b.     Finding mistakes at tournaments is the best way to grow each individual to their maximum potential.

X.             Registration at Tournaments

a.     We ask all wrestlers to register under Siouxland Wrestling Academy when registering for Tournaments. This helps the coaching staff immensely when trying to find out where each kid is going to wrestle

XI.            Coaching at Tournaments

a.     Coaches are expected to be at all local and national tournaments throughout the season. As you know the coaching staff is out numbers when it comes to wrestle. We ask that you let coaches know what mat and match number you child is, so we can coach your kid

b.     Coaches will try their best to be at every match your child wrestles in. Larger tournament this sometimes can be very difficult to do. If you would like someone on the coaching staff to watch a specific match, please let them know ahead of time so they are there and ready to coach when your child steps on the mat.
