Welcome to the 2021 Woodside High School Wrestling Team! The entire coaching staff is excited to continue our tradition of excellence in developing YOUR student athletes. It takes a lot of resources to execute a quality program for student athletes and we thank you in advance for your support.
The ABO provided $2200 for new uniforms this year! Please consider a donation to the boosters so they can make large investments in wrestling and other athletic programs at Woodside.
Below is a suggested family contribution that will keep the coaching staff focused on Wrestling, rather than fundraising. This suggested donation is NOT a requirement for participation. We are hoping you will help the team and your Athletic Boosters Organization (ABO) by making the following team contribution:

Support the Athletic Booster Organization
Your donation to the Athletic Boosters Organization supports all athletes and sports in several ways in addition to supplying uniforms and equipment for individual sports.
At Woodside High School, all of our athletes have access year-round to a qualified trainer who works as the Strength and Conditioning Coach. He helps the student-athletes prepare for their upcoming season, maintain their strength and flexibility during the season and recover from injuries when they happen. With the help of your donations and corporate sponsorships, we have been able to fund this position fully at an annual cost of over $17,000.
Your donation is also funding JV and Assistant Coach stipends, allowing teams to support more athletes and foster junior athletes. Usually, the school has been able to fund most of these stipends with rent money paid by summer camps. However, because of the on-campus construction during the past two summers, WHS did not receive enough money to cover all the stipends. For 2018-19, with your help, we have been able to cover the $15,000 gap and keep these sports programs thriving and developing younger athletes.
All coaches at Woodside also have video analysis software and equipment available. This tool is being used by sports as diverse as football and water polo. Coaches can review practices and games so they can give the best possible feedback on what the athletes most need to develop. We are very proud that we can provide our athletes with this state of the art software to enhance their athletic experience while at Woodside. The annual cost of this software is $3500.
For Wrestling, the ABO has paid for:
October 2019 - $2200 Uniforms
October 2018 - $600 Tournament Fees
November 2017 - $1720 for new uniforms
2015 - $7000 for new mats!
