Parents, I’m excited about the upcoming start of the season! With everything that’s been cancelled or postponed, I’m very happy the GHSA has decided to proceed with a very normal looking wrestling season! I know there’s a lot to this email, but I wanted to get all of this out to you so you can read over and have questions ready for our 10/7 Zoom Meeting.
Please mark your calendars!! Wednesday Oct 7th at 7:15 PM All interested wrestlers and 1 parent must attend. Meeting should last about an hour and cover the start of the 2020-21 season. Registration info, schedule, physicals, equipment, optional spiritwear orders, and daily practice procedures will be discussed. I WILL SEND A ZOOM LINK BY EMAIL AND REMIND TEXT BY OCTOBER 4.
Registration Link: https://lassiterwrestling.sportngin.com/register/form/666955307 PLEASE REGISTER ASAP
Physicals: All athletes must have updated physicals on file. If you played a fall sport, you’re ok. If not, please see the 2 attachments.
Required Equipment: Wrestling shoes, headgear (mandatory at every practice), mouthpiece covering top/bottom of braces (suggested for all though). A player pack consisting of 1 tshirt/1 short will be provided with registration. Extra player packs available for purchase for $20. Sweats and hoods are not permitted, but compression shirts/pants can be worn under player uniform. TSLA on Amazon makes excellent/inexpensive compression gear: https://www.amazon.com/stores/TSLA/page/17388834-C238-4B82-8A25-0BF6A664FA2D?ref_=ast_bln
*** Until further notice, I won’t be doing daily team laundry***
Competition Gear: Each wrestler will be given a warmup top/warmup bottom that they will keep and be responsible for and then return at the conclusion of their season. Singlets will be given out on match day and collected at the end of that day.
Rudis Spiritwear Info: Order form is attached. Please complete and return form and check made to LWBC (Lassiter Wrestling Booster Club) to Coach Brickley no later than October 14. Please DO NOT order directly from Rudis. All orders must go through the booster club.
Hydration: Each wrestler will need their own water bottle for practices and meets. No team coolers will be taken on trips until further notice.
Weight Certification: The GHSA has just sent out info. I will schedule the test as soon as I can and get info out.
Transportation: More info will come, but as of right now, we will be taking buses to all of our away events. A maximum of 24 people including managers and coaches can be on a bus.
Fundraising: This is something I really hate discussing, but with the state of things due to Covid, we could use help. I have put together a really modest budget for the year. Every wrestling need will be taken care of for the athletes. Anything above and beyond though, is still pending. We usually run the Trojan Invitational opening weekend, 22 schools were coming this year! With the season pushed back 2 weeks, we lost that tournament and with it, about $8,000-9,000. I believe we did secure a Team GA kid’s tournament, but those aren’t always 100% reliable. We have discussed ways to continue the very successful Texas Hold Em’ tournament this year, but again, with Covid, we’re aren’t 100% that it will happen. Now, more than ever, team dues, OurFund, sponsorship, donations, and support are at a prime. I welcome any ideas!
