News and Announcements
To our NCW wrestling families.
We received sad news this morning as Tommy Bateman has passed away. In addition to being a star football player and Head Football Coach at Father Ryan, Tommy was a State Champion wrestler at Father Ryan who always gave back to the sport. He was the founder of our beloved Nashville Catholic Wrestling and saw that boys needed to learn some basic fundamentals before going on to wrestle in high school.
Funeral arrangements will be announced later, but please keep his family in your prayers.
This Saturday Oct. 19 we have another coupon drop at Titan’s stadium, and in addition it is “Code Blue”. After placing the coupons, we will actually slide a T shirt over the seat of the chair that folds up. We only have a portion of the stadium and those who help will receive a Code Blue T shirt. We will meet in Parking Lot “M” on the north side of the stadium (river side) at 7:00 am sharp. If “M” is closed try parking lot “S” next to it. Upper Middle School wrestlers, older siblings, parents, friends etc are invited to help. Don’t forget a backpack or sturdy bag with handles for all those participating, and this is a rain or shine event.
**Please reply back to Vic.Wesley@Blackbox.com and let me know if you are attending & how many.
Congratulations Mark Marchetti on winning the 2013 138lb NHSCA Senior National Championship in Virginia Beach, VA! Fabulous Season!
Elite Starts March 5
Attention all wrestlers interested in Elite. Our Elite group will be coached by Adam Koballa, and practice begins on March 5 and 7 at Christ the King, and the remaining ones at Father Ryan. Practices are scheduled for Sunday, Tuesday and Thursdays from 4:00 – 5:30 pm. Elite is designed for the advanced Middle School and High School wrestler serious about getting to the next level.
Newcomers interested in the Elite program will require evaluation by Coaches. Elite will likely continue thru June or July, with numerous tournament opportunities. Cost is $350 for NCW members, plus every participant must purchase their own USA Wrestling card. Financial assistance may be available if needed.

NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO WRESTLE OR PRACTICE WITH ELITE WITHOUT A USA WRESTLING CARD!
This $350 is not a monthly cost but a one-time fee for participation in these practices. Any costs associated with tournaments (entry fees, hotel, travel, etc) will be the responsibility of the wrestler.
