Wresters must wear headgear, shorts, t-shirts, and wrestling shoes to practice. T-shirts mustbe tucked in. No zippers, buttons, pockets or other accessories are allowed on any wrestling attire for the safety of our wrestlers.We encourage you to get your wrestling shoes as soon as possible. Academy carries a good selection. If you have a Tot wrestler, Velcro-strap style wrestling shoes are worth the extra money.
We require all wrestlersto wear head gear during practice. You can purchase at Academy or online. We recommend Cliff Keen headgear.
Family support is critical in this program.Our club is run by volunteers and we are in need of team directors and helpers at tournaments and events. Please be prepared to help out. By registering your child, you agree to work at tournaments and events in which your child competes and at the Houston National and the State Tournament, regardless of whether your child competes at that event. Your failure to work at tournaments, as mandated above, may result in the termination of your wrestler’s membership and privilege to participate with KAWC.Contact Shira Harper with questions.
If your child is still finishing football, fall baseball or soccer; do not worry. We can work them in once that season is complete.
