We have a new store open if anyone wants to grab some stuff in the off season. Since X-Grain is slow this time of year, there are NO minimums on this store. If you want something, you can get it now without worrying if others are going to order it also. If you have questions on sizing (everything is adult sizing), feel free to message me any time. Store will close on June 30th.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Please email us back the answers to the below questions as soon as possible! Practice this week is back to normal Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday
- Gear orders are in! Team shirts and any extra gear you may have ordered will be available for pick up at practice on Wednesday, please try to make sure and be there to pick it up so we can get it all done in 1 night. We will also be taking a team picture with all the kids in their new t shirts. If you have already got your gear, please wear the new team shirt to practice this Wednesday. We are still waiting on singlets but will have those available at all practices as soon as they are in.
2.. We need ticket count for the Iowa/Iowa State dual by Monday’s Practice! If you would like to go with the group please let us know how many tickets you need ASAP! We are paying for all full time members tickets, additional tickets for siblings/parents/etc are $10 a piece.
- Christmas break Chicago trip. We need to block rooms for the Chicago trip ASAP! We will leave for the hotel around 1pm on Saturday December 22nd, then we will workout at my high school Saturday evening around 4/5pm, followed by pizza at the hotel. We will then wrestle at my high schools youth tournament on Sunday and head home. Please let us know ASAP if you want to attend this tournament. We need at least 10 wrestlers signed up by the end of this week or we may have to cancel the trip this year.
- DWC Burger night has been tentatively scheduled for Friday January 18th at the Eagles Club. This is always a great time to get everyone together for some good food and wrestling talk! Please feel free to invite and famiy/friends/neighbors ETC. The more the merrier. We will have a silent auction with some great items for wrestling and also some stuff for non wrestlers as well.
- Dual tournament January 12th. Please let us know ASAP if you want to participate in the dual tournament on January 12th. Weights are posted on the Facebook group page. We can take 5 extra wrestlers besides those weights. If there are multiple kids who want to go the same weight, we might need to have wrestle offs to determine who goes at those weights, it’s the only fair way to decide who gets to wrestle.
- Tournament results. Coach Schultz tries to post pictures/results each weekend which can be very difficult as we may have kids wrestling at 4-5 different tournaments throughout the weekend. Please text/email/FB message coach Schultz and pictures/results you can to include in the updates/end of the year banquet slideshow!
Practice this week: Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday @6pm
Parent meeting/registration: Next Monday @ 6pm (during practice). Coach O will be running practice while Coach Schultz takes care of the meeting. Please plan on attending even if your wrestler is unable to attend
Casey’s fundraising cards: $ and unsold cards are due back at the parent meeting. I still have about 100 cards if anyone wants any to sell. Each card you sell = $5 off your folkstyle/full time membership.
Registration/Gear orders: Registration fees/ gear orders are due no later than November 12th. We will only be doing 1 order, please get it to practice this week or bring it to the meeting, if you need to mail it to us, let us know and we can send you an address.
Weekend recap: We had a great weekend at Rumble on the river. We had about 15 wrestlers compete and finished with 3 champions, 3 runner ups, and 5 other place winners. We are very proud of the way the kids wrestled this weekend, and more importantly the way they carried themselves on and off the mat!
With that said, we saw several parents at this tournament & pre season nationals (none of them were from our club) acting in a completely unacceptable manner. While none of these parents were DWC parents, we are lucky to have a great group of kids AND parents to work with, we still feel it was a good idea to send out a friendly reminder that these are KIDS wrestling. We know how difficult it can be at times to show stay calm when kids are wrestling (especially your own). Please continue to be supportive of your wrestlers in a positive way. As difficult as it can be, please try to refrain from coaching them in the practice room when they are wrestling live. We WANT them to make mistakes at practice, so we can continue to correct them, sometimes when kids are being coached during live wrestling they will shut down because they are afraid to make mistakes. Let them make mistakes. Youth wrestling is nothing more than practice for the next level. Practice is where we want mistakes to happen, so we can continue to see what needs to be worked on. If anyone wants to help during technique we are ok with that, as long as it is in a positive manner and you try to help other wrestlers as well.
Again, we have not had an issue with our group, but thought this was something to bring up with the season starting up. Thank you for being a great group and for all of your support!!
