Tonka Wave K-5 Youth Team
Practice and Pizza Pickup Tonight
Practice as normal tonight. If you sold pizza please ensure that you pick it up tonight. Details:
Please make every effort to pick up your pizzas tonight. Coach Frie and I get stuck with the left over pizzas and have to store them in our freezers. Since we both have large orders of our own we do not have a lot of room.
Wayzata Scrimmage Thursday
We will be at home for a scrimmage against the Wayzata Youth Team. Details:
Tonka Wave has partnered with the No Nonsense Wrestling (NNW) in St. Boni to provide additional in-season programs for our wrestlers. Preseason training resumes on January 6th for K-2nd and on January 7th for 3rd - 7th grade.
NNW is based off F.A.S.T. (focused attack style training) where athletes will focus on specific details of footwork, angles, set ups, pressure and top and bottom technique. NNW uses a progressive drilling system that when taught over a period of time that will help young athletes drill and develop correct motor memory. The structure of the in-season sessions will be a lot of drilling and live wrestling. Technique focused will alternate between feet, top and bottom each week which will help keep wrestlers sharp in all positions. This will be a great opportunity for kids to get more mat time, learn new technique and get different looks from different partners during the wrestling season.
