EAGLE RIDGE WRESTLING
Welcome to Eagle Ridge Wrestling!
We are busy preparing for the upcoming 2017-2018 season! Last year, we formed the first ever Eagle Ridge Wrestling Team with the support of the Briar Woods HS wrestling program, and the athletes had a fantastic season. The team truly bonded and made tremendous progress. This winter, Eagle Ridge is back and looking to build on its momentum.
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 we also expect a lot 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 is once again led by head coach Joe Nestor along with an excellent staff of assistant coaches.
The team will practice on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 pm in the Briar Woods High School wrestling room, beginning in early November. There is also an optional Tuesday afternoon practice (4:30-6:00) at Top of the Podium in Sterling.
Our team competes in the Middle School division of the popular Dulles Duals. These events are held at Top of the Podium on Saturdays throughout the season. We also compete in TOP's Winter Wrestling Series on other Saturdays. Our uniforms consist of fight shorts and compression shirts! We also hope to participate in one or more meets at local high schools, including Briar Woods, in conjunction with high school varsity matches.
The required equipment 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 team provides 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, Brambleton and Sterling areas. Click here for more information about ELWC. You will register on the Eastern Loudoun web site.
