We may have guest coaches such as current and/or former SCHS wrestlers and guest clinicians USA wrestling certified.
Traditionally, SCAA wrestling season is in the winter and runs from November through February with 2-3 practices a week typically Tuesday-Thursday, and 8 wrestling competitions in the Northern Virginia Wrestling Federation (NVWF) league that consists of 6 counties including Fairfax, Alexandria City, Arlington, Prince William, Stafford, Loudon, and Orange.
Please enter the Kiss N Ride entrance and drop athletes off at entrance 11. Athletes only are allowed in the building at this time due to FCPS COVID guidelines. You may enter door 11 to make introductions and any special messages for the first few practices. First time families will be allowed in once to see the layout of the wrestling room, which is just inside entrance 11, and meet the coaches to enhance comfortability. Practices will include a warm up, stretching, technique guidance, drilling of moves, and games such as relays will be played. Practice attendance tracking will be required through a team website so we can plan accordingly for training partners and coaching availability.
