  • Practices are held at Papillion-LaVista South High School in the wrestling room. Three nights a week for 1 ½ hour each. Please check the calendar for details.

There are times during the season that this team will travel to tournaments outside of the Omaha metro area. Parents are responsible for all associated costs (tournament fees, hotel, etc.)

notice to open parents

Due to the lack of space, parents are not allowed in the wrestling room while practice is in session. If you choose to stay at the high school during practice, please sit quietly in the hallway just outside of the wrestling room doors.  If you bring a child with you to practice, please ensure they stay with you in the hallway at all times. We are not allowed to walk around any other area of the school during practice.

Parents are not allowed on the mats during tournaments unless it is to take a picture or video tape. If you are on the mat to take photos or videos, please be respectful of the coaches’ space while the match is happening. As the wrestler’s Mom and Dad, they will listen and look to you before us (coaches). You have us coach them all week long at practice; let us coach them at the tournaments. Parents will be warned about being on the mats and asked to return to the stands twice in a season. If the issue arises again, disciplinary action can/will include your child not wrestling in the next tournament(s).
