Frequently Asked Questions
What is wrestling at Willis High School?
Wrestling is a coed program that teaches student athletes from grades 9-12 how to operate in a disciplined, confident, and respectful manner when presented with a high stress situation that tests both their mental and physical capacities in an everchanging environment.
How much does it cost to be on the Wrestling Team?
The only piece of gear we require the student atheletes to purchase is a set of wrestling shoes. They can be purchased at Academy or online for around $50. We have a $60 charge for the food that will be supplied at the tournaments. If the family elects to be part of the Wrestling Booster Club it is $10 for the entire family.
Where does the team practice?
Currently the team practices in the Purple gym at Willis High School.
How long is the wrestling season?
This year we have a Wrestling Athletic class that will begin at the beginning of the school year. There are opportunities to participate in summer wrestling camps and we even sponsor our own camp for the Middle School students that are getting close to qualification age in order to educate them about our program.
What about the uniforms?
The wrestling uniform is provided by the school district.
Who does my student athelete wrestle against?
All students wrestle against students of the same gender and within a weight class that is within an acceptable range.
