A message from Head Coach Todd Allan:
On behalf of my coaches and staff, I would like to personally thank all our supporting cast for all you do for our Watauga Wrestling Program. As we enter a new season, I want to invite everyone to come out and watch us compete. As many of you already know, to wrestle and compete at this level of competition takes hard
work, dedication and persistence from everyone associated with our group. Our mission is to encourage every student/athlete to become a champion on and off the mat and foster an environment where academic integrity, respect for others, and competitive athletic excellence is highly valued.
How you can help Pioneers Wrestling Team:
2012 was another year of great accomplishment for the Watauga Wrestling Program. Our goal is to rebuild the program and become one of the top teams in the State of North Carolina. This expectation demands a lot of hard work, perseverance from our athletes, staff, and parents. Our goals for the 2013 season are higher than they've been in the past and to reach our goals we will need to raise money.
Unfortunately, our Wrestling program is not fully funded and the financial support of our friends, family, and community is essential to our program's success. In order to compete with other teams in North Carolina we must stay overnight and all the funds raised will go directly to pay for our competitions that give our athletes the best chance to compete in a sport they love.
It is because of this need for funding, that we request your financial assistance as we continue our efforts to provide a championship caliber program to our kids. Any contributions we receive will be used to cover our teams scheduled travel, meals, tournament entry fees, as well as supplies needed to maintain our practice facilities and equipment. Most importantly your generous donation will provide our wrestlers and coaches with the support needed to develop strong, disciplined young men of character, pride and integrity.
All the Watauga wrestlers got together and each created a personal fundraising page to send out to our friends and family. I thought that I would send it to the important people in my life, so I hope you don’t mind that I included you.
Our goal is to raise enough money with this fundraiser to help cover the some of the many expenses that we have during the season. Our coach has challenged each of us to raise $300, but my personal goal is to raise much more! If you would be willing to help me out with a donation I would really appreciate it. I will keep you posted on how my team and I are doing as we continue through our season. Thanks again and hopefully you’ll be able to come out this fall, as we make our march toward a region title!
