I hope everyone is having a great summer so far!! We just finished up with Iron Sharpens Iron camp (62 DWC members in total including the HS kids). As soon as the all sports camps are done at loras we will resume wrestling practice.
I will be sending out the pre season info in the next week or so, I wanted to get this information out first though. Attached is the information for the 2017-2018 folkstyle season. We are changing things up quite a bit this year as listed below.
We have added a 2nd full time coach in Darrin Kaisand, and are in the process of looking for a potential 3rd coach as well. We also have a great group of dads that help out at a lot of the practices/tournaments as well.
We will be practicing 3 days a week this year as opposed to 2 days as week
There will be 2 membership options Elite=12 months and Gold=6 months (folkstyle season) Explanation in further detail is attached. FAMILY RATES WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR BOTH!
Elite membership will cover October 1 2017-September 31 2018 (these members will not pay for freestyle session, or next years pre season session). Elite membership will also will include a full gear package of singlet, sweatshirt, sweatpants, t shirt, shorts.
Gold membership- will cover October 1 2017- March 31 2017 (these members would pay freestyle session/next years pre season session). Gold membership will also so will include partial gear package (sweatshirt, sweatpants, t shirt, shorts)
We are trying to raise money to help bring in more coaches/clinicians through out the year, as well as purchasing more training equipment, help upkeep the wrestling room, as well as other various expenses. We are also planning on donating $$ to the Loras wrestling progam, as they let us use their room free of charge, whenever we want.
The club fees are a bit higher than the past, and with that we are offering sponsorship payment oppurtunities. The goal of this is to help raise more $$ for DWC/Loras wrestling AND help off set and lower club fees for our wrestlers
Attahched with the membership info, are the sponsor ship options. Any sponsor you find, 60% of that money will go towards your club fee
If you find a $1000 sponsor, your elite membership would be paid in full
If you found a $600 sponsor, $360 of that would go towards your membership fees
Any extra $ after club fees are paid, would go towards the club
Practice will begin October 1st, however membership/sponsorship fees will not be due until November 1st. Everything must be turned in by then so we can get all the sponsor stuff settled away and get our gear order placed
We will also have a monthly membership as some kids only want to come leading up to the state tournament
We willl still offer the $5 drop in rate for those who cannot make it often. This year for the drop in we will be selling a card for $50, good for 10 practices never expires. That way you do not have to remember cash every night, and it will be less stressful for everyone involved.
WE WILL BE HOLDING A COUPLE PARENT MEETINGS TO GO OVER ALL OF THIS INFORMATION AS WELL, WE PLAN ON DOING 2-3 OF THEM BETWEEN JULY AND SEPTEMBER AS EVERYONE IS BUSY, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE ANYONE WHO WANTS TO, CAN ATTEND
I know this is a lot of information (especially on a Friday), so if you have any questions please feel free to call/text/email ANY TIME with questions/concerns. I wanted to get this out as soon as possible so everyone could start looking for sponsors if desired. I have a sponsor letter attached that can be used, as well as an invoice if any companies need one. I can also give you our TAX ID # if requested by anyone.
