STERLING MIDDLE SCHOOl WRESTLING
Welcome to Sterling MS Wrestling!
Practices begin in early November!
Become part of history by joining the first ever wrestling team to represent our school during the 2017-2018 season!
For our first season, we will practice with River Bend Middle School at Top of the Podium, just a short distance from Sterling MS. There will be wrestlers with experience on the team, but there will be 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 Park View High School.
The team will be led by long-time Sterling WC coach Don Griffith.
The team will practice two evenings a week (Mon/Thurs @ 8-9:30 pm) at Top of the Podium. There will also be an optional practice on Tuesday afternoons (4:30-6:00) at TOP. The season runs from early November until 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 this fall.
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 $219. This includes a USA Wrestling membership and registration in the Dulles Duals Middle School league.
