I hope everything is going well. We are literally 6 weeks away from the start of wrestling season. It will be here before we know it. Just a reminder that the mandatory parent meeting is Wednesday, Oct. 18th at 6 p.m at the meeting room at the high school. Please add it to your calendar.
Also, get to work on the calendar fundraiser if not already done so. Get your kids to work on it, take a copy to work ect. All you are doing is getting people to say "I will donate the 20th, I will donate the 5th ect" and they will donate the dollar amount associated with the date. Please be proactive and get working on it. This fundraiser will offload a lot of the burden off of us parents. Thanks everyone.

Operating as usual
Good Morning Everyone,
Hard to believe it's almost October. The school year is moving right along. Here is an update to the preseason training schedule. Best on Best Starts Monday October 2nd. Please see the below information from Coach Owens.
Best on Best is training sessions by Coach Chris Owens. He was my college coach and is the State Chair and developmental coach for Idaho USA wrestling. These practices are designed for more advanced wrestlers. Please see below for information regarding those practices. Those practices will be Mondays and Thursdays - 6-730 p.m. Mondays at Mountain View, Thursdays at Meridian. A USA wrestling card is required. That is the insurance piece. It is not mandatory. Coach Briggs will still be running the open mat on Wednesdays at Mountain View. I will reach out to those who I feel would be a good fit for Best on Best, but all would benefit. Again it is an advanced type of training. With that said, I do not want to discourage any of your kids from coming to it. Just keep in mind that a USA wrestling card is required. Link is below.
Mondays- Best on Best 6-730 p.m. MVHS
Tuesdays- Lifting 530 p.m. MVHS
Wednesday- Open Mat 530 p.m.
Thursday- Best on Best Meridian High School/ Lifting MVHS 5:30/ 6:00
Again, please understand that none of these are mandatory, all optional. If nothing else, the open mat on Wednesdays will more than adequately prepare your wrestler for the season. Thank you all, please see below.
Coaches , Club Directors, Parents- We are very excited to kick off Best on Best practices for the fall of 2023.
