Middle-school wrestling begins soon

Posted January 6, 2020

Plymouth-area girls and boys in grades five through eight are encouraged to participate in extracurricular wrestling.

This is an interscholastic program, where Riverview Middle School teams compete with area schools. The team is coached by John Hoopman and C. Schuenemann. A brief initial meeting will begin at 3 p.m. Tuesday Jan. 14 in the gym at Riverview Middle School, 300 Riverside Circle. Parents do not need to attend, but may if they wish.

Practices will be after school, beginning Monday Jan. 20. The season consists of four meets mostly on Mondays beginning Feb. 17 and a conference tournament on Monday March 9.

Middle-school sports, which are open to all area students whether they attend public or parochial school or are homeschooled, are coordinated by Plymouth School District Community Education & Recreation. Registration forms are available in the Riverview and Community Ed & Rec offices as well as online, and can be returned to either office or mailed to Community Ed & Rec, 125 S. Highland Ave., Plymouth WI 53073. The cost is $20 per sport.

Please note that all student athletes need to have a doctor complete a physical form every two years. In addition, a signed concussion form must be turned in before a student can practice, and all forms must be in no later than Feb. 13 in order for a student to participate in the first game.

The Plymouth School District places a high value on extracurriculars – one of its four Pillars of Excellence – because of the strong correlation between them and academic performance. Participants learn valuable skills, excel in the classroom, and have lots of fun.
