This section of the site is dedicated to the information you need as a parent to decide if wrestling is the right sport for your child, if the Rhinos is the right club for your child and if so the administrative information you will need to know. We also have a Wrestling Info page (focused on the sport of wrestling) and a Tournament Info page (focused specifically on preparing for and attending tournaments). If you have any additional questions please post on our message board or to our Facebook page.
What should my wrestler do to be prepared for practice?
Wrestlers should come to practice in t-shirts, short and wrestling shoes. Please trim fingernails before each practice. Headgear is optional.
Do I need to stay at practice?
Parents are welcome to stay and watch practice, but are not required to do so. Parents wishing to help out on the should see our Support the Rhinos page.
How does my wrestler compete?
We will have a few scrimmages with other local wrestling clubs. These usually take place before a high school match at one of the local high schools. We will be working these dates out with other clubs in the area, so keep an eye on this website for updates. Parents and wrestlers are encouraged to stay for the high school matches. Our coaches will also attend several tournaments during the season to coach Rhinos who attend (see our Tournament Info page for information) but Rhinos are free to attend other tournaments as well.
