CWC Feedback - April 2017

CWC Parents/Supporters,

 

A couple of updates:

 

-          We are continually trying to improve and give the kids the best experience possible.  An important part of this is trying to gather feedback, please reach out to Jimmy Burns and Tommy Mello to provide feedback on:

o   What went well?

o   What could be improved?

o   Ideas for future sessions?

 

-          I want to acknowledge and thank all of the parent volunteers that helped out with many different aspects of the club this year.  Your support was greatly appreciated. 

o   We will be setting up some more formal roles for parent participation for the upcoming year and we hope that we will have similarly enthusiastic participation.

 

-          Even though the season is over please consider continuing to support the CWC via the Kroger Card reward program.

o   1.  Get a Krogers card

o   2.  Go to Krogers.com and create an account

o   3.  Click on "community" the tab at the top.  Go to Kroger community rewards

o   4.  Go to enroll or re-enroll now

o   5.  Go to Edit

o   6.  Search for Cavalier wrestling club or enter 93606

o   7.  The enrollment needs to be renewed every year.

o   DETAILS:  Once you have enrolled 5% of everything you buy(except gas)  is donated to the Cavalier Wrestling Club.  Often they will have deals such as double rewards when buying gift cards etc.   If you buy $100 in groceries the club gets $5. 

 

I hope that you all have a great off season.  For those of you with kids that want to stay on the mat, the Spring Session is underway, there will be the UVA camps this summer, and we will have a Fall Session.  Please see the web-site for announcements and details.

NCAA update

All,

                A quick update on NCAA wrestling:

UVA has two semi finalists for the first time in school history. They will wrestle on ESPN at 7:00 tonight.

125 lbs (first weight class) true freshman #10 Jack Mueller vs #6 Ethan Lizak (Minnesota). Lizak beat Jack earlier this season.

141 lbs (3rd weight class) senior #6 George DiCamillo vs #10 Bryce Meredith (Wyoming). I don't think they ever wrestled before.

Currently in sixth place

Free clinic @ Skyline High School this Sunday (03/19)

Please consider forwarding this to your team.

 

This Sunday, March 19th, Sick Nasty Freestyle Club will be hosting a FREE CLINIC featuring Tim Pierson from 3-5 PM at Skyline High School. The point of this clinic is to assist wrestlers and families with the transition from folkstyle wrestling to freestyle wrestling. You will be provided an overview of the major rule differences between the two styles as well as some of the differences in strategies.

 

The goals of this clinic:

1) Better understand the rules of freestyle

2) Better understand the benefits of freestyle to those who want to improve at folkstyle

3) Better understand the strategies that advanced freestyle wrestlers use to win tough matches

 

Here are some senior events Tim has officiated:

 

Recently returned from the 28th Grand Prix Ivan Yarygin in Krasnoyarsk Russia.

 

2016 - He was selected to referee the Olympic Trials, 09-10 April in Iowa City. Also has been selected to referee the UWW Junior Pan American Championships in Barinas Venezuela .
