We all know the drill, the B-ball coach puts in one announcement, "B-ball meeting tomorrow" 75 kids show up the next day to the meeting. As wrestling coaches, we have to work a little harder. I am posting the emails I used to generate excitement for my meeting. Don't know if they work, but they make me smile. Black Eyes and Bloody Noses
Do you find yourself arriving late to school to avoid kids that might pick on you?
Do you hang out with the teachers after class to avoid meeting students in the hallway?
Is your life a series of black eyes and bloody noses connected by a series of ill encounters with every bully this side of K-mart?
If so, join the people who joined the wrestling team, we will work with you and turn you into a mean, lean, fighting Machine!! Our wrestling team is a family pack of wild wolves that will have your back in worst scrapes with the ugliest of villains. We don’t shy from blood; we are attracted to it like great white sharks!!! Our team can be the family you never had as a kid growing up.
Seriously, wrestling is a sport where you will compete against kids your own size, and you will be separated from them by your own desire to achieve. We will teach you the fundamentals of the sport and give you the conditioning to compete, and then we will be there to support you every time you step on the mat.
There will be a meeting at Ranger Time on Monday in Mr. Ronish’s room for anyone interested in being a part of the 2011-2012 Ranger Wrestling Team.
