Lakewood Wrestling Team Policies & Information
Unexcused Absence Policy
1st Unexcused Absence
2nd Unexcused Absence
3rd Unexcused Absence
Wrestling is definitely a sport with plenty of bodily contact. Wrestlers sweat and sometimes bleed profusely in practice/competition. It is very important that each athlete has clean practice clothes every day. It is also critical that each wrestler showers with soap/shampoo and dries with a clean towel each night after practice. I strongly encourage our athletes to shower before leaving the school. This will help prevent skin problems such as ringworm and impetigo from developing and spreading among teammates. Headgear, kneepads and other gear should be washed on a regular basis as well. Report all questionable skin problems immediately to a member of the coaching staff or the trainer. We are not physicians, but we have seen most skin issues and can help determine the appropriate action.
Challenge Matches (Wrestle-Offs)
Challenge matches will be offered weekly until the end of January.
Travel and Dress
Please refer to the “Sports Nutrition Tip Sheet” (attached) when considering foods to eat for competition. Junk food will not be allowed!
Athletes must earn a minimum of 25 varsity points and be in good standing with the program at the end of the season to receive a wrestling letter.
We do not condone improper methods of weight loss. “Cutting” weight improperly is strongly discouraged and must be avoided. Here are some suggestions to make weight properly:
All athletes will be expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner at school, practice, competition, and in the community. Inappropriate behavior such as unsportsmanlike conduct, insubordination or other unsatisfactory behavior will result in disciplinary action or removal from the team by the coaching staff. This will be a point of emphasis this season in our program and stressed by CHSAA. The coaching staff will abide by and enforce the Jeffco Public Schools athletic policies.
All athletes will have athletic eligibility checked by LHS each week. Student athletes must maintain passing grades or they may become ineligible to compete (CHSAA one F rule). Athletes who receive D or F grades on the weekly progress report will be assigned extra
Conditioning until their grades improve. Athletes must manage their time so that they can attend practice/competitions and fulfill academic expectations.
Academic Study Hall will be assigned to any wrestler that is on the eligibility list 2 weeks in a row.
Equipment and Lockers
Uniforms, bags, and other gear that is property of the LHS wrestling program must be clean and returned in satisfactory condition. A fine will be assessed to athletes who lose or return gear in a damaged state. All gear must be returned and athletic lockers must properly cleaned out to receive any awards at the end of the season banquet.
