Welcome to the Dundee Highlanders Wresting Team,

We are looking forward to being back on the mat for the 2021/2022 season. Whether you are a wrestling veteran, rookie, or just trying it out, our goal is that each wrestler is provided the incentive to fulfill their own needs and goals and be an example for the youth in the community.

We ask that every wrestler arrive to practice ready to work hard and learn. In doing this we grow together as a team and work towards becoming stronger more responsible young athletes. As a Highlander you are asked to be a respectful and a responsible athlete that upholds the reputation and standards of the program.

Practice will begin on Tuesday, November 9th and will run on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays from 6:30-8:00 PM.   After the first two weeks, we may slightly alter the schedule to ensure we are providing the appropriate level of training for the wrestlers.  

Wrestlers should enter the building at the Dundee Crown Athletic Entrance which is located on the Southeast side of the building. We will have someone at the entrance to direct you to the wrestling room, which is located on the second floor of the building. Masks will be required to be worn when entering and exiting the building. Parents will be allowed in the room for the first week. After that we ask that you drop off your wrestler or wait outside of the room (Please note that parents will need to be masked while inside the building). There are NO street shoes allowed in the wrestling room. Parents and wrestlers should remove shoes before entering the room.

Wrestlers should wear athletic shorts and t-shirts for practice.  Wrestling shoes and headgear will be required for all wrestlers after the two-week trial. We do have some wrestling shoes available for practice. These are on a first come first serve basis. Wrestlers can wrestle in socks until then.

After the two-week trial, all wrestlers will be required to be registered through the Dundee Highlanders program and hold a USA wrestling card. Registration is $150 is available at www.dundeehighlanders.com and the USA wrestling card can be obtained through www.usawmembership.com and is $55.

The Dundee Highlanders are committed to maintain a clean and healthy environment for our athletes. Skin diseases such as ring worm and impetigo are a very serious part of wrestling, and we feel obligated to let you know that this is a possibility. The mats are cleaned before every practice, and it is up to you as wrestlers and parents/(guardians) of wrestlers to make sure you are clean. Any open wounds and sores should be neatly covered or wrapped, and nails should be cut.  Wrestling shoes should be put on and only worn in the room.  If you do not have wrestling shoes, please make sure your wrestler is in clean socks.  Wrestlers should shower after every practice with antibacterial soap and wash clothes before wearing again.

We will be participating in tournaments this season. Tournaments are not mandatory to participate in, however we do encourage our wrestlers to try it out once they feel comfortable. A schedule will be posted online soon. Tournaments typically run-on Sunday’s and occasionally Saturdays. Tuesday, November 15th we ask that all parents regardless of registration status meet in the wrestling room at 7:45 for a brief parent meeting where we will discuss tournaments in more depth.

We look forward to an exciting season and please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Regards,

Dundee Highlanders Wrestling Coaches
