The Elementary Program and HEWPA
Honesdale Elementary Wrestling is a non profit group fully administered by the volunteer efforts of the parents of the wrestlers – H.E.W.P.A. (Honesdale Elementary Wrestling Parent Association). Wrestler parent participation is required for a successful season. A board of directors is appointed and monthly parent meetings are held during the season. In 2016 we had 43 wrestlers from Honesdale and surrounding areas ranging in age from 5 to 12. Wrestlers practice up to three times per week and participate in weekend tournaments during the regular season which spans from November to February, and into the extended season which can go year – round
Currently, all of our funds are raised in cooperation with parents of wrestlers and the hard work of our volunteer Board of Directors. We raise money through food sales, tournament hosting, and clothing sales.
