Parent/Wrestler Expectations


  • ARRIVE ON TIME – Vince Lombardi once said “If you’re not five minutes early, you’re late.”
  • BE PREPARED – Make sure you have the proper equipment. If you need to change shoes/shirts, do it before practice starts. We want to start on time and end on time.
  • PLEASE wear the issued Ironhawk practice shirt
  • STAY FOCUSED – Once practice starts, be attentive and concentrate on learning, and execution.
  • ATTITUDE – Commit to maintaining a positive attitude and putting forth complete effort.
  • GIVE A GOOD EFFORT/ PRACTICE HARD – You wrestle like you practice.
  • LEAD, FOLLOW OR GET OUT OF THE WAY – Not everyone can be a leader. If you cannot be an effective leader, be an effective follower.
  • DEMONSTRATE GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP – Everyone loses at some time. Don’t behave in an unsportsmanlike manner.
  • SET A GOOD EXAMPLE; BE A ROLE MODEL – It’s especially important that varsity wrestlers set good examples for the younger or novice wrestlers, who are the future of the team. Wrestlers can set a good example for athletes in other sports as well.
  • MAKE NO EXCUSES – Take responsibility for your actions. Be accountable and don’t blame others for your decisions.
