EAGLE RIDGE WRESTLING
Welcome to Eagle Ridge Wrestling!
Become part of history by joining the first ever wrestling team to represent our school during the 2016-2017 season!
This team is primarily for students who attend Eagle Ridge MS. The season runs from November through February. There will be wrestlers with experience on the team, but for the most part, our group will be comprised of brand new wrestlers. So it's a fantastic opportunity to join the "world's oldest sport" and determine if it's an activity you'll want to continue at Briar Woods.
The Eagle Ridge team will be led by Bill Jones and the Briar Woods HS coaching staff along with Joe Nestor, club coach at Eastern Loudoun Wrestling Club.
The team will practice two evenings a week (Tues/Thurs @ 7-8:30 pm) in the Briar Woods High School wrestling room, beginning on November 10th. We must park in the back of the building in the gravel lot and enter through door B3. The season concludes around the end of February.
Our team will compete in the new Middle School division of the super popular Dulles Duals. These exciting events are held at Top of the Podium on Saturdays throughout the season. Our new uniforms consist of fight shorts and compression shirts! We will compete as a team and expect most wrestlers to get 10-20 matches over the season. We also intend to participate in one or more meets at local high schools, including Briar Woods, in conjunction with high school varsity matches.
Wrestlers have the option of competing more frequently during the season. The coaching staff will explain all such opportunities once the season begins.
The required equipment needed for wrestling is a headgear and wrestling shoes. We encourage you to purchase your equipment at TOP OF THE PODIUM Wrestling Center in Sterling. TOP is a local, 501(c)3 nonprofit and prices are usually lower than big box stores. Hours are limited, so email TOP before making the trip.
Similar to other sports, the club will provide each wrestler with a school compression shirt for competition, but wrestlers will supply their own fight shorts (coaches will provide more information on this).
To register for the Eagle Ridge team, you must join a local youth wrestling club. We are proud to affiliate with Eastern Loudoun Wrestling Club that serves the Ashburn and Sterling areas. Click here for more information about ELWC. You will register on the Eastern Loudoun web site.
ELWC fees for the entire 2016-2017 season (Nov-Feb) are $199. This includes a USA Wrestling membership and registration in the Dulles Duals Middle School league.
To register for this team, sign up for the "Eastern Loudoun Leopards" and select "Eagle Ridge MS" team when prompted.
