Berlin Youth Wrestling Club was designed to help promote and develop the Wrestling programs for boys and girls in Kindergarten through Eighth grades. The development will focus on providing the youth with the fundamental understanding and enjoyment of wrestling. Participation and sportsmanship will be stressed at all levels, with a primary concern for developing basic individual skills and general team concepts.
Representatives of the Berlin Youth Wrestling Club including, but not limited to, board members, committees, and match officials have total control of, and complete authority over, all competition. All decisions made by these persons are final and have full support of the Berlin Youth Wrestling Club.
These representatives are commissioned by the Berlin Youth Wrestling Club to take any action deemed necessary to guarantee a positive atmosphere for competition. To help ensure a positive atmosphere, athletes, coaches, and spectators are expected to do the following:
- stand during the National Anthem
- maintain self-control at all times
- show respect for opponents
- support your team in a positive manner
- recognize and acknowledge good performance by all teams and individuals
- be humble in victory and gracious in defeat
Unsportsmanlike conduct, on the part of wrestlers, coaches, managers, or spectators will not be tolerated and may result without warning in expulsion (team and/or individual) from the Berlin Youth Wrestling Club.
Unsportsmanlike conduct includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- “trash talking”,
- foul language, and
- verbal abuse/intimidation of opponents, game officials and/or representatives of the Berlin Youth Wrestling Club.
No individual or team refunds will be given ifexpulsion occurs. It is expected that athletes, coaches, and spectators exercise totalcooperation with these representatives at all times.
I have read, understand, and share the above philosophy, and hereby state that I will do my part in ensuring an enjoyable experience for all involved.
