Casual jobs can last from a couple of hours to a week, and may range in activities from lawn care to painting to indoor housework. The odd jobs you have around your home or office may be bothersome to you, but to a wrestler, they help pay for their wrestling camp and provide valuable experiences that help wrestlers prepare for the work force. All the tools and materials must be provided and the wrestlers will provide the labor. All potential homeowners and employers need to contact our parents to get every job set up. Donations are accepted for all jobs.
Checks must be made payable to: Indian Land Wrestling. Checks are due after jobs are completed. For details, e-mail wrestling coach Mike Kersey at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 548-2916.
