The Knights are now competing in the
Northern Virginia Wrestling Federation during the Winter!
The objective of the KWA's youth program is to develop body-awareness, agility, and confidence. Wrestlers will direct their focus towards preparing for the next level - high school. This includes establishing routines through technique-specific training, exercising patience and persistence through challenging experiences that mirror the real-world, and demonstrating respect under all circumstances to their peers and instructors.
Youth Program Details
Duration: November 2019 - February 2020
Practices: We run twice a week during the evenings. Wrestlers must bring clean workout gear and shoes to every practice. Headgear is optional at practices, though strongly recommended. If a wrestler wears braces, they are required to wear a top and bottom mouthguard!
Events & Travel: All competition will be held on Sundays throughout the day. Parents must provide transportation for children. No exceptions.
Fees include the NVWF registration fee, a USA Wrestling card, one KWA drawstring bag, and one KWA lanyard. Additionally, pricing includes training services on regularly scheduled practices days and hours with the exception of federal holidays. Coaches will be present at pre-determined/announced events on Sundays.
Fees do not include a singlet, wrestling shoes, or headgear. Orders will be processed by the first week of November.
Founded in 1966, the Federation brings over 1,800+ wrestlers together to grow the sport of wrestling. Unfortunately, children in pre-school are not permitted to participate. All competition will be within the designated age groups, which are broken down into the following:
6 & Under - "Bantams"
8 & Under - "Midgets"
10 & Under - "Juniors"
12 & Under - "Intermediates"
14 & Under - "Seniors"
Training for the league officially begins in November and culminates in a tournament at the end of February. All events will run on Sundays.
Practices will be divided into two sessions based on the age groups (Bantam-Juniors & Intermediates-Seniors) effective during the Winter of 2019-2020.
