Practice Cancelled – Jan 21st

The school district has cancelled all after school activities due the possible bad weather this evening.

Schedule for the week of Jan 19th

Practice is CANCELLED tonight as school is closed.

Picture night tomorrow (Tuesday) at the Walsh Gym (Upper gym). Wear your wrestling shoes, singlet, and team issued sweats. This will take place in the Walsh Gym (upper gym near main office). 7 and 8 year olds are to report at 6:30 pm. 4,5,& 6 yr olds are to report at 6:45 pm. Everyone else please be at the gym by 7 pm for the group photo. Once the group photo is done the remainder of the kids will get their individual photos taken.. There will NOT be practice after pictures.

Regular practice schedule Wednesday and Thursday.

There is NOT a Grapevine match this weekend. Inasmuch, the attached tournament is an option and voluntary. It is NOT a team paid event but it is relatively inexpensive and offers a ton of wrestling (4-5 matches) which is a great chance to grow and learn in a very short time period.

There will be plenty of West coaches on hand. If you are interested in attending the tournament you need to register online; see attached registration for instructions. If you’re not sure what your wrestler weighs, email coach Paul and he will let you know.

The tournament is in Bloomsburg PA. A few will be traveling up the night before. Hotels are pretty reasonable in the area. Travel is at your discretion but I’d pay particular attention to the Sunday start time when making your plans.

Feel free to find another “local” tournament or just take the weekend off.


Events This Sunday – Jan 18th

There are two events this Sunday the 18th.

The Grapevine is at Maple Shade. Check in is at 8:30am for all wrestlers.

Maple Shade High School
180 Frederick Avenue
Maple Shade Township, NJ 08052

We also have the Highland Jr Tournament (a NON team paid tournament) as well. We will hold a satellite weigh-in at West this Wednesday 1/14 & Thursday 1/15 after each practice (7:45pm). You should not complete the registration for this one as we will complete one spreadsheet with all of the wrestlers attending and cut one check to Highland. The cost is $20. Either cash or make the check payable to WestSide Wrestling, at our weigh-in. This should be a pretty tough tournament.

Highland Regional High School
450 Erial Road
Blackwood, NJ 08012

NOTE: You are just picking between our Grapevine and the Highland tournament; we’ll have coaches at both.
