    Alternate Uniform Options

    All wrestlers will be provided a school issued singlet (BLACK), which is the traditional uniform.  Acceptable alternate uniforms that can be individually purchased include:

    • Competition Shorts over singlet
    • Compression Shirt under singlet
    • Compression or Competition Shorts with Compression Shirt, instead of singlet

    If purchasing Alternate uniform items, please purchase them in BLACK, if possible.  I suggest ordering through www.suplay.com because they are a wrestling company.  Look for items under Compression Tees, Compression Shorts, and Competition/Fight Shorts.

     

    • Pictures: Please take pictures to be included in the Banquet slideshow, as well as to be hung up in the wrestling room.  Pictures should be uploaded to the facebook link below, or emailed directly the Banquet slideshow coordinator, John Lockwood.  Please send the picture separately to Coach DeLucia to be considered as a poster for the wrestling room.

    • Concessions.  Natalie Lesh set up a Sign Up Genius so that parents can donate the food (except for the pizza) that we'll sell at home V/JV and Modified meets. We did this for the concession stand at the wrestling tournament in the past and it's the only way to really make any profit doing this. The link to the sign up is below
    • Volunteers.  We are looking for a Modified Wrestling Parent(s) who is willing to work the concession table during home meets/scrimmages.  The table is right in the gym, so you will still be able to watch your child wrestle.  Please contact Coach DeLucia or Varsity Parent Natalie Lesh if you are willing to do this!
