2020-2021 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.
Practice is held everyday after school that there is not a meet. Team members are expected to attend all practices and meets.
Students are required to have a CURRENT Athletic Permission Form completed on Skyward through Parent Access by the first practice. 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 team spiritwear at the beginning of the season.
