This is just a quick follow-up to the email that I sent yesterday. Several parents have contacted me to let me know that they will be taking their child to compete at the EC Glass wrestling tournament in Lynchburg this Saturday. This is fantastic! Competition is the best way for your kids to improve their wrestling skills, and tournaments are a fun way to build friendships with other kids on the team.
In case you were on the fence about registering your child, I wanted to let you know that have a growing number of CWC wrestlers who will be in attendance, and at least one of our CWC coaches, Tony D'Alessio, will be making the trip. Coach D'Alessio will be bringing his own son, Andrew, and he has let me will know that he will be happy to coach your kids as well, should any of you choose to bring them.
I have listed more information about the tournament below. If you decide to register your child, please use this link to sign them up, and be sure to print the flier/waiver that you will need to sign as their parent: http://www.autowrestle.com/

Many of you have inquired with me about wrestling opportunities outside of our scheduled CWC matches. Below you will find an email that I received from the Virginia Wrestling Association today. There are several upcoming events listed in this email. The CWC will not necessarily be sending coaches to these events (although we may for some). However, for our wrestlers who are enjoying the sport and looking to get some additional competition experience, these are some great options.
You can also find a list of all VAWA tournaments on their website, here: http://www.virginiawrestling.com/page/show/980380-tournaments
Please let me know if you have any questions, and don't hesitate to contact me if you would like a CWC singlet for your child to wear while competing.
Have a happy New Year!

P.S. Reminder, there will be Elementary/Middle School practice tonight at Onesty Hall, and practices for both Elementary/Middle School (Onesty Hall) and Pee Wee (Charlottesville High School) tomorrow night. All practices begin at 6 pm.
