EAGLE RIDGE WRESTLING
The 2017-2018 season is well underway! 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, including Cory Durant and Ryan Jones.
The team practices on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 pm in the Briar Woods High School wrestling room, beginning on November 8. If you want to try a practice before joining, please contact Coach Nestor in advance (there are special parking restrictions at the school).
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 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. Click here for store hours.
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.
