I hope everyone had a great weekend! The next AAU tournament on the schedule is the Ozark District Tournament, which is the second leg of the bracketed AAU Triple Crown series. Here is the link to the flier:
This tournament will be held on February 13 and 14 at Northwest High School in House Springs. See the flier to see which day your child's age group will compete.
Like with the Missouri Challenge, you select the weight class for your child when you register, and you must attend the weigh-in of your choice (either Friday night or before your session). See the flier for details.
Entries must be turned in via Venmo or at practice by Tuesday, February 9. No late entries, please, and no changing of weight classes after that date.
You may also start thinking about whether your child will continue with wrestling into March in order to compete in the USA state series. This consists of districts in Jackson, MO on Feb. 27, regionals in Mexico, MO on March 6, and a state tournament that will be held at the Hyvee Arena in Kansas City on March 13. The age groups are different from AAU, and wrestlers must be at least 7 as of January 1, 2021 to compete. Our club covers the cost of a USA card for any Junior Spartans who wish to compete, but mini-Spartans (those who are old enough) must purchase a USA card at an additional cost. Hotel stays are generally necessary, and those who wish to participate are committing to compete for the entire series should they qualify. Fliers are not yet available, but we will share the links when they have been released. Separate state tournaments for 6 & Under wrestlers, rookies and girls are also offered; however, we do not send coaches to these events. For more information, please visit MissouriUSAwrestling.org.
Normal Tues. / Thurs. practice schedule this week. Have a great week!
