2012 Summer Schedule

Our new schedule for the 2011 Summer sessions of RAW 241 is coming soon. You can practice any day of the week and at multiple locations with our current schedule. What have you done to get better today??

 

 

New Report Card System

 

In the "Welcome Back" Packet that was handed last fall, there was information regarding our new Report Card System. The grades earned by our wrestlers on the report card will determine whether or not wrestlers are eligible to participate in the "7" Up Class (Wednesday nights/Sunday Afternoons).

ALL WRESTLERS MUST TEST INTO THIS CLASS. PLEASE DO NOT SHOW UP TO THIS CLASS UNTIL YOU HAVE EITHER SPOKEN WITH COACH JOHNSON TO DISCUSS YOU/YOUR SON'S ATTENDANCE.

Please refer to the paperwork for more details about this issue.

The following is an excerpt from the packet describing the "7" Up opportunity:

"Members who score an overall grade of "7" or higher on the RAW test will be eligible for specialized practices that include only other members who also received a "7" or higher on the test. All members must test into this class. There will also be a special class designed for those members who test into the "6" and under group. Please pay close attention to the monthly calendar as it reflects these details regarding who is eligible to attend which practices."
