Wrestling Season begins January, 2018. Exact dates for practices TBD.
The Thomas Hart Wrestling Team is part of the Tri-Valley Athletic League. The team is open to everyone -- boys and girls. If you practice, you can compete. There are no tryouts or cuts. Wrestling practice starts at the end of January. 
Competitions start TBD
An informational meeting for students will be held on Thursday, January 11 during both lunches in the Hart library. Students will hear more information about the overall wrestling season, practices schedules, matches, and tournaments. 
Parents Meeting is on Friday, January 25 in the Hart Library at 6 pm.

Practice starts on TBD in the wrestling room at Foothill High School.  
The team will practice Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays prior to competition starting. After that, practices will be adjusted based on matches and tournaments, which are currently scheduled for Thursdays and Saturdays, respectively. 
Students must complete and turn in the entire sports packet, including a physical exam, before they are allowed to take part in wrestling, including practices. Click here for the full sports packet.  Students must also maintain a 2.0 GPA with no F's in order to participate. 
There will be no practices on days when meets are held. All practices and competitions are in preparation for the one main league tournament at the end of the season, so it's important to attend all meets to get prepared.  Wrestlers are expected to attend all meets and stay for the entire meet, even after they are done wrestling for the day. Though wrestling seems "one on one", it is still a team sport and it's important to support all teammates. Please note, some schools charge a nominal spectator fee which goes back into the area wrestling programs.
Dress code on meet days: Boys must wear a dress shirt and tie to school on days we have meets. Girls may wear a blouse and skirt or dress pants.
Snacks: Wrestlers should bring healthful snacks with them for practices and meets. Oranges, grapes, apples and lots of water are good snacks that provide extra energy and vital hydration.
There is a $100 requested donation for wrestling to cover the team's expenses.
We will need drivers for some meets. If you are not already cleared as a volunteer, click here for the volunteer clearance form. You'll also have to show proof of insurance on your vehicle, so please get a field trip clearance form from the front office.
