New Team Uniforms!

We are excited to announce that the Wrestling Team will have new Rudis Gear Uniforms this upcoming wrestling season! Wrestlers will not be wearing singlets! This initiative is not just in our area but nationally. Instead they will compete in compression shorts and shirts. There will be times that Varsity wrestlers may choose wear the old singlets during competition, but for the most part, everyone will be in the new uniform. Therefore each wrestler will be responsible for purchasing a new uniform package. The Booster Club has been busy raising money to offset the cost of this package during the off season. New uniforms is a massive expense (over $10,000). In order to have the uniforms arriving in time for the upcoming season it is important that we begin to take up Team Fees and Uniform Fees NOW. If your child has not been sized for a uniform please contact Coach Bullington (teacher at AJHS) or have your child text Coach Spencer to set up a time to get properly sized.  Please follow the link below and pay these two fees as soon as possible. We have several more fundraisers coming up.
