2021 - 2022 Welcome Letter

Good evening, Eagles family.

We have now opened registration for the 2021 – 2022 wrestling season.  The registration process has been completely automated through our partnership with Sports Engine.  The registration can be launched from our website: https://www.maineeagleswc.com/home

Parents will need to set-up a Sports Engine account.  The registration process from that point forward seems fairly straight-forward.  There will be convenience fees charged for using a credit card. Additionally, parents will need to set-up an account at USA Wrestling: https://www.usawmembership.com/login to begin the process for USAW membership.  A USA wrestling card ($55) is mandatory.  Wrestlers will not be allowed to practice without one.  Please note - that once a card has been purchased through USAW, the fee is not refundable from Maine Eagles WC.  There is an option to pay by check at the end of registration.  If you choose this option, fees are due the first week of the season.  If your wrestler is new to wrestling, a birth certificate is required.  Please email or hand deliver the birth certificate during the first week of practice.

Unfortunately, our prices have increased from the 2019 – 2020 season.  The cost of season will be $150 for one wrestler (does not include the USAW fee).  For families with more than one wrestler, the additional cost will be $50 per wrestler (does not include the USAW fee).  For more than 3 wrestlers in a family, please email me for details. Registration fees will cover one tournament and all wrestlers will receive a shirt/short combination.

Fees should never be a roadblock to wrestling.  If there is any kind of need, please let me know.

Details on the season:

  • For the time being, all practices will be held at Maine South HS.  There is a new wrestling room at Maine South which allows us to hold two practices concurrently.  We will have to limit the number of participants per room.  This dual room set-up affords us the best opportunity to do so
  • The practice schedule is not set as of yet.  This schedule will be set once registration has been finalized.  There will be plenty of opportunities to practice.  The expectation is that our 7 and under wrestlers will practice from 6 - 7 & the older wrestlers from 7 – 8:30. Wrestlers are encouraged to attend 2-3 practices per week.  The practice schedule will be released shortly after the registration close on 11/1
  • Tournament participation is not mandatory.  There is one tournament registration fee covered in the tuition.  If your wrestler(s) plans to attend any additional tournaments, the tournament fee is typically $25 (we have seen $35 already) per tournament/wrestler
  • The season is expected to start on 11/10 – the date might be adjusted depending on the Maine South HS practice schedule
  • Anyone entering Maine South will need to have a mask – there is no room for negotiation on that statement.  Wrestlers may remove their mask once we begin wrestling.  Wrestlers will have the option to keep on their mask during practice, but are not required to do so.  If you have any questions regarding this policy, please let me know

Registration will close on 10/31.

I am sure there will be a number of questions, please do not hesitate to ask away.

We look forward to getting back on the mat!

Best,

Jerry Swarbrick
