CF Open Mat, Thursdays, June 6th and June 13th

Good Morning Tiger Wrestling, 

As we get into the HS summer wrestling camp season we will be running a few extra open mat sessions for the HS team these next few weeks. CF open mat will only be open to 7th-12th grade wrestlers these next 2 weeks June 6th and June 13th. This will give the coaches a bit more time to work with that age group as we prepare for the Grandview and Wartburg team Camps!

Pk-12th grade open mat will opens back up starting, Thursday June 20th and we encourage everyone to attend! Please keep an eye out as the coaching staff prepares for some upcoming Cedar Falls Wrestling functions and get togethers around mid-summer....

Cedar Falls Wrestling Club 2018/2019 Wrap-UP

CFWC.JPG

I wanted to thank everyone for a great CFWC wrestling 2018/2019 season! We would not have as successful of a season without the hard work, dedication, and support of the CFWC wrestlers and parents. We have seen so much support and growth in the CFWC these last 2 years it has been unbelievable. When we started the CFWC last year we wanted to create another opportunity for youth in the Cedar Falls area to learn about and get exposed to the sport of wrestling, we have definitely done that and much more. 

The CFWC has grown in numbers by over 25% from year 1 and 2, to just over 80 PK-8th wrestlers. CFWC coaches and wrestlers traveled to just over 10 competition events this season.  We had around 50 wrestlers compete in at least one competition this year, of those 50 we had 30 plus wrestlers compete in at least 3 competitions with several wrestlers participating at 3/4 of those 11 competitions. By the numbers the CFWC wrestlers chalked up over 500 matches in the 18/19 season. That 500 plus matches toward the future of the Cedar Falls Wrestling Program. This is where it begins, the future is bright for the Tiger Nation!

Thanks again to all of the wrestlers, coaches, and parents for making the 18/19 CFWC season so successful and we are looking forward to many more.

Look forward to offseason strength training and wrestling opportunities to come.

Cedar Falls Wrestling Club Banquet, Tuesday, March 12th @ 7PM HS Cafe

Good afternoon CFWC Parents, 

First things first, I wanted to say congratulations to the Cedar Falls HS Basketball team and any family members you may have involved with the Cedar Falls HS basketball program on their fantastic season , capped off with a State Title last night in Des Moines!! All of the work we put in now translates to the success of the Cedar Falls athletic programs in the future. I am excited for the future of Cedar Falls athletics especially this group and the wrestling program. 

I apologize for the late communication but with the state basketball tournament this week, conferences next week, and spring break the following, we have been kind of scrambling with a date, time, and location to have the CFWC banquet. We have decided to have a quick get together this upcoming Tuesday night, 3/12 @ 7pm in the HS cafeteria. I know some students have conferences on Tuesday night but hope the 7pm time will be after those. 

The banquet should only last about 30-40 minutes. The program will provide some snacks and waters/ pops but if you would like to bring some additional treats to share it would be much appreciated. I will try and keep it short I just wanted to get through a short re-cap of the season, outlook for years to follow. We will also be talking about offseason wrestling opportunities and lifting opportunities for the older group. We also still have select sized CFWC t-shirts, singlets, and bags available for purchase at the banquet.  

We are looking at a mid-summer get together possibly the weekend of June 14th and 15th. There is a takedown tournament in LaPorte City Union I think would be great to get into as a club. We could possibly do a BBQ in the CF area on Friday night and get everyone wrestling in the tournament the following day in LPC. We will keep in communication with this and have a few extra practices in the week before the tourney. 

Please let me know if you are going to make it with how many will be attending. For those who are not going to make it I will send a brief recap with all of the information next week. 

Thanks and hope to see you Tuesday,

Coach Curran
