Frequently Asked Questions




Will there be a bus for the upcoming match?


For most Dual meets and JV Quad matches there is a bus provided.  Pinellas county does not provide buses for Varsity tournaments.  It is extremely expensive for us to charter a bus.  Therefore for tournaments we use private vehicles for transportation.


What time does my wrestler need to be to the school for the match?


For Dual Meets and JV Quads:


Be at East Lake: 4pm


Bus departs:  5:30 or earlier (if away)


Wrestling begins: 6:30 pm 

Varsity Tournaments:


Times will vary.  I let the guys know the week of the tournament.  An emal letting parents know is also sent by the booster club.  I also  always tell the wrestlers to relay this information to mom and dad.

Are Holiday practices mandatory?


Our holiday practice schedules are fairly light.  Being that we are a winter sport, it is our responsibility to keep in shape during our breaks.  I ask that each family make every effort to have their son attend practice.  Our coaching staff puts aside their time to be there.
