This time of the year brings families and friends together but also brings many teams together in duals and tournaments. It’s always a good time to follow the successes and involvements of the individuals and their respective teams.
Our members have frequently asked questions that I’d like to address; this may help with your spring planning and competition opportunities.
Q: What is the difference between Cadet / Junior Training Team and the Cadet / Junior National Team?
The training team consists of wrestlers that apply to train together from March through May. The training team competes in national regional events in March and May.
The national teams consist of wrestlers that qualify to wrestle at the national tournament in Fargo.
Q: What is the cost to be on the training team?
The cost is $300; this must be paid as soon as you are notified of your acceptance to the team.
Q: How do I apply for the Cadet / Junior Training Team?
Fill out the Cadet/Junior Training Team application on the website under the coach’s link.
Q: What does the $300 cover for the Training Camp?
Entry into two National Regional events, hotel expenses at those events and at the practices.
Q: When are the training dates and locations this season?
Please remember that these training opportunities are open only to those that apply; there are limitations for numbers as space is a bit restrictive.
I’d encourage you to continue to visit the Federation website (www.wiwrestlingfederation.com), like / follow our Facebook Page and sign up soon - if you intend to participate. The dates for the national Team camp are pending..
Have a safe and joyful holiday.
Yours in Wrestling, Dave Black
