    The Decorah Wrestling Program would like to notify you that we will be
    modifying our youth wrestling program for this year to better sure the
    needs of our youth wrestlers. We will be having two levels in our youth
    club this year. Our Fundamental Group Level will practice once a week
    on Mondays. Kindergarteners through 2nd graders will practice from 6:30
    to 7:30 PM while 3rd graders through 6th graders will practice from 7:30
    to 8:30 PM. These practices will go from Nov. 14th through our youth
    tournament in February. The registration fee for the Fundamental Group
    Level is $45 and this fee includes a club t-shirt and paid entry into
    the Decorah Viking Athletic Booster Club (DVABC) Youth Wrestling
    Tournament. This group is very similar to what we have done in the

    We will be expanding our youth program to have a Competitive Group
    Level. This is for youth wrestlers to be given the opportunity to be
    better prepared to compete in youth wrestling tournaments through out
    the wrestling season. There will be two sessions for the Competitive
    Group Level. The first session will run from Oct. 17th to Dec. 15th
    with practices on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 PM and Thursdays from 6:30
    to 7:45 PM. The second session will run from the beginning of January
    through the last youth state tournament in March. The registration fee
    for the Competitive Group is $100 per session. This fee includes a club
    t-shirt, club singlet, paid entry fee to the DVABC tournament and paid
    entry fee to 2 local tournaments. If a youth wrestler completes both
    sessions they will earn one paid entry fee to a youth state wrestling
    tournament. 7th and 8th grade wrestlers will be able to join the club
    after their school season has concluded.
