Fargo Par Terre Preparation Class

After Fargo this year we have made a decision to add a little freestyle into our fall curriculum.  That being said we don’t feel as though par terre work is applicable to everyone so we have added an extra par terre specific class.

When: Every Tuesday and Thursday from Sept 13- Nov 10 from 7:40-8:10.  This practice will run for 30 minutes after the other practice.

Who: This class only has 16 spots and is only for wrestlers who intend to go to Fargo(Cadet and Junior Nationals) or Schoolboy USAW Freestyle/Greco nationals.

Where: AWA Lake Country

Coach:  John Mesenbrink

We feel as though this will help our wrestlers be better prepared for Fargo next year because this is the preeminent national tournament for HS level wrestlers.

Price $125

Spring High School AWA information

Hey everyone it is tournament time so that means it is about time for wrestlers to come back to AWA, we have been getting a lot of email inquiries about what we are doing this spring so here it is!

 

AWA Lake Country(Hartland)- 596 North Shore Dr

Elite Class- 4x a week- Freestyle Focus

Monday, Tuesday and Thursday- 6:00-7:30pm

Wednesday 7:30-9:00pm

Class Starts Monday March 7th

Open House- March 6th 5:30-7:00pm***

***This is strongly recommended for new members to AWA, you will get a chance to ask questions and get signed up the day before classes start.

Our elite class is our original class and will run the entire off season for HS kids, you can sign up for 3 months, 6 months or 1 year.  3 months is the minimum commitment because we have found that when kids do shorter memberships than that they are more of a disruption to the class rather than a benefit.  Also because we run this as a team format we do not allow any partial memberships because it slows down the flow of the class.

2x a week class- SOLD OUT

Since we have started offering the 1x and 2x a week classes they have been a real hit, we are going to offer one this spring also.  This spring’s 2x a week class will have a Folkstyle focus, we have never offered a Folkstyle class in the spring but it has been often requested.

Class Starts March 15th runs until May 19th

Grades 9-12

Folkstyle focus
