Note: Please have your child wear other shoes to practice and change into their wrestling shoes after arriving.  We need to keep the mats as clean as possible. 
 

PRACTICE ATTIRE:  Wrestlers should wear fitted t-shirts and shorts to practice.  Do not wear loose or baggy clothing.  Please note that it is extremely hot in the wrestling room.  


WATER BOTTLE:  Please send a large water bottle with your child to practice.  We do not want to send wrestlers to the hallways to use the water fountains.  There will be frequent water breaks during practice.      


ASSISTANT COACHES:  CYA Wrestling is always looking for more assistant coaches.  Even if you have no experience with wrestling, we can use your help in keeping the kids organized.  If you are interested in officially helping out with the program, please email me at wrestling@chantillyouth.org.
