RIVER BEND WRESTLING
Welcome to River Bend Wrestling!
Practices run from November through February.
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 River Bend MS. 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 Potomac Falls High School.
The team will practice two evenings a week (Mon/Thurs @ 7-8:30 pm) in the Potomac Falls High School wrestling room, beginning on November 10th. The season concludes around the end of February.
At the current time, we are planning to hold joint practices with the Seneca Ridge Middle School team. This will benefit the wrestlers by providing more workout partners at each weight. Our team will be led by head coach Jason Coverdale as well as coaches from Potomac Falls High School and Eastern Loudoun Wrestling Club.
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 hope to participate in one or more meets at local high schools, including Potomac Falls, 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 everyone to purchase their gear from Top of the Podium Wrestling Center, a local 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Sterling.
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 River Bend 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.
