Governor Murphy has signed an order permitting winter indoor sports (including wrestling) with some restrictions.
See order here.
To that end we are planning on having BHPAL wrestling for the 2020-21 season. We will follow all national, state and local guidelines.
Wrestling is one of the fastest growing sports in our area. This program is a terrific option for kids who want to try something new, serious wrestlers looking to take it to the next level and fall/spring athletes who are looking for a way to be active and get in shape during the winter. Wrestling teaches leadership and discipline: 11 U.S. Presidents were former wrestlers. Our program is a feeder for the Columbia and Governor Livingston teams.
The program is open to all Berkeley Heights and Mountainside wrestlers in grades 1 to 8. Due to the practice size limitations we will be working under we are NOT able to accept kindergarten wrestlers this year.
The season will begin in mid-November and will run through mid February. There will be two practices a week, wrestlers will be separated by age, size and ability. As of now the competition schedule is unclear, but we will be practicing and ready for competitons as they arise.
The fee for the season is $175. This includes all practices, most competitions, a sweatshirt, tee-shirt and shorts as well as use of a singlet for competitions. (The singlet must be returned at the end of the season.)
If the season winds up being cancelled or shortened you will receive a prorated refund.

The BHPAL is committed to not letting finances preclude kids from participating in sports. If you would like your child to participate but are unable to pay the fee please reach out to Bill (above). All inquires 100% confidential.
