On Sunday, October 23, 2016 the Island Trees Wrestling Club along with Locust Valley Club will be hosting a team duals at Island Trees High School located at 59 Straight Lane, Levittown, New York, 11756. The cost is $30.00 dollar’s per entry ( each wrestler ). Weigh in’s are that morning between 7:00 A.M. and 8:00 A.M. You must be registered to a team and be listed on the roster. You do not need a USA card. It is plus three for every weight class. Admission is $2.00 for adults and $1.00 for children. There will be a concession stand. The wrestling will take place at the middle school and the high school.
Now while on the topic of the tournament. The Wantagh Wrestling Club will enter as many teams as necessary to make sure our club members are entered. That being said please remember that there are numerous wrestlers that have not joined the club. Our club costs $150.00 dollars for three months. We are willing to take a partial payment if you attend less than two sessions per week. If you want to pay over the three months that is also an option. Wantagh is the cheapest club around based on the value. We have our coaches from the Varsity present. These are the coaches that take care of you during the season and know each and every one of our team members. It is not fair that each and every wrestler from Wantagh not sign up. If you are playing another sport it is a great way to support or team. If you attend a private club you must pay the fee for the day, week, or month. If you attend a private lesson that is usually paid by the day. It is not fair that Wantagh is left out. We use the money to purchase equipment, uniforms, shorts, tee shirts, head gear, hotels, cleaning equipment, buses and entry fees. Wantagh pays for a second team. This is not covered by the school. We try and enter the second team in as many events as possible. That’s why starting or being on the second team is vital to placing at the county’s.
If you did not pay the club dues chances are you will not be wrestling at Island Trees. It is not fair to the other club members from other schools or the wrestlers from our own team that did pay. Remember there is no excuse not to join the club and pay the entry fee even if you are not attending and play on another team.
