Wrestling Winterim Trip - Wheaton Academy

Wrestling Winterim Trip

During the two weeks of Winterim, the team will be taking a trip to visit the Olympic Training Center located in Colorado. On the way there and the way back, we will be visiting several collegiate campuses with wrestling programs to see their facilities and learn more about the sport of wrestling. We may even catch a meet or two. We are also trying to schedule one or two matches against opponents from the states we pass through. The time that we are back at WA, we will be making several other trips to local colleges as well as do some service projects. The reason for this trip is to make sure that we, as a program, don’t take any steps backward away from our season progress over the course of Winterim. This will be a great time to bond with your teammates as well as become a better wrestler.

The trip dates will depend on our conference schedule.


Families that wish to have their students participate in and attend any WA trip that requires a family financial contribution must first have their tuition account current at the time of application and until the trip departure.
