FYI to Parents: Tonight will be our last regular practice for the season. Please have your wrestler bring his/her BDYW t-shirt for a team picture.

For those that make it on to State and/or going to M.A.T. for Champions, we will have a couple more practices at the High School’s functional room next week. Please see a coach for details.

With the two other teams we hope to give everyone the chance to compete once with another kid. Great opportunity to get some live wrestling mat time experience in.

We have sent out text messages to all of our parents to get names, ages, weights OR who doesn’t want to compete. Please respond as soon as possible. You can also respond via our contact form if you didn’t get the text.

2014 GOYA Challenge Canceled

Unfortunately due to low pre-registration numbers and after hours of discussion, club leadership has chosen to cancel the 2014 GOYA Challenge.

We wanted to focus on having a high quality tournament, but unfortunately we don’t think we can deliver that with lower numbers. Between other nearby tournaments and the Super Bowl, timing did not work out for us to introduce our own tournament.

For public registrants, we have not deposited any funds so we will be refunding any PayPal payments and returning all mailed in payments over the next couple of days.

For BDYW parents and wrestlers, we will substitute registration to the Watertown tournament this Sunday for whoever wants to go. We will be collecting names and information for all of those that are interested during Wednesday’s (Jan 29th) practice.

Over the next 9 months, we will be talking with other clubs to plan and pick a better date next year, and extend some opportunities to clubs that register 10 or more kids. Sorry for the inconvenience, we appreciated the support we got from everyone.

For any questions contact us online by contacting us here or call 920-319-8727
