Mates with the Mat? Friends with Floor Burns? Join Wrestling!
Dec 3, 2008

As they say, "there is something for everyone" at SSSAD.  If you are friends with floor burns, frantic fun, sweat with a smile, grunting and groaning, testing the powers of your aerobic an anaerobic limits, and layin a lickin by sending while also receiving physical punishment within the boundaries and skill limits of sport then wrestling is for you.   Wrestling training camp has opened around the city with bouters excited abou the start of a new season and a new high profile format for high school wrestling.

Rookies and veterans alike are learning the skills of the trade this week in preparation for an interesting season ahead in high school wrestling.  Wrestling officials have set a course for higher standards of excellence, participation and competition with tests throughout the season with various challenges for the inexperienced and those familiar with the sport.   Having set aside the dual school format for tournament style wrestling which brings the sport back to its roots of 3 ring circus style constant action in primetime performance, officials hope to test the limits of its competitiors while attracting new athletes and raising the entertainment value of the sport.

Beginnning in December with the Walter Murray Pre Season Tournament on December 13, wrestlers have a Series of Challenges facing them and an opportunity to face the best in their bouts over the course of a season. Rookies hit the mats in an all Novice event at Aden Bowman and Bishop Mahoney on December 18 at 4 PM. Then the first of 3 series formats test the combatants when 6 and 7 schools pool up for event style wrestling. Series One sees Bethlehem and Walter Murray host schools from around the city and Series Two has ED Feehan and Tommy Douglas invite schools from around the city for new challenges and fresh competitiors for all athletes. Series 3 on February 12 at Bedford Road and Holy Cross concludes the series style format which by the concluding event have wreslers from around the city having seen each other in competitiion at least once in the year in their preparation for the city championship.

Back again in 2009 is the Dual League Championship on February 5,a favorite of al wrestlers, as they take on individual challenges with the opportunity to gain points for their school and win the overall league title for their school.  Schools go head to head in a championship bracket style format which sees semi final and final matchups.

The Jr. City Championship strictly for wrestlers in Grades 9 and 10 is back on February 26 and all wrestlers have their sights on a City Championship hosted this year at Centennial Collegiate on March 5 and 6.  Saskatoon also hosts the Provincial Wrestling Championship at Mount Royal on March 13 and 14.

Tests and challenges throughout the season and event style wrestling which will add tournament toughness to the schedule have wrestling enthusiasts talking.  Whether as a competitor or as a fan, catch wrestling during the season at any or all of the events scheduled.  See wrestling schedule for more information.
