We are happy to announce that Bertha Kennedy Catholic School will start up our wrestling team coached by parent, Tanner Wilson, on Nov. 25th. This letter is to provide you with information on the upcoming wrestling season at BK for students in Grades 4-6.
Wednesday, Nov. 20 @ 3:30-4:30 - 1st practice for wrestlers
4:30-5:00pm - Parent and athlete meeting
Our practices will be on Wednesdays from 3:30-5:00 and on Friday mornings from 8:00 - 8:45 am, focusing on conditioning and skills.
If your child is unable to make a practice, please let Coach Wilson know a few days in advance by leaving a message at 780-458-6101.
Additional info about local wrestling dual/tri meets and upcoming tournaments will be shared as information becomes available. It is our goal to try to provide a positive, fun experience for all. Competition is not compulsory, but strongly encouraged. The wrestling club is for students who would like to learn how to compete in tournaments, however, if your child is only wishing to learn wrestling skills, please speak directly to Coach Wilson.
