  • We will be in the west lot, in the back of the parking lot, across from the Veterans field entrance.
  • All the pizzas will be lined up by type In the order on the sheet.
  • Coach Frie and I will be handing out the pizzas and helping with the count.
  • Bring a copy of your form. If you cannot find yours we will have one copy.
  • The pizza comes in boxes and we will send a box or bag home with you to carry your order.
  • Once you receive the pizza we recommend that you deliver them after practice or ensure they get in a freezer. They need to remain frozen.

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.

Winter Training at No Nonsense Wrestling

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.
