We’ve tried to answer the most common questions that we have seen over the first couple weeks of registrations. Feel free to reach out via the contact form, email address, or phone number if your question is not answered below or if you would like additional information.
How do I register?
You can register your child by clicking the registration link in the above menu. This will take you to our TeamSnap registration site where you can complete the registration process.
What ages can participate?
Anyone between 4 – 14 years of age.
When and where are practices?
After registration closes, the board will finalize practice days for each of the groups.
All wrestling practices will be held at Elkhorn High School at 1401 Veterans Dr. Elkhorn, NE 68022.
All supplemental strength and conditioning practices will be held at Elkhorn Training Camp at 715 N. 210th St. Elkhorn, NE 68022
Our current proposed practice days will be as follows:
Group #1 will practice in the wrestling room on Monday and Thursdays. They will have supplemental training on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.
Group #2 will practice in the wrestling room on Tuesday and Fridays. They will have supplemental training on Wednesday evening and Saturday mornings.
Group #3 will practice in the wrestling room on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. No supplemental trainings.
NOTE: These are proposed at this time. Practice days/times/locations will be finalized once registration has ended.
What is the cost?
Registration cost for the 2019-20 year will be $200. For 7 & under, registration includes: 2 practice shirts, 1 tournament shirt, 2 practices per week, and 3 tournaments that the wrestling club will pay registration fees for. For 8 & above, registration includes: 2 practice shirts, 1 tournament shirt, and 4 practices per week (2 wrestling room & 2 strength & conditioning).
Do I need to purchase additional gear?
Wrestling shoes will be required on the mats and tournaments. You can purchase shoes via our online team store (link below) or any local sports store. Your child will also need a wrestling singlet that can be purchased or rented through the club via the registration process. Headgear is optional for local youth competitions. However, it will be required if you participate in state or national tournaments.
How do I know what practice group my child will be in?
After registration closes, the board will finalize practice groups and you will be notified at that time.
I would like to become a volunteer coach – Who do I contact?
We welcome any and all individuals that would like to volunteer as a coach assisting kids in practice or tournaments as needed. During the registration process, there is a section that will ask if you are interested in volunteering. If you are unsure at the time of registration, but decide it looks like so much fun, feel free to reach out to one of the head coaches during a practice to express interest.
Who will be my child’s coach?
We have a great group of volunteer coaches on staff that will assist in providing your child the skills required to wrestle. Based on feedback we have received in previous years, a few coaches will rotate through the practice groups so kids and coaches can become familiar with one another. Look for coaching profiles to show up soon as a new feature of the website!
