Dear Neenah Wrestling Community, 

A ton of information to digest here...

In an effort to help families better plan for the summer of 2021 I want to send all of you dates we are planning to offer wrestling training through the Neenah Wrestling program.  Currently our team website www.neenahwrestling.com has an up to date calendar for all summer training opportunities offered through our program this summer.  We will be finalizing our small group training schedules in the next few weeks (Kleuskens, Bohm, Knudsen).

I would appreciate your family taking a few minutes of your time to complete the survey below so I have an estimate on interest in the opportunities we will be providing.

https://forms.gle/FFrYiCQtMUikNbfJA 

I know that many of our athletes are now in their Spring or Alternate Fall Sports season and that is and should be their main focus right now however I wanted to get this schedule out for planning purposes as I am sure you are all trying to make plans for summer.  All Neenah wrestling summer sign-ups will be released by early May as I am working through many moving pieces to make this work for as many coaches and wrestlers as possible.

 

As the head coach of this program I appreciate the opportunity to work with our student athletes in the off-season summer months. Without a doubt the time invested in the summer months pays off in winter and we have seen tremendous growth from wrestlers who have taken advantage of these and other opportunities in wrestling and athletics.  This is a very important time for our team to train together to reach our goals as a team and for our individuals to pursue their individual goals.

 

Note: All Grades listed on this email for specific opportunities are next years grades...for example if your student is currently a 7th grader all opportunities for 8th graders would be for their age group (next years grade). 

 

Here are the offerings we are planning for the summer of 2021 to place on your calendars.  Due to COVID-19 opportunities coach change but as of now this is the BEST and MOST accurate version I can send at this time.  We are still planning on adding one more summer dual opportunity to go along with the Hartford Summer Duals on June 12th.
