Little Eagle Wrestling
For Avon students in grades K-2, this program is a great way to let your child experience the wonderful sport of wrestling in a fun environment. The emphasis is on learning the fundamentals of wrestling and playing wrestling related games – not on wins and losses. K-2 Little Eagle Wrestling is for the novice wrestler with little to no wrestling experience. Sessions are Monday nights 6-7 p.m. in the AHS wrestling room Nov. 4-Dec.

Lacrosse is coming to Avon. The much anticipated Avon Youth Lacrosse Association is gearing up for its 2014 inaugural season and is proud to introduce the country’s fastest growing team sport to the Avon Eagle portfolio. Parents are invited to an informational meeting Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. at the Avon Middle School. During this orientation you will meet the staff and coaches, hear an overview of the game of lacrosse and the equipment needed to play and learn about the teams that make up the newly formed West Shore Lacrosse Conference. For spring 2014, there will be boys teams in three divisions: bantam (third and fourth grade), youth (fifth and sixth grade) and middle school (seventh and eighth grade). Beginners are welcome. We are working to establish a girls’ Lacrosse program at the Middle School level. Registration will begin after the meeting. For more information or to be involved, please visit www.avonlacrosse.org.
