PMWC COVID Policy and Procedures
2019-2020 Parent Handbook (2021-2022 update coming)
If there is NO School (Scheduled or canceled due to weather) or school is dismissed early for inclement weather, we DO NOT have practice on that day. We will not make up practice for weather cancellations.
Please see the schedule page for your color group’s practice time, schedule and location.
Wrestlers should be on time and ready to wrestle at the start of their practice. No wrestler may leave the wrestling room without permission from a coach first. All wrestlers are expected to give complete attention to the coaches at all time. Horseplay will not be tolerated. Wrestlers that are unable to comply with the above rules may be removed from the wrestling program.
Our wrestling practices are closed practices. Only wrestlers and coaches with background clearances are permitted in the wrestling room during practice time. Parents, non-wrestling siblings, or others are NOT permitted in the wrestling room during practice. If you need to wait at the school for your wrestler’s practice to end, you may wait in the designated area for parents.
Wrestlers should wear a t-shirt and athletic shorts. A wrestling singlet is acceptable as well. Wrestling shoes and headgear are recommended, but not mandatory. If not wearing wrestling shoes, clean sneakers should be worn. No jewelry, garments with zippers, or hats may be worn during practice.
Wrestling is a sport that involves a high amount of skin to skin contact, sweat, and occasionally blood. All wrestlers should have any skin wound, no matter how small, bandaged and taped. Fingernails should be trimmed short. After wrestling in a practice or tournament, wrestlers should bathe as soon as possible. All wrestling attire should be cleaned after each use. Any child with a skin condition such as ring worm or impetigo may not wrestle unless a Doctor’s clearance is given.
The coaches of the Penn Manor Wrestling Club are unpaid volunteers. However, we still invite and encourage your comments and questions during the season. We appreciate your respectful input. Coaches are generally available either before or after practice to answer questions. You are also invited to email, text or call the program director directly if you need. We look forward to fun and successful season for all.
