2018
We are a small organization with approximately 50 wrestlers, therefore, everyone must contribute to ensure a successful and fun filled season. There will be a volunteer/singlet deposit in the form of a $100 undated check to be returned if the family volunteers for the minimum amount of time required and the singlet is returned at the end of the season intact. Volunteer time may include, concession help, table help at home matches, and there are various other activities requiring volunteers. All families will be required to participate in the volunteer program. There will be a volunteer schedule made out prior to our first HOME meet in early January.
In addition to the normal registration fee of $185 (all inclusive) you will be required to purchase wrestling shoes ($30+) and headgear ($30+) from a sporting goods store of your choice (Sports Authority or Dick’s carries them). We will provide a wrestling singlet as stated above for use in our matches, and a Predator T-shirt that the wrestler can keep.
Your wrestling fee is “all inclusive” (no other fees required for season including tournaments that we enter as a team). Most tournaments are held in the month of December in preparation of the regular season which starts in early January. There will be tournaments for all including beginner and experienced. Participation in pre-season tournaments is not required, but highly recommended to get the kids accustomed to wrestling a match or to just “knock the rust off”. There are additional tournaments during the season as well including the Maryland State Youth Championships, and MMWL Championships.
Our wrestling practices will start in November. The kids are typically broken into squads based on level of experience, weight, and age. Squads practice twice a week Monday thru Friday in the evenings from 6-8 pm. For the 2017-2018 season, practices will be held at the Oakdale High School Wrestling room.
We will be holding a parents only meeting in early November to welcome you, introduce you to the coaching staff, explain the volunteer program, share our wrestling philosophy and provide any other information that you may require.
The Predators wrestle in the Mid-Maryland Wrestling League (MMWL). The MMWL is a very competitive recreational league consisting of nearly 700 wrestlers from 15 Maryland only teams – all within a 25 mile radius of Frederick.
Meets start in January. All MMWL meets are held on Sundays. Each MMWL meet lasts about 4 hours. Home matches require setting up and taking down of mats and equipment, table help, concession help, and clean up, and away matches require travel time plus the 3 to 4 hours of wrestling time. All wrestlers will wrestle a minimum of 2 matches and as many as 4-5 matches. The season concludes in early March with the league championship tournament.
