Tournament Schedule: The P2P league will publish the tournament schedule soon and the Club will choose 4 tournaments per session (8 total for Intermed/Adv) to attend as a team. We normally participate in state tournaments at the end of the season and may consider adding at least one optional national travel tournament this year, depending on interest.
Wrestlers are encouraged to compete at all club events but it is not mandatory. Wrestlers are also welcome to compete in additional tournaments during the season, but we cannot guarantee coaches at the non-club tournaments.
THE primary source of income for our club is the P2P tournament that we will host at TVHS which is currently expected to be on December 22nd. Please understand that we truly need all hands on deck for this tournament to be successful, so please save the date now! We cannot over-emphasize how important your help is to our club’s tournament- the income from this event is what keeps the club running.
Coaches: We LOVE our coaches!!! We could absolutely not run a wrestling season without them. If you are a parent with wrestling experience in your background and are interested in coaching, please let us know. All coaches who are able to commit to supporting our wrestlers at tournaments will have their USA Wrestling Coach’s card ($40) paid for and will receive a free club t-shirt.
***Costs associated with the season:
Registration (club t-shirt included): Beginner sessions $70/each Advanced $140
Uniform-Singlet: $45 (new design in 2018-19 is not mandatory…wrestlers can use last year’s singlet if preferred)
Uniform 2-piece (“MMA” style): $75-$85 (optional in place of singlet or in addition to singlet)
USA Wrestling Card: $15 Limited Folkstyle Season (required at registration before wrestlers can practice) If you already have an account with USAW, you just have to log in and renew your membership for the new year. If you are new to USAW, you will need to create a parent account and create a profile for each of your wresters before purchasing their membership. Here is a link to USAW's help page if you need assistance: https://www.usawmembership.com/help
Tournament Fees: The P2P League charges a $20 entry fee per wrestler per tournament. This fee is payable to TVWC at weigh-ins which are usually held on Wednesdays prior to tournament Saturdays.
***TVWC is a 501c3 non-profit, which means you can solicit donations and sponsorships from local businesses to offset your costs. 10% of sponsorship is retained by the club for administration of the sponsorship program. Please see the sponsorship page for the solicitation letter and application. Please note - sponsorship funds will be tracked per wrestler and can roll forward to future seasons but cannot be refunded to the wrestler for any reason. Please also consider soliciting donations and sponsorships to the club in general for scholarship fund, team travel, team gear, and other admin costs.
