Parent meeting on Thursday, 10/22

We hope that all new parents will attend the parent meeting on 10/22. We will be discussing how matches work, volunteering needs for our club, hosting our first match on the island and how you can help, and expected behavior of Vashon parents at matches. We will also be answering questions, so please attend. It is preferred that both parents attend, if possible.

Something new with Thursday practices

We will be trying out a new format this year. The younger wrestlers will be given an opportunity to have the mats to themselves with a Thursday practice. Some of the more experienced wrestlers will be there to help out, but the focus will be on wrestling motions more than moves. We will keep things fast paced and fun for the youngsters to hook them on the sport and get them used to the speed and physicality of wrestling. We will evaluate the effectiveness of this format during the season, but we have high hopes that it will be popular with the U8 group.

More than thirty kids signed up

Thirty plus kids signed up for the 2015/2016 Rockbusters youth wrestling season on October 7th. If you missed sign-ups, you can still come to practice on Monday. Register online at and email a scan or picture of your wrestler’s birth certificate to Manette Arteaga, You can pay and sign the concussion waiver later.
