We will use the high school wrestling room for all of our practices. Our room has terrible acoustics, so we will not have the ability for other kids to play or make much noise on the sidelines in the room. Please help us instruct the young wrestlers by helping us police this during practice.

We will have many opportunities to attend matches on the weekends. We highly recommend it, we have a lot of fun and it gives the kids an opportunity to try moves they have learned against kids in a real situation. We will ask that the entire team attends a few set matches during the season. Most matches are in the Portland metro area and are free to enter as we are a member of the Metro league. These require the USA Wrestling membership. The kids that progress in skills will attend some additional tournaments during the season.
We will provide Email updates at the start of each week for parents. In addition, we will post these updates on our facebook page. (Scappoose Wrestling)
Kids will be expected to attend a majority of practices. The techniques that are taught build off of each other week to week, missing practice puts the kids behind. This does not mean that we don’t know part of the season is during the holidays. Parents should check in with the Coaches to let them know of any upcoming absences.
High School Duals
For all home high school wrestling matches, we will all attend wearing our T-shirts and sit together as a team in the stands. We will also have some fun games for the kids during the dual meets. We will do a special event on TBD.
We will have one fundraiser (Raffle) towards the beginning of the season that will benefit the kids club. Our goal in the future is to have enough money to subsidize memberships and allow all kids to have gear packages and fund the ability to travel to tournaments. We will also be hosting a poker tournament/wrestling social date and time TBD.
