Attire and Equipment

Wear shorts and T-shirt. You may wear a personal singlet if you have one. T-shirts should be tucked into shorts during practice.

Wrestling shoes strongly recommended. Shoes must be clean especially on the bottom.

Headgear and knee pads if you have them.

No jewelry (e.g., chains, watches, bracelets, etc.). Medical alert chains and bracelets can be brought to practice but should not be worn while practicing. Please alert the coaching staff to any medical condition that may affect your child.

Fingernails must be cut and filed to remove any sharp areas.

Securely cover any cuts or scrapes before practice.

Do not practice if your child has a contagious infection especially a skin infection.


Practices begin in November to March for the High School kids. The Elementary and JR High kids start in November and run through mid May. Practice is everyday for High School and 2 to 3 days a week for all others, after school. See Coach’s schedule for exact practice days.

To allow us to follow our practice plan and to ensure time for proper warm-up, please have your child at practice about five minutes early.


All practices will be held in the Cunha School Wrestling room, behind the gym, or Half Moon Bay High School wrestling room.

Parents & Siblings

Parents are not obligated to stay during practice. If you do drop your child off, please plan to pick them up promptly at  when practice ends.

Parents are welcome to stay and watch practice. If you do stay, we need your help in a few areas.

Please keep conversations with other parents and/or between siblings to minimum or go outside.With kids on the mat, we need to keep talking to a minimum so that they can hear. Sideline conversations interfere with this need. If you have wrestling experience, please speak to the coaching staff about helping. We would like to encourage your involvement.
