Perham 3-6 grade wrestling starts Jan. 4

Come join the Yellowjacket Wrestling Tradition.

On Monday, Jan. 4, practices for 3-6 grade wrestling will begin at the PACC. Practices will go from 3:30-5 p.m. every Monday through March. Kindergartners through 2nd graders will begin at the end of February.

All boys K-6 are encouraged to be part of Perham's youth program, whether you have never wrestled before or have wrestled a lot. There is a small fee for singlet rental but, the Yellowjacket program pride's themselves on having minimal costs. They do plan on offering some Perham Yellowjacket Wrestling apparel that your son's can purchase at cost.

Kids only need a pair of shorts, a t-shirt and some sneakers to practice. Wrestling shoes are optional.

No wrestler is obligated to wrestle in any tournaments. They will be organizing several team events where the kids will wrestle as a Yellowjacket team against other area schools.

Wayne Werner will be coaching the 3-6 graders and Gary Flatau will be coaching the K-2 graders when they start later in the season. There are many other volunteers and parents are encouraged to help out at practice.
