HYGIENE:
All wrestlers to practice on our mat and to wrestle in matches must adhere to these strict hygiene guidelines. Failure to do so will result in removal of the children from the mat. We certainly do not want to embarrass anyone so please follow.
  • Fingernails must be clipped and clean.
  • Practice and match Clothing must be clean.
  • Hair and skin must be clean and free of open wounds or sores.
  • Undergarments must be clean and free of any odors.
  • Deodorant is highly recommended for boys 10yrs and older.
All Parents:
  • Coaches are available and have volunteered to coach. We are always looking for new RUTGERS SAFETY certified volunteers. Parents, let the coaches coach.
  • Please encourage your wrestler to write down notes when they get home from practice to help remember the moves and exercises they worked on. A general wrestling journal is a nice idea.
  • Encourage your wrestler to do exercises at home (hand grips, pull ups, push ups etc).
  • All wrestlers are strongly advised to have anti-bacterial wipes to wipe off hands arms and necks after practice or matches and when home, shower and use DEFENSE Soap or an antibacterial soap and Selsun Blue for their hair and body. This prevents the spread of any germs.
  • Any suspect skin lesions will be taped and covered and will require a doctor’s note.
