Click Here for Registration Form. Print the registration form for your use. If you have more than one wrestler, we will need a registration form for each wrestler. Complete the registration form and bring it to one of the registration dates listed below. Please bring the intended athlete(s) with you to registration as we will weigh them for practice placement.
If you are presently involved in youth football and will not be done until Thanksgiving, or so please register on one of the dates above or we will not be able to order a T-shirt for your wrestler.
- Club Registration (includes club t-shirt and team photo): $150.00 per athlete (there is a sibling discount for more than one child)
- USA Wrestling Card*: $40.00
- Singlet Deposit**: $25.00
Someone registering for the first time will look at $215.00 to start. Those who already have their singlets will look at $190.00.
*All boys MUST have a USA Wrestling Card to practice in the gym. This is insurance for you and for the club. If you do not have a USA Wrestling Card (new to wrestling) we will collect the $40.00 and order your card and deliver it to you.
If you are returning, you may re-new your card on line, pay for it and show your 2015 USA Wrestling Card – OR – you may pay us and we will order your card with all the others.
Once again, you MUST have a USA Wrestling Card to practice with us.
** We will issue a singlet to each wrestler whether the wrestler goes to tournaments or not. Many of the younger wrestlers wear them to practice as their uniform. At the end of the season you may choose to keep your singlet for next year’s return or you may return the singlet and receive your $25.00 back. Third option is to return your singlet and make a $25.00 donation to the club.
Please make checks payable to the “Vacaville Wrestling Club” or bring cash. Sorry, we do not have one of those machine-things yet.
WRESTLERS WILL BE REGISTERED IN THE FOLLOWING GROUPS AND PRACTICES:
This year we will register the wrestlers by their birth year rather than their year in school. This will hopefully group the boys better and set their age groups with USA Wrestling. The youngest wrestler we will accept must be five-years-old in 2014 [whether born in January or December].
PEE WEE / ROOKIE: Birth year 2009. This wrestler is 5 now and will turn 6 in 2015. Pee Wee / Rookies will practice Monday and Wednesday from 6:30 to 7:15. This groups will be given instruction in basic wrestling: emphasis on balance – stance and motion, on using the body to push, on first contact. We do not stress tournaments and competition for the young wrestlers, but some may choose that option.
BANTAMS: Birth years 2007 – 2008. Will turn 7 or 8 in 2015. Younger and smaller Bantams may be placed with Pee Wee group to practice. Larger or older Bantams will practice on Monday and Wednesday from 7:30 to 8:15. We will separate the Monday-Wednesday groups first by age and then by size. Again the emphasis will be on balance – stance and motion, use of body and initiating contact with opponent. Once again, we do not stress tournaments and much competition for the younger wrestlers until they show more willingness for contact.
INTERMEDIATES: Birth years 2005 – 2006. Will turn 9 or 10 in 2015. This group will practice on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 to 8:00. More technique in stance, motion, attack skills – takedowns and pins will be given. Also wrestling positions feet, bottom, top. Much more emphasis on contact with tournaments and competition encouraged for those athletes who show readiness.
NOVICE – SCHOOL BOY: Birth years 2002 – 2004. This group will practice at Willis Jepson Junior High School on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30. There will be some experienced wrestlers mixed with beginning 10-11-12 year old wrestlers in this group. All levels will work toward attacking the opponent – takedowns and falls. There will be an emphasis on readiness for tournaments and competition.
