Youth Program

Get ahead of the competition and start training this Summer!

The Knights will officially start competing in the Northern Virginia Wrestling Federation (NVWF) this upcoming Winter.


The Knights

The objective of the KWA's youth program is to develop body-awareness through fun instructional games and exercises to promote life-long physical wellness.

Although the official season with the Federation begins in November, it's never too early to start preparing! The Youth Program will begin practices this Summer!


The Federation

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).
