MS Youth Wrestling Program

Dear Parent(s):

     The Bellmont Youth Wrestling Program will begin after school on Monday, October 08.  All Bellmont, Northwest, St. Joe, St. Peter, Wyneken, and Zion boys in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades are eligible to compete.  Practices will be held in the high school wrestling room and children will be coached by the high school coaching staff and wrestlers.  This is a free program, but wrestlers must have a signed permission form in order to practice.  All boys will need clean gym shoes, shorts, and a t-shirt for practice.  If your child is unable to attend a practice, please inform a coach beforehand. 

     Participants may ride their normal bus to Bellmont Middle School and walk over to the high school for practices.  Coaches and wrestlers will be waiting to escort them into the wrestling room.  The wrestlers may use the locker facilities in the auxiliary gym.  Due to construction at NACS, wrestlers can be picked up at the north entrance of the high school near the tennis courts.  (Door N-15)   Please pick your child up from each practice promptly at 4:30 P.M.

     Once again, pictures will be taken this year on Tuesday, October 09 during practice.  Individual shots and team pictures (Bellmont, Northwest, and Parochial Schools) will be taken.  Picture packets will be sent home the practice before picture day.

     The Bellmont Youth Wrestling Tournament will be on Thursday, October 18 in the middle school main gym.  Every boy who has participated in the program is eligible to compete in the tournament.  We will attempt to fill the following weight classes:  55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 100, 105, 110, 115, 120, 130, Heavyweight.  However, if a class features too many wrestlers, the class may be broken down into separate divisions.  The top four wrestlers in each weight class will receive a ribbon and a BHS wrestling poster. Champions and runners-up will also receive a t-shirt.  Team scores will be kept this year as well.  Parochial schools’ points will be combined against Northwest’s and Bellmont’s teams.  Wrestlers will want to support their teammates in hopes of a team championship!!!  A team trophy will be awarded at the conclusion of the tournament.
