The Charger wrestling club is welcoming youth of all ages to participate this fall to help in “building tradition” within the Corner Canyon wrestling program.
CCHS wrestling coach Jeff Eure and his staff will teach the fundamentals of the sport while helping instill self-confidence, discipline, concentration and coordination within each wrestler.
Signups are going on now with online registrations being taken through early December for ages pre-K through eighth grades for all skill levels.
Practices begin Oct. 24 in the Corner Canyon High School and Draper Park Middle School wrestling rooms with the season extending through the end of January. A calendar of practices and tournaments will be given at the first practice.
All participants must purchase a limited Folkstyle ($20) USA Wrestling Membership.
For pre-K through second graders, the cost is $135 with practices scheduled for Monday evenings in the CCHS wrestling room. For third- through fifth-graders, the fee is $215 with practices scheduled Tuesday and Thursday 6 to 7:15 p.m. in the CCHS wrestling room. Sixth- through eighth-graders practice Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Draper Park Middle School gym and have a $235 registration fee.
Girl wrestlers in grades K through 8 will practice Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:15 to 8:15 p.m. with a cost of $135.
