Youth wrestling to begin
The Triple Threat Golden Tornadoe’s are seeking members for the new youth wrestling club.
This independent youth wrestling club is now forming which will educate and train future wrestlers in the sport. The club intends to put emphasis on teaching the basics of Folkstyle wrestling to interested students, along with wrestling techniques and mental attitude.
The club will be accepting athletes that are in the first grade to the sixth grade, no experience necessary.
The cost for the season will be $45 per athlete; $75 for two athletes in the same family; and $100 for three members of the same family.
Practices will be held at the James Willison Family Center (old SHS high school gym) in Sistersville, with the first practice scheduled for Nov. 2 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The second practice will be held on Nov. 4 from 7-8:30 p.m.
The entry fee will include practice gear of T-shirts and shorts.
Wrestlers and parents need to note: only wrestling shoes or socks will be worn on the mats, and knee pads and/or other wrestling gear is optional.
An informative meeting for parents will be held on Oct. 25 at the Willison Center at 6:30 p.m.
This first season is expected to last until the end of March.
Sign-up sheets are located in the following locations: the Sistersville City Building, BP Par-Mar, The Fort and Myers Funeral Home in Sistersville; the BP Par-Mar, NSide Out, Marathon Gas Station, Lucy’s, Kristy’s Hair Magic, in Middlebourne; and at the Marathon Gas Station in Paden City.
