Please fill out the form using the link below. (All 6th graders will be tested) To take the CogAT, students should already have at least 1 score of 95th percentile or higher on the MAP in reading and/or math.

WHO: Students 1st-6th grade, regardless of size or experience
WHAT: Wrestling is a disciplined sport that instills good sportsmanship and builds confidence. Instruction will consist of teaching basic wrestling moves, drilling, and live wrestling. There are many weight classes, so you compete against others your own size and age.
WHERE: Sycamore High School Wrestling Room. Park on the bus ramp and enter stairs near the pool.
COST: The cost for participation is $80, plus 2 volunteer hours (see below). Fee includes shorts and t-shirt, insurance, and entry into two tournaments (see below). Additional tournaments at an average of $15 each are encouraged but not required.
PRACTICE: Practice will be Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:00-7:00. Additional practice time may be added, if needed, based on the level of the wrestlers.
TOURNAMENTS: Tournament participation is optional. The cost includes entry into the Sycamore Invitational, as well as the City tournament; however, participation in the city tournament needs to be approved by the head coach. The coaches will detail a schedule of preferred tournaments for the season.
VOLUNTEER HOURS: Each family is asked to provide 2 hours of time volunteering for the wrestling program. We have many opportunities for parents to get these hours, such as working a table at our youth, junior high, or high school tournaments, concessions, helping in practice, or administrative duties. In lieu of these hours, parents may also opt to pay an additional $50 fee.
EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Shoes (wrestling or gym), gym shorts and a t-shirt. Headgear recommended.
