Multiple Teams · It’s Wrestling Season – Practice Starts Monday 10/24/2016!!

It’s wrestling season again!!!  The Cartersville High School Varsity and Junior Varsity wrestling practices will begin on Monday October 24, 2016 @ 3:30 PM.

All wrestlers will meet in Coach Gayton’s Room # 135 in the Attendance Building for mandatory study hall from 3:30 – 4:00 each day.  Practice will start at 4:15 PM and run to 6:15 PM each day.  We will practice in “The Cave” in the back of the Storm Center each day.  Students will need to bring appropriate wrestling practice clothes: long pants and shirts are recommended, such as sweatpants and long-sleeve t-shirts, but shorts and shirts are also acceptable.  No clothes with zippers or buttons will be allowed to practice in on the mats.  Also you will need wrestling shoes to use on the mat.  If you do not have a pair of wrestling shoes, you can see Coach Edwards or Coach Gayton to borrow a pair until you can get your own.  We will discuss the practice schedule with the team on Monday and we will post the practice schedule on this website once everything is explained to the athletes.


BEFORE YOU WILL BE ALLOWED TO PRACTICE, you must have turned in all 4 required forms to Coach Edwards or Coach Gayton:

1-Current Physical Evaluation Form

2-Athletic Medical Release Form

3-2016 Concussion Form

4-2016 Drug Test Consent Form

See Coach Gayton or Coach Putnam if you need a copy of these forms.


BEFORE YOU WILL BE ALLOWED TO COMPETE IN VARSITY OR JUNIOR VARSITY EVENTS, you must have passed the Hydration Test.  Please see the other article about the Hydration Test being hosted at Cartersville High School on 10/22/2016 on the Wrestling Page at www.canesathletics.com .


There will be a pre-season party on Friday October 21, 2016 from 3:30 PM to 9:00 PM.  Athletes will be able to meet the Coaches and their teammates, verify which paperwork they have turned in and what they still need to turn in, obtain copies of any forms they need, register for the hydration testing on October 22, 2016, and ask any questions they may have about the upcoming season.  We will have fun games that we will be playing and we will watch a movie to motivate us to do well during the 2016-2017 season.  This is completely a voluntary activity, but a great way to start the season off right.  If you have any questions, contact Coach Edwards or Coach Gayton.
