Registration for FG Junior Viks

The Forest Grove Junior Viks wrestling program will be holding sign-ups from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Forest Grove High School wrestling gym.

Registration forms and other info can be picked up in advance at Frye’s Action Athletics. Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., with an intense practice session available until 7:30. Matches will be held on Saturdays and some weeknights. Uniforms will be provided, but athletes will need to provide their own wrestling shoes.

As part of the Junior Viks wrestling program, beginning wrestlers will be exposed to a series of fun yet challenging games, drills, and exercises that will help them master the elements of balance, rhythm, spatial orientation, and the ability to react to both auditory and visual stimuli.
