In-Season Practice

In-season practice consists of longer wrestling workout sessions as well as move instruction based on scouting reports regarding upcoming opponents.  When the preseason is over the practices will move into competition readiness.  These practices will consist of more drilling, more wrestling, and will continue to push the intensity level of each athlete.  Each week will focus on building from the previous week and take into consideration keys from matches at tournaments.
