Bowie Wrestling Parents and Family:
First and foremost welcome to the Bowie Wrestling Family. I am the Head Coach of the wrestling program and if you have any questions please contact me. For anymore questions on schedules, wrestling forms or overall question you can also refer to our website bowiewrestling.org.
I am extremely honored to have your kid in our wrestling program and I know many of you are asking how can we help the program. Wrestling--Boys Varsity, Girls Varsity and JV-- travel a great deal all over the state and we as a program must generate the funds to pay for these trips. Varsity Boys will have 2 trips to Dallas, Varsity Girls will have 1 trip to Dallas and Bryan and JV will have a trip to Dallas and Bryan. Our fundraising mainly consists of running UT concessions and 2 tournaments. Our first fundraising tournament is also our first wrestling tournament of the year. It is Capital Classic at DELCO. Wrestlers know it's mandatory for all wrestlers to work both days Friday and Saturday of the tournament. (All wrestlers will be out of school all day on Friday. JV will wrestle Friday and Varsity Boys and Girls will work. Then on Saturday Varsity Boys and Girls will wrestle while JV works.) As for the parents our booster club- led by the President Sheila Moreno firstname.lastname@example.org
- has a sign-up time for parents to sign in to work in 3 hour shifts. We need help from the parents to run mat tables, run the main table of the tournament, bout tree and hospitality. The profit of this tournament goes straight to the wrestling team. ITS FOR THE KIDS. We need all time slots filled in order for the tournament to run smoothly and quickly. The link to sign up is http://www2.mysignup.com/cgi-bin/view.cgi?datafile=capitalclassic2013
. I know that some or most of you have no clue what a wrestling tournament looks like let alone how to run a table. Do not worry the booster club, wrestlers and I
will teach and train you on how to run a table or any other job you are assigned to when you report to work your shift. We --wrestlers, coaches and booster club-truly appreciate all the help you as parents can provide for the wrestling program.
The times for the tournament are Friday wrestling will begin at 12 --we would like the early shift to be there at 11:30 am--and should end around 7 pm. Saturday wrestling begin at 9:00 am--early shift workers please report at 8:30 am-- and should end at 6 pm. However we are asking that each parent work a 3 hour shift but if you want to work more you can gladly do so.
As for transportation of wrestlers, all wrestlers will report to Bowie at normal school time and we will board school buses to DELCO at 9:00 am. I will then take back all wrestlers to school Friday after the JV tournament. Saturday, varsity boys and Girls will report to Bowie at 6:15. We will travel to DELCO at 6:30. JV wrestlers can either meet us at Bowie at 6:15 or they can meet at DELCO at 8:30.
Remember it's mandatory for all wrestlers to work both days.
Any more questions please feel free to contact me. Once again, I am honored your son or daughter has taking an interest in the sport of wrestling and we look forward on having a great tournament and a great year.
