2018-2019 VIKING WRESTLING
The wrestling program is open to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. They compete as one team. The Viking wrestling program stresses safety while offering the opportunity to achieve the goal of improving as a wrestler. The wrestlers work on general conditioning and basic moves while constantly striving to improve. The wrestlers will compete against all the schools in the FVC and in the FVC Tournament . Each conference meet has a “Varsity” team line-up and the opportunity for “Exhibition” matches. Exhibition matches are for improvement of skills and an opportunity to participate.
In addition, the wrestlers compete in several invitational tournaments, non-conference meets and the IESA regional, sectional, and state tournaments. Students interested in participating in wrestling are encouraged to attend conditioning clinics that held in early December.
Practice is held everyday after school that there is not a meet. Team members are expected to attend all practices and meets.
The athletic fee for wrestling is $75. Parkland will provide each team member with a uniform to be worn only at meets. The uniform must be returned to the coach at the end of the season. Students will be billed for lost or damaged uniforms. Team members have the option to purchase a team t-shirt at the beginning of the season.
The head coach for the 2018-2019 season is Mr. Taylor.
