Several outstanding wrestling clubs serve boys and girls in Loudoun County during the main winter wrestling season.

Therefore, this page provides information about local opportunities in the winter season for elementary-age kids.

Step #2 If you're unsure about joining a team this winter, attend one of TOP's free "Discover Wrestling" trial practices this fall (dates will be published here once finalized) or attend our Introduction to Wrestling Summer Camp.
Step #3 Join the world's oldest sport! The following section provides general information and links to local clubs.
Youth Winter Wrestling in Loudoun County
Wrestling clubs in Loudoun generally serve boys and girls with DOB 2004-2013. In most cases, clubs hold two evening practices per week and provide the option of competing in weekend tournaments.
The main season generally begins in early-to-mid November and concludes in late February. Top of the Podium offers other programs throughout the entire year.
Youth are usually divided by age and experience level. As athletes progress in the sport, they attend more advanced practice sessions and compete at different times.
To begin wrestling, an athlete joins a local club. In many cases, new wrestlers pick a club that offers convenient practice times or locations. However, some families evaluate clubs by learning more about their coaches, philosophies, etc.
Currently, four major clubs serve the county. In general, they draw kids from the towns closest to their practice locations. But again, families may choose to join any club they prefer.
Here are the main Loudoun clubs:
Dulles South (Route 50 corridor)
Eastern Loudoun (Sterling and Ashburn)
Ranger Wrestling (Leesburg)
Western Loudoun (Purcellville)
Visit the above sites to learn more about specific ages, practice times, etc. You can register for a club on its respective web site and/or contact coaches with questions.
