STERLING MIDDLE SCHOOl WRESTLING
Welcome to Sterling MS Wrestling!
Practices begin on November 10!
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 Sterling 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 Park View High School.
You can register anytime (see below) or attend the first two practices as a "free trial" before signing up. This includes the first practice on November 10 and a special welcome/orientation for families and wrestlers on Friday, November 11. You may also attend one of the remaining "Introduction to Wrestling" events prior to the start of the season. See list of remaining locations/times.
The Sterling team will be led by volunteer coach Josh Damico who also is the head coach of the Park View wrestling team.
The team will practice two evenings a week (Tues/Thurs @ 7-8:30 pm) in the Park View High School wrestling room, beginning on November 10th. 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 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. If possible, you'll want to attend TOP's "Get Your Gear" Days on November 8 (11am-1pm and 4-7pm) to purchase your equipment. TOP is a local, 501(c)3 nonprofit and prices are usually lower than big box stores. Further, you receive helpful assistance from people who actually know something about wrestling :-)
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 Sterling 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 "Sterling MS" when prompted.
