The Wrestling Season

The 2016/17 Bonhomme wrestling season will begin with a Mandatory Parent Meeting & Equipment Handout on Monday 11/7/16 at Eureka High School and the first official practice will be held on Thursday 11/10/16 at Lafayette High School.  The typical wrestling season runs through mid-February for beginners and through late March for the advanced wrestlers. Due to the club’s large size and in order to create an outstanding teaching environment, practices at each site are split based on experience levels (Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced).  We currently have three practice sites – Marquette, Eureka, and Lafayette High Schools -- where we host practices for Bonhomme Wrestling.  Practices run three days a week; Monday, Tuesday and Thursday respectively. Schedules for all three practice sites are available below and via our calendar

Elite wrestlers with two or more years of experience are encouraged to join Purler Wrestling Academy to gain additional mat experience. Information for Purler Wrestling Academy is available on the internet at www.purlerwrestling.com. Practices for the Purler Wrestling Academy are held on Wednesdays nights at Missouri Baptist University.

Practices

Wrestlers are encouraged to attend ALL practices at their appropriate level (Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced) and everyone is invited to the “Specialized Training Night” practice at Marquette High School on Monday nights.  Canceled practices will be communicated via e-mail and text messages.

 

All wrestlers are strongly encouraged to attend at least TWO practices a week (except Little Badgers who will only practice once per week on Thursday evenings)!  Parents and wrestlers can choose which site to attend and can attend all practices if desired.
