We have created a program for wrestlers to earn money for team gear such as shirts, shorts and jackets. This year we are extending the program to help pay for singlets and tournament costs.
Here is how it works; Each wrestler is required to sell ten (10) raffle calendars. This offsets any signup costs other than the Boys and Girls Club membership. With the sale of ten (10) calendars, each wrestler will receive one (1) team jersey, one (1) pair of team shorts and one (1) team jacket. With the sale of ten (10) calendars each wrestler will contribute the remaining $35.00 towards our "Pay Their Way" scholarship fund. Our scholarship fund was created to help less fortunate kids pay for tournaments and/or gear. Our fund has also been used in the past to sponsor children for Christmas and for families in need.
Here is the take-down:
Team Shirt: $15
Team Shorts: $15
Team Jacket: $35
Pay Their Way Scholarship Fund: $35
Note: If any given wrestler sells more than 15 Raffle Calendars, the extra money will be used for their tournament registration cost.
Every year we have two booths at Derry Fest, one for information
and the other for our travel mats! I would like to see everyone there at
some point during the day. Usually we hand out our raffle calendars to
wrestlers so they get a head start selling them! Please let me know who can go
ASAP. We are also looking for items to raffle off that day! Gift cards or
baskets!!! Please and thank you for your help, your help will be a huge
contributing factor to another successful season!
We will be holding our 2015-2016 awards banquet Wednesday April 20th, 2016 6:30-8:00pm in the bingo hall at the Boys & Girls Club. We will be giving out 8 special awards to eight K-8th grade kids that stood out this year! Please RSVP ASAP as is this Wednesday. We have had a scheduling issue with everyone's spring sports so we just need to go for a date where I can get the coaches there!! So please let me know if you will or will not be able to attend and what you are bringing.
I would like to get a list of kids that will be wrestling this next season over the summer! We will be teaching Freestyle wrestling at a competitive level. Practices will be 1-2 days a week. Tournaments are Saturdays and Sundays in Concord NH, VT and MA. This is a K-12 program, though not every kid is cut out for Freestyle wrestling as it can be tough! We could use the following weights, give or take: 50s 60s 70s 140s 150s 160s. Please let me know if you are interested.
