Wrestling Information

Wrestling will be starting soon at Alice Ott. It is not too late for your student to be involved. We
start the season January 17 th and the cost is $50.  This is a chance for your student to be involved
with a sport that combines muscular strength, muscular endurance, and technique, and to develop these no matter their present level.  There is no experience necessary, as the coaches want to work with all interested young people.
Your student will learn the basic techniques as well as self-discipline from a very motivated and experienced coaching staff.
Coach Schmitt has be coaching wrestling for over 28 years at both the high school and middle school level. Coach Benner has been coaching for 18 years.  Wrestlers need to have a physical and registration form filled out before they can begin
practice. You can obtain these forms from the office or from the coaches themselves. We are hoping for another great season as we are competing for our 7th straight District Championship this year. As an added bonus, at the end of the season Coach Schmitt puts together a team highlight video for each wrestler that finishes the season.  If you need to contact either of the coaches you may call the school at 503 256-6510 or email Coach Schmitt at:

We hope to see your student on the mat!
