Before the First Week of Wrestling Pre-Season Conditioning

 

Good morning PV Sharks Wrestling Team,

I hope that everyone has had a great summer. The first day of school is August 10th (This Friday) and Wrestling Pre-Season Conditioning will begin August 20th.

A couple of things your student-athletes need before we can get started on August 20th: 

Ponte Vedra Athletics will be using a paperless system this year.

Our athletic department provided us with a step-by-step instructional document that walks you through the process of uploading all of the necessary paperwork. I will attach the Ponte Vedra Student-Athlete Registration File to this email.

 

You will also find the EL2 Physical Form, EL3 Parent Consent & Liability Form, and Pursuing Victory with Honor Agreement, attached to this email. 

Once all of these forms are completed and uploaded, I can add your student-athlete to the team roster and we can start preparing for the 2018-2019 Wrestling Season.

Our Pre-season Conditioning program will consist of running, athletic movement training, flexibility training, and tendon/muscular strengthening exercise. The program I developed for our pre-season condition progresses every week to challenge and prepare our student-athletes for the upcoming wrestling season.

Things that are required for participating for Pre-Season Condition:

  • AAU Youth Athlete Membership

Feel free to shop around and find things that you feel are best for your student-athletes. The links are just a point of reference for things that are needed.

Please fill out the Student-Athlete Information form:

Our team is looking for Team Managers. If you have another child that attends PVHS and would like to be involved with a sports program but not compete, there will be an opportunity to join our team and help with Team Management Operations.

I hope everyone is looking forward to the start of a new school year and the beginning of a successful year on the mat! I will be on campus at PV this year working in the ESE Department. If you or your student-athlete need anything, feel free to call/text/email me.

Best Regards,
