Welcome to Trailside Wrestling !
We are busy preparing for the upcoming 2017-2018 season! Last year, we formed the first ever Trailside Wrestling Team with the strong support of the Stone Bridge HS wrestling program, and the athletes had a outstanding season.
This team is primarily for students who attend Trailside 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 Stone Bridge.
SPECIAL ORIENTATION EVENT!
We will hold an orientation and trial practice at Stone Bridge High School in October (exact date tbd). This is a great way to be introduced to the sport, meet coaches and teammates, and actually get to wrestle---so bring your friends so you can show who is the boss! :-)
RSVP is not necessary, just show up. Please wear gym clothes (no zippers, belts, jewelry, or sharp objects).
The team will practice 3x a week (Tues/Wed/Thurs) from 7-8:30 pm in the Stone Bridge High School wrestling room, beginning in early November, under the direction of returning head coach Mike Froelich. Depending on total enrollment, we expect to once again practice with the Farmwell Station MS team.
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 Trailside 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.
