There are just two weeks left of the AAU wrestling schedule! This means that our wrestlers have just two weeks of practice to prepare for the final AAU tournament of the season, the AAU State Tournament. Let’s hit it hard and represent the Spartan Wrestling Club well!
We have a normal practice schedule this week.
Minis: Monday/Wednesday 5:30-6:45
Juniors: Tuesday/Thursday 6-8
If you wanted to sign up for this weekend’s Fox tournament but didn’t, we are accepting additional entries up until the end of Minis practice at 6:45 this evening. This is the one tournament of the year where everyone medals, so if your little one is overdue for a happy car ride home, this one can be a confidence booster.
The deadline for AAU State is Thursday at the end of practice. Don’t forget to 1) select a weight class, 2) choose Blue or Gold division (or both since they are on separate days), and 3) supply seeding information (Blue division only). If you change your mind on weight class, I can change it at no charge prior to 6 pm Monday. Seeding information can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The seeding meeting for AAU State will be 7-8:30 pm, Wednesday, Feb. 21 at St Charles West. We will need volunteers to represent the Spartans at each age division. Please let me know if you will attend so we can get you seeding information.
After the AAU State Tournament, the season concludes for Minis and those Junior Spartans who do not plan to participate in the USA State series. If your wrestler plans on competing in the USA series for the first time this year, please email LeAnn and let her know.
The FHC Spartan wrestling team finished third at districts over the weekend and qualified eight wrestlers for the high school state tournament in Columbia this weekend. They are hoping to see a lot of fans there, so please come cheer them on if you are able! It is a great and inspiring experience for young wrestlers.
Need an extra Spartan T-shirt for yourself or a family member? We have a limited supply for just $10 each. See me at Minis practice tonight (at the end) or at Juniors practice Tuesday or Thursday. No holds, please.
Thanks, and have a great week!
