Wrestling is open to all interested HPMS students, boys and girls. It is a no-cut sport. All students interested in being part of the HPMS wrestling team need to complete the athletic packet and physical form and turn it into the main office before the first practice. Also, parent participation and volunteers are often needed, so please make sure to complete the parent volunteer clearance forms and driver/insurance information.
Wrestling starts at the beginning of February. Watch the daily bulletin for announcements about practice and sign ups.
Wrestling practices are typically held in the evenings at Amador Valley High School (AVHS) in the small gym two nights a week, with some additional conditioning practices on other nights.
Participation in wrestling tournaments on the weekends are also common, and more information will be provided by the Head Wrestling coach, Terry Duran.
First letter from the coach:
Welcome to Harvest Park Wrestling!
Harvest Park has a great Wrestling history and I’m glad that your son or daughter will play their part in continuing the tradition!! Looking forward to getting the season going!!
Paperwork: In order to participate YOU MUST HAVE A COMPLETED ATHLETIC PACKET. If you already played another HP Sport this year you won’t need another physical but you still have to fill out the other forms.
What to wear & bring? Please bring your old wrestling shoes so we let others use them. Wear shorts, t-shirt and wrestling shoes (you can wrestle in your socks to start out).
Calendar - I will send out a calendar soon but tournaments are Saturdays in March and Tri-Meets (2 other teams) start in March.
Communication - Shawn Copenhagen is our team manager so you will get emails from her or me. Feel free to email me anytime if you have questions (please don’t “reply all”, only include those needed on the email).
COACH — Terry Duran
Athletic Community Service
Keeping in line with the Pleasanton Unified School District’s new Mission and Vision statements:
Our students will make a better world
Every student will be a resourceful, resilient, responsible and engaged world citizen.
This year, all HP student athletes are being asked to contribute a minimum of 2 hours of service back to their school or community. As a team, there are many ways teams will be able to contribute or give back to the community or to the improvement of our campus. Ideas should be discussed by the team and coach, then approved by the Athletic Director, Jack Parsons.
