									            BROOKWOOD YOUTH WRESTLING



Parents,

       Welcome to the Brookwood Wrestling Family. Wrestling is an awesome sport that
offers pure fun, individual challenges, confidence building, and develops great physical
conditioning. As wrestlers gain experience, technique becomes more complex and often
correlates to high academic performance. Wrestling also teaches young men how to apply
discipline, dedication, and determination into their daily lives. It is these values that our
coaches will emphasize each day while working with your student athlete.
       Our Brookwood Community School Wrestling class serves as a feeder program to our
High School Wrestling Team. However, what our class does outside of the BHS practice
room is not affiliated with the Brookwood Community School. Competitions we attend
outside of our community school class are sanctioned through USA wrestling. USA
Wrestling is the premier national organization for youth wrestling in the United States and
provides supplemental insurance to all USA wrestling members. Competitions are on a pay
as you play basis. To be eligible to compete at USA wrestling competitions parents will have
to purchase a USA Wrestling card for their wrestler.
       It is our coaching staff’s goal to teach your child how to be the best wrestler they can
be. Our coaching staff believes it is important to provide you and your child with the
complete wrestling experience by participating in competitive schedule outside of our
practice room. Placing the skills learned in our practice room to a test will provide your
athlete every opportunity to develop properly as wrestler. We believe that if we did not offer
this opportunity to you and your wrestler it would be a disservice to our participants
       Our staff does provide a competition schedule that we encourage all of our wrestlers
to attend. USA wrestling does offer more competitions throughout the state of GA, and you
are free to attend any event you wish. However, our coaches will only be at the ones we
have on our schedule. We encourage you and your wrestler to register through USA
wrestling and attend each of the events on our schedule.
       We will communicate to you weekly via –email with news and events. If you are not
receiving e-mails please be sure to notify your coach to be added to our e-mail list. Inside
this packet you will find a parent/wrestler contact form, competition schedule, a day to day
calendar, and resources page. We look forward to working with you and your child. If you
have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
                                                                        Sincerely,
