All athletes must have a physical on file and complete an impact test prior to our first practice (October 23rd). Impact tests from last year were taken by CHOA and since that time, we have changed providers. Therefore, EVERY athlete needs to have an updated impact test.
Please remember all athletes must have a valid physical on file to be impact tested.
Our next mass testing date will be September 26th at 3:45, with no students being permitted in the testing area after that time.
Physical Forms can be found at the link on this website OR at the link provided below.

The team took 11 wrestlers to Woodland camp over the summer. The camp highlighted escaping from bottom, front headlock, and many other techniques valuable to team. We’ll be sure to see their individual improvement in the fall!
Etowah brought 4 wrestlers to the camp at Chattanooga and stayed several days to enhance their skills even further. Alex Pham made it to All-star team where he competed with some of the best wrestlers at the camp in a dual against other wrestlers. The team learned lots of character building during this camp as well.
Skyler Shuman and Blake Smith competed in Freestyle and Greco over the summer. Skyler
placed 2nd in Southeast Regions and went on to compete at Tulsa National Duals and Fargo Individual Duals.
These guys all did an outstanding team in showing their dedication to the sport over the summer and throughout the school year! What a way to represent Etowah Wrestling!
This year team gear will take on a new appearance. In accordance to GHSA rules and changes, wrestlers must wear either singlets or approved t-shirts and shorts. Some area schools are allowing the youth to get the alternative apparel option with the incentive of “earning” their singlet when they participate at the varsity level. For this reason, the singlets will be the gear of choice for our athletes. Some athletes have expressed an interest in purchasing new singlets and ¼ zip jackets. This will be left up to the individual and will ONLY be ordered if we generate a large enough interest in the singlets and ¼ zip jackets. These items will not be a part of the spirit wear this year. The spirit wear will be priced at $75 per player. The athlete will be responsible for this gear and it must be ordered by October 15 to get it in time for the season. Player packs will include the following listed items: Pullover hoodies, Jogging pants Drifit Shorts, T Shirts We are a team and the goal is to look like a team. This attire must be approved by GHSA and we would like to have the apparel in time for the first tournament, in November. An order form will be made available at the parent meeting. Order forms will also be sent out in a separate email. Money for apparel is due at the time of the order.
